RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Hockey fans in Richmond have joined in a global movement to leave their sticks outside in emotional tributes to members of a junior hockey team.
Late last week, 15 people died and 10 others were hurt after their bus collided with a tractor-trailer truck in Canada.
The tribute started when a broadcaster from The Sports Network tweeted out a picture saying his friend was leaving out his hockey sticks. He urged everyone to do the same.
There are even some sticks on porches in Richmond.
"Richmond isn't a big hockey town, but it is growing, and I know some of my buddies definitely have them out," said hockey fan Keith Benzin.
If you want to join the movement, post photos of your hockey sticks with the hashtags #putyoursticksout and #Humboldtstrong.
