Humboldt Broncos will be back on the ice next season

The Humboldt Broncos will return for the 2018-19 season.

The announcement comes just over a month after the team’s tragic bus crash April 6. Sixteen members of the Broncos organization lost their lives in the crash and 13 others incurred injuries.

The first thing the Broncos will have to do is recruit their next head coach and general manager. That dual role was previously occupied by Darcy Haugen, who was among 16 that died in the crash.

"Darcy Haugen was selfless, inspirational and motivating, building up his players to be great ambassadors and role models both on the ice and in the community,” Humboldt Broncos president Kevin Garinger said in a statement Friday.

"As a general manager, Darcy made smart decisions and was driven to ensure the Broncos organization succeeded in every aspect of its operations,” Garinger added. “He took our team to new heights - it will be incredibly difficult to find someone that can rise to his standards.”

To refill the talent pool of players, the Broncos are holding an 80-player, invite-only camp from May 25-27 in Saskatoon.
