Sure, hockey players remember and celebrate special moments on the ice, but most will tell you some of the best times during the season happen on the team bus travelling to and from games.
This tragedy even goes beyond hockey lovers.
Broadcaster Tyler Bieber was a play-by-play announcer for the Humboldt Broncos.
The push via social media is a way for the country to show support for Humboldt after the bus the Broncos team was traveling in collided with a semi-trailer on a highway in Saskatchewan Friday. "The family of Dayna Brons would like to share that Dayna passed away peacefully this afternoon as a result of her injuries", the statement said.
"They are with you on every road trip, and they are there for you through your good times and bad, so I think it's awesome what they're doing here for her", she said.
After seeing images of the crash that has since claimed the lives of 16 players and staff of the Humboldt Broncos, education assistants Nikki Arsneault and Tamara Fisher came up with the idea of the ribbons.

The children in the photos appeared to be between the ages of 6 months and 15 years, according to the search warrant. Four counts of voyeurism against Downes, however, will go ahead, with Downes scheduled to appear in B.C.
"Being that New Westminster is a fantastic community, I want the Humboldt community to know that we support them; we want to send love their way and to know that they're not alone", said Mary Lalji, one of the event's organizers.
The crash triggered guilt and pain for the 36-year-old Kamloops man as he thought back to 2000 when he was 18 and a junior hockey player with the Revelstoke Grizzlies.
Members of New Westminster city council wore green ribbons at Monday night's council meeting in honour of the lives that were lost in the awful accident. "I think that would be very special". "Support for these poor people in Humboldt", he said, adding it's a near-universal tragedy for a nation that cherishes hockey so much.
Both Saskatchewan RCMP and Alberta Transportation are investigating.
Thursday saw #JerseyDay take off across Canada and around the world, in which people were encouraged to wear their favourite team's colours as a way to honour the Broncos.
