Layne Matechuk hits the ice
Former Humboldt Broncos defenceman Layne Matechuk is back in his happy place as his father, Kevin, tweeted a video of the former skating this week.
Matechuk is one of the 13 Broncos injured in the crash that killed 16, and spent months in a coma after receiving a brain injury in the crash that shook the hockey world.
The video shows Matechuk skate around the net, stick handle and rip a snap shot with some juice on it at net.

Here’s what the NHL wrote about the jerseys:
Front and center is the Henderson Silver Knights logo, representing the place we’re proud to call home.
Gold detailing throughout the jerseys, Vegas’ logo on the shoulders and the warhorse’s golden eyes remind our players of their ultimate goal: Advancing to the level of the Golden Knights.
The jerseys are comprised of six colors: White, Henderson Metallic Silver, Henderson Silver, Vegas Gray, Black and Vegas Metallic Gold.
Both sweaters feature multiple metallic accents – from the names and numbers on the back, to the forearms and bands across the waist – paying homage to the glitz and glamour of the parent club in Vegas.
The sleeves feature an embossed filigree pattern, in dark gray on the silver jersey and metallic silver on the white.
Black gloves with gold accents will accompany the silver uniform, while the white will feature white gloves with gold accents.
