As the country continues the mourn the loss of 16 members of the Humboldt Broncos family following a bus collision near Nipawin, Sask., on April 6, Toronto native Drake offered his own tribute to the team on Saturday.

Sitting courtside for the Toronto Raptors post-season opener against the Washington Wizards, Drake was spotted wearing a Broncos jersey in honour of the team.

Humboldt has seen an outpouring of support from the sporting world since their tragedy earlier this month, beginning with the #SticksOutForHumboldt movement, which saw community members and NHL teams alike show support for the Broncos.

The GoFundMe page set up to help families and those affected by the tragedy recently surpassed $11 million as the hockey community continues to rally around Humboldt.
