    Canada crash: 14 killed as junior hockey team bus collides with truck.  

    A bus crash involving a junior hockey team in western Canada has killed 14 people and left others seriously injured.

    The Humboldt Broncos, who play in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, were travelling to a semi-final play-off game on Friday evening at 17:00 local time (23:00 GMT) when their bus collided with a transport truck.

    There were 28 people travelling on the bus, aged between 16 and 21, with the 14 others on board taken to hospital where three remain in a critical condition.

    Legree goes out a champion in final season behind the bench


    PLYMOUTH, Minn. – Coach Dave Legree has decided to stop coaching hockey after 35 years in Sioux City, Iowa.

    Legree’s Sioux City Metros sent him out on top.

    Drake Beller had a goal and assist, including the game-winning goal in the third period, as Sioux City came from behind to beat BHC Monarch from Colorado 3-2 in Monday’s Division 2 championship of the Chipotle-USA Hockey High School Nationals in Plymouth, Minnesota.

    “100 percent,” Beller said of trying to give Legree a championship in his final year. “If you’re going to go out, this is the way to do it.”

    Blake Beller made 27 saves for the Metros, who won their first high school national championship. Reece McDonald and James Page also scored for Sioux City.

    “It’s always special when you can go out on top,” Legree said. “Whether we went out on top or not, it was time for me to move on. It’s been fun and this is a very special group of kids. I’m very proud of all of them, just their work ethic.”

    Adam Burtzlaff and Yuta Young each scored for Monarch, which also finished in second place in the high school tournament in 2016. Reese Kelly made 15 saves.

    “I thought we played well the whole game,” Monarch coach Jimmy Dexter said. “I think we just couldn’t bury our chances. We had great scoring chances and the puck wouldn’t go in.”

    Monarch beat the Metros 8-1 during the pool play portion of the tournament and appeared on their way to another lopsided score when Burtzlaff scored just 2:45 into Monday’s title game.

    Young gave Monarch a 2-0 lead midway through the first before Sioux City turned the momentum.

    McDonald scored with 4:35 left in the first with assists to Connor Sandoval and Chase Lewison.

    “You just chip away,” Legree said. “You give a lead like that, you just chip away and you wait for your turn. Finally, the puck bounced our way.”

    Page scored the tying goal late in the second when he was able to poke a puck past Kelly during a scrum in front of the net. Drake Beller, who led the team in scoring during the season, added the game-winner on a rush with a quick, blocker-side wrist shot from the top of the circles.

    Blake Beller was tested plenty in goal late. He made one point-blank save – a true game-saver – with two minutes left to maintain the lead.

    “Last game wasn’t a very good one; let in a lot of weak goals,” Blake said of the first matchup with Monarch. “This one, the team just bounced back and we went out there and got the job done.”

    Both teams were 0-for-3 on the power play, but BHC Monarch had a 29-18 advantage in shots on goal.

    “The 8-1 was everything lined up right, I think,” Dexter said. “They’re really good. I said when we played them, ‘I wouldn’t be surprised if we see them again in the final.’ We got some bounces and it definitely wasn’t an 8-1 game. Today we couldn’t get a bounce.”

    The bounces went the Metros way this time and gave Legree a championship sendoff after three decades of hockey in Sioux City. Legree, who once was in pro camp with the Minnesota North Stars, ended up in Sioux City when his playing career as a minor leaguer ended in the city.

    He coached Sioux City’s players for the final time on Sunday, ending a span where he coached eight of the seniors since they played 12U hockey.

    “I have two grandchildren I don’t see all winter,” Legree said. “I think I need to step back…I retired from hockey when I was 25 and I’ve been in hockey my whole life. I’m 62 years old, I’ll be 63 in May, so it’s in my heart, but the time is right.”
