When he played for the Humboldt Broncos, the shortest trip Austin Duzan took on the team bus was an hour and 20 minutes. Most were much longer.
“It becomes your home away from home, right?” said Duzan, who played for the Broncos from 2014 to 2016, starting as an 18-year-old. “Sometimes six hours on the bus before a game, then you play three hours, and then you’re back on the bus for six hours.”

Even then, Humboldt didn’t have it as bad as other teams [url=http://www.authenticcowboyssho...ony-dorsett-jersey-c-1_38.html]Tony Dorsett Youth Jersey
in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League.

“We were fortunate enough to play in the middle of the division. For people going from Estevan to Flin Flon, that’s a pretty good hike.”

The team bus is a special place for anyone who played junior hockey. It’s a place of close bonding and community for teenaged players who, in most cases, have left their hometowns and their families to chase their hockey dreams.

Players ride the bus in junior leagues all over the world, but hockey on the prairies takes it to a particular extreme. The distances are vast, the towns are tiny, and you’re driving in the dead of winter — frequently in whiteout conditions or with temperatures well below -30 degrees Celsius.

It’s a rite of passage with resonance in Philip Rivers Youth Jersey Saskatchewan, home of the legendary Gordie Howe. In Kyle Juszczyk Jersey Womens the modern era, Saskatchewan produces more NHL players per capita than any other province, with its neighbour Manitoba as the only real competitor. This is hockey heartland by any definition.

When Ryan Shields heard the Broncos team bus had suffered a horrific, deadly crash on Friday, it immediately brought him back twenty years to his days riding the bus with the Kindersley Klippers.

“All the stories we talk about these days are the crazy stuff that happened when we’re on the bus,” he said.

“I could tell you probably a dozen different bus stories from playing in Kindersley, and I would honestly struggle to tell you a dozen different in-game stories. As a junior hockey player, you’re on the bus more than you’re not, really. I was closer to any of those teammates of mine, from the amount of time I spent with them in a single season, than I was to my sisters.”<br />,29860<br /><br /><br /><br />
