Dayna Brons, the athletic therapist for the Humboldt Broncos, has died of her injuries, according to the Saskatchewan Health Authority.

The health authority issued a statement Wednesday on behalf of her family.

“Dayna passed away peacefully this afternoon as a result of her injuries. She was surrounded by those she loved and those who loved her,” the statement reads.

“Dayna will be forever remembered for her joyful smile, and her passion and love of sport.”

Brons was “extremely proud to be part of the Broncos family,” according to her family.

The statement thanks first responders, emergency staff, “all those who have cared for Dayna over these last few days for their support” and “everyone across Saskatchewan and Canada for their love and prayers during this very difficult time.”

The family has asked for privacy and is “also requesting everyone using social media networks to respect their privacy as well.”

Brons studied kinesiology and human kinetics at the University of Regina and athletic therapy at Mount Royal University.

The University of Regina’s Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies said on Twitter that it was “deeply saddened” to learn of the death of the 2016 graduate. “Our most sincere condolences are with Dayna’s family and friends through this difficult time,” it said.

Former NHL player Sheldon Kennedy also shared his condolences, saying he was “devastated.”

“I met Dayna and her family and I know the love they have for one another,” Kennedy wrote. “RIP”

The Broncos’ team bus was involved in a collision last Friday near Tisdale, Sask.

Brons is the sixteenth victim of the collision to die. Thirteen others were injured.
