Humboldt Broncos player joining P.E.I. university hockey team in fall
Nick Shumlanski, 21, will play with UPEI Panthers
A forward with Saskatchewan's Humboldt Broncos who walked away from an April bus crash with minor injuries has decided to keep playing hockey.
Nick Shumlanski, who is 21, has committed to playing for the University of Prince Edward Island Panthers in Charlottetown, P.E.I.
He was one of 13 players injured in April when the junior hockey team's bus and a semi-trailer collided at an intersection in rural Saskatchewan.
Sixteen people on the bus were killed.
The driver of the truck, Jaskirat Singh Sidhu of Calgary, is facing charges.
Several of Shumlanski's teammates have also signed with university hockey teams.
Matthieu Gomercic, 21, and Bryce Fiske, 20, will both join the Ridgebacks at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology in Oshawa, while 21-year-old Kaleb Dahlgren has committed to playing for the Lions hockey team at Toronto's York University.
