The bus crash involving the Humboldt Broncos was one of the most heartbreaking moments; not just of 2018 but in the history of sports.
In the face of tragedy, though, the hockey community came together and rallied to support the survivors of the accident, the families of the victims, and the entire community of Humboldt.
Ryan Straschnitzki was left paralyzed from the chest down from the crash, but that didn’t stop him from following his dreams of playing competitive hockey. Less than a year after the crash, Straschnitzki was back at it playing sledge hockey.
Straschnitzki continues to impress hockey fans and sports fans everywhere during his recovery as he continues to make incredible progress. Early Wednesday morning, Straschnitzki shared a video of his recent progress following a successful surgery in Thailand and it’s truly inspiring how far he’s come.
Way to go, Ryan!
