On April 6, 2018 a horrible bus tragedy happened in Canada that affected every hockey player, the hockey communities and other sports organizations around the globe. A boy, 19 year old Ryan, survived with 12 others, but 16 people on his bus died that day, all of them belonging to the Humboldt Broncos hockey team. They were on their way to a playoff game when the bus crash happened. Recently, Ryan who is paralyzed from the chest down (but alive) relived another harrowing experience when his bus taking him to physiotherapy was rear-ended.
