Last of 13 players injured in Humboldt Broncos bus crash released from hospital

The Canadian Press | posted Tuesday, Mar 5th, 2019

The final Humboldt Broncos player who was injured in a bus crash last spring has been released from hospital.

The family of Morgan Gobeil says in a statement that the 19-year-old spent 333 days in hospital since the team bus and a transport truck collided at a highway crossing on April 6.

Sixteen people, including 10 players, were killed and 13 players were injured.

Gobeil’s family has said he suffered a significant brain injury.

In the statement, his family says he endured many medical procedures and hours of physical, occupational and speech therapy.

The family says Gobeil has not yet regained his ability to walk or talk, but his loved ones remain hopeful he will someday experience those milestones.

“Morgan now begins the next phase of his journey,” the family said  Monday. “He will have the privilege of working as an outpatient with an excellent therapy team at Saskatoon City Hospital.

“The road is long and challenging, but we are confident Morgan’s work ethic and determination will be the cornerstone of his recovery.”
