In a release sent out on behalf of the Saskatchewan Ministry of Justice, it was discovered on Sunday night that two members of the Humboldt Broncos Hockey team had been incorrectly identified as one another.
One of the deceased players had previously been identified as Xavier Labelle. This was an identification error and Xavier is not deceased.
Parker Tobin had been misidentified and was previously believed to have survived, but did lose his life.
The Office of the Chief Corner apologized for the misidentification in their statement, and extended their deepest sympathies to the families and friends involved in the situation.
