The league suspended games until Friday, and has counselors available for players or parents who need them.
The boy's parents, who were at the game, are heartbroken, shocked and unable to speak to members of the media, league president and family spokesman Dale Thomas said.
"It's a hard thing to handle for everyone. When you're touched by something of this magnitude, it sends shock waves throughout the community."
