VANCOUVER — The Vancouver Canucks donated 1,000 tickets to Sunday’s game to students grieving the loss of a classmate who was fatally stabbed.
Global News reports the NHL team will donate the tickets to students and their families, staff and teachers at the school.
The stabbing happened Nov. 1., when a man entered Abbotsford Senior Secondary school in British Columbia, Canada with a knife, CBC reports.
Letisha Reimer, 13, was killed and a 14-year-old girl was injured.
Police charged Gabriel Klein, 21, with second-degree murder and assault. Klein has appeared in court twice and has been uncooperative. It is not yet clear why Klein entered the school and stabbed the students.
A GoFundMe has been created to support Reimer’s family. As of Nov. 12, the campaign has raised more than $50,000.
The Canucks will play the Dallas Stars at 1 p.m.
