MJHL postpones Game 2 in wake of Humboldt tragedy

MJHL Commissioner Kim Davis announced this afternoon that Game 2 of the MJHL Championship series between the Virden Oil Capitals and the Steinbach Pistons will be postponed until further notice.

This comes a day after a terrible tragedy unfolded involving the Humboldt Broncos, in which their team bus collided with a semi-truck resulting in 14 dead and 15 injured.

“Out of the deepest respect to the Humboldt Broncos organization, its players and parents, the SJHL and its member clubs, we do not believe that Sunday’s MJHL playoff game should be played as scheduled,” Davis said in a statement this afternoon. “The MJHL playoff season will resume, but the next few days will be focused on mourning, supporting the SJHL and reflecting on the loss of life that we can’t comprehend at this time.”

Stay tuned to Steinbachpistons.ca, as well as all Pistons social media outlets for an update on the revised schedule as well as ticket information.
