Tom Cochrane changed the lyrics of his song “Big League” for a special performance honouring the Humboldt Broncos on Tuesday night.

The original 1988 song is written from the perspective of a father whose son was a hockey player with big dreams cut short by a truck driving in the wrong lane

Cochrane’s new verses:
“All the right moves when he turned 18. Ridin’ to the game and ridin’ with his team. Ridin’ with their friends and ridin’ for their dreams. Ridin’ off to immortality in the big league.”

“Never can tell what might come down. Never can tell when you might check out. You just don’t know, no you never can tell.”
As he performed, photos of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League team were shown on the big screen.
