Jaxon Joseph and the rest of the team and coaching staff are in our thoughts today.
We are extremely saddened to hear that former Eagle Jaxon Joseph has passed away in the Humboldt Broncos bus accident. Jaxon was a member of our team in the 2015-16 season. Rest In Peace. pic.twitter.com/POtRTQFrrx

Mike Babcock is from the area, and this morning at the Leafs morning skate, he was extremely emotional.
Humbolt Broncos…Victims, loved ones. We are reaching out to hold you. To share . In this moment all that ever happened doesn't seem to matter. It did. It does.They do. You do. We love you.
