Broncos' Darcy Haugan honoured at the NHL Awards

Humboldt Broncos Head Coach/GM Darcy Haugan won the inaugural Willie O'Ree Community Hero Award, presented to the person who best utilizes hockey as a platform for participants to build character and develop important life skills for a more positive family experience, at the 2018 NHL Awards in Las Vegas on Wednesday.

The 42 year old was one of 16 people killed when the bus carrying the SJHL team to a playoff game was involved in an accident near Nipawin on April 6.

The award brings awareness to anonymous and uplifting stories of community, making it strong by using hockey as platform. Haugan did that by building young leaders and died doing what he loved, surrounded by the young people to whom he dedicated his life.

Haugan's wife Christina accepted the award and gave a very touching speech.
