The Humboldt Broncos #28 is has been transferred to City Hospital in Saskatoon. Layne Matechuk suffered a brain injury in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash on April 6th.
But his family says the road is not going to be easy. Layne Matechuk’s family issued a statement through the Saskatchewan Health Authority and say after spending the first month in a coma, Layne is now awake and making steady progress. They say he has not yet been able to speak and doesn’t appear to know what has happened.
Layne Matechuk’s family continues to ask that their privacy is respected but want to thank all those from family and friends to strangers and medical professionals who have supported Layne in his recovery.
Layne’s transfer to City Hospital is part of his rehabilitation and while his family points out they would like to say it is getting easier, it isn’t, and they do not know when he will get to leave the hospital.
However, they are using #believe as they’re motto, “We #believe the strength and determination that brought Layne success on the ice will bring him success in the months and years ahead.”
