'Slap Shot' Stars the Hanson Brothers Pay Tribute to Humboldt Broncos Bus Crash Victims
On Friday (April 5), 15 people were killed and 14 injured when a semi-trailer truck collided with the team bus of the Humboldt Broncos, a junior hockey team from Saskatchewan. People around the globe have since come together to mourn and support the families of the victims and their surrounding communities.

A tribute to the team has now come from the Hanson Brothers, who starred in George Roy Hill's 1977 sports comedy Slap Shot. A photo from the crash site has surfaced showing a shattered copy of the film on DVD lying on the ground.

"It has been brought to our attention that the broken cd of #SlapShot was found at the wreck of the #HumboltStrong team bus," the trio of Jeff Carlson, Steve Carlson and David Hanson wrote on Twitter. "We wish 'putting on the foil or 'buying a soda after the game' could help but instead we will reflect and pray God gives peace and comfort during this time."

An online fundraising campaign set up to assist the affected families has raised over $5 million in two days
