One tender gesture was caught on camera as 12-year-old Matthew Heaney of Whitby, Ont., returned home from school on Wednesday.
In a moment captured by the family's video doorbell, he notices a hockey stick with green tape in honour of the Broncos' team colours on his family's porch.
My family left a hockey stick on our porch for the humboldt broncos, and our ring doorbell caught this video of my little brother looking at the stick when he came home from school. Watch until the end, heartbreaking. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/humboldtstrong?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#humboldtstrong</a> <a href="https://t.co/6I9Zu6gF9V">pic.twitter.com/6I9Zu6gF9V</a>—@v_heaney16
