Senators react to Humboldt crash

"It's pretty hard not to hold back tears when you talk about something that like that," said an emotional Mark Stone. "I did those roads trips 20 to 30 times in junior and you never expect something like that to happen."

Addressing the media for the final time of the season on Monday, several members of the Ottawa Senators offered their condolences to those who have been affected by the fatal crash involving the Saskatchewan Junior 'A' Humboldt Broncos.

"It's pretty hard not to hold back tears when you talk about something that like that," said an emotional Mark Stone. "I did those road trips 20 to 30 times in junior and you never expect something like that to happen." 

Zack Smith grew up in Maple Creek, Saskatchewan, about 500 kilometres southwest of Humboldt. 

"I don't think there's any words you can say or anything you can do that would kind of take the edge off of that. I hope they know that there's a lot of people around the hockey world and around this country that are thinking about them." 

Forward Matt Duchene also offered his condolences Monday, mentioning that him and some teammates are working on coming together as a group to offer helps of the families who have been affected.
