C’s broadcaster Rob Fai also sent along his best wishes to those trying to cope with this tragedy.

Canadians stadium clubhouse attendant Johnny Stewart had this to say.

2014-2015 C’s teammates Gunnar Heidt and Andrew Case also tweeted their support.

Having been a play-by-play broadcaster in hockey and riding the buses in Northern Ontario over 20 years ago, I have a lot of fond memories from those trips in the iron lung. It was a chance to bond with players, coaches, trainers and parents through sharing stories and life experiences, telling jokes and watching movies.

What really shook me to the core was hearing the Broncos radio play-by-play announcer Tyler Bieber was among those killed in the crash. He was only 29 years old. I was in my 20’s when I began my play-by-play career.

My deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers to those affected by this tragedy.
