Survivors from the Humboldt Broncos bus crash are getting the thrill of a lifetime at the NHL Awards this week.

Ten members, along with their families, boarded a plane to Las Vegas, where they’re now getting to rub shoulders with the game’s elite – including future Hall of Famers Henrik and Daniel Sedin.

Brock Boeser and Connor McDavid were also seen in the video above, as players are in town for Wednesday’s awards show. The Sedins are up for the King Clancy Award, while Boeser is a finalist for the Calder Trophy.

The Broncos team will be honoured at the NHL Awards, and their late coach Darcy Haugan has been nominated for the Willie O’Ree Community Hero Award.

The Humboldt news doesn’t stop there, as Washington Capitals centre Chandler Stephenson – a Saskatchewan native – plans to bring the Stanley Cup to Humboldt this summer.

The NHL announced it will also be holding a special event in Humboldt, which will include an on-ice skills competition, led by Saskatoon-born Brayden Schenn.
