KODIAKS HONOUR HUMBOLDT ON JERSEY DAY 4/12/2018 10:08:15 AM
Many across Canada and the world are doing their part to honour every one of those affected after the Humboldt Broncos bus crash tragedy.
Today, you're encouraged to wear a sports jersey to honour members of the Broncos.
We chat with the Cobourg Nissan Kodiaks new offensive assistant coach Darryl Gibson, who most recently was the 2016 assistant coach for the Durham Turfdogs. Gibson says he is happy to see the surviving Bronco boys leaning on one another.
He adds that the best part about sports is the connections you make that last a lifetime.
A group of hockey parents from Langley, B.C. started the #JerseysforHumboldt plan last weekend to show the victims' families that they are thinking of them.
But they never thought it would catch on worldwide, but the Jersey Day idea spread through social media like wildfire.
Dozens of sports organizations, school boards and local businesses across Canada, the United States and Europe are encouraging their members and students to wear jerseys or green and gold colours today.
Darryl Gibson is eager to join the Kodiaks, as its a bit of a challenge as he's always played defence throughout his career and looks forward to teaching the game to the next generation of pro players. He tells us more in our interview.
The Cobourg Nissan Kodiaks begin their #RoadToTheMann on May 27 at 6 p.m. verses Brampton at the CCC. For tickets, visit cobourgkodiaks.ca.
