Mike Babcock fights back tears while talking about Sask. bus crash

Leafs forwards Tyler Bozak and Patrick Marleau, both from Saskatchewan, as well as Toronto defenceman Morgan Rielly, shared their own thoughts in front a backdrop featuring the Humboldt Broncos logo alongside the Maple Leafs logo. 

Meanwhile, Humboldt resident Sylvie Kellington, whose son played for the Broncos Bantam A team last season, started a GoFundMe campaign following the crash. As of Saturday afternoon, the crowdfunding campaign has already raised nearly $1 million in less than 24 hours.
