The Humboldt Broncos‘ first regular season game next week on home ice has sold out.

It will be the team’s first home game since a bus crash on April 6 killed 16 people, including 11 members of the team.

The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League team was on its way to Nipawin for a playoff game against the Hawks, who they will face on Sept. 12 at Elgar Petersen Arena.

Tickets for the second home game on Sept. 22, when the Broncos take on the Battleford Stars, went on sale Wednesday morning.
