Edgeworth-based Esmark Inc. created a logo to honor the victims of the Humbolt Broncos hockey team bus crash on April 6, 2018.

Since the Humboldt Broncos bus crash on April 6, Edgeworth-based Esmark Inc. and its minor league hockey team Johnstown Tomahawks have distributed more than 40,000 special decals honoring the lives impacted by the tragedy.

Days after the incident, the company created the special decal to honor the 16 people who were killed and the 13 who were injured who either played or coached for the hockey team that plays in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League.

“As a member of the hockey community, Esmark is memorializing all of those impacted by this incident with this free of charge decal, which can be prominently displayed on hockey helmets, and cars across the U.S. and Canada, ensuring that Humboldt continues to be honored and supported,” Esmark spokesperson Katie Regan said.

The decal is green and yellow and features a Broncos logo in the center. The date of the crash is at the top and the number 29 — for the victims — sits at the bottom of the logo, as well as the saying, “Hockey sticks together.”

Regan said Esmark’s in-kind donation is $25,000 and that 75,000 decals have been produced.

The decals are free. To request one, go to

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
