A trade­mark dis­pute over #Hum­boldtStrong and other slo­gans re­lated to the fa­tal Hum­boldt Bron­cos bus crash in April is be­ing re­solved.

The team took on the Saskatchewan Ju­nior Hockey League af­ter it ap­plied to trade­mark phrases that also in­cluded “Heal­ing is in the Game” and “Sticks on the Porch.” Team pres­i­dent Kevin Garinger said the league’s board of gov­er­nors agreed those trade­marks should be­long to the team and the com­mu­nity. “We are just work­ing through the fi­nal stages of that process to en­sure that it falls in the right­ful hands of the Hum­boldt Bron­cos and our whole Hum­boldt com­mu­nity,” he said.

The Hum­boldt Strong hash­tag showed up af­ter the April 6 crash, which killed 16 peo­ple and in­jured 13 oth­ers when the team’s bus and a semi-truck col­lided at a ru­ral Saskatchewan in­ter­sec­tion.
