WINDSOR, Ontario (AP) -Mickey Renaud, a center with the junior league Windsor Spitfires, died Monday after collapsing at his home in Tecumseh, the team said. Renaud was 19.
Renaud, a fifth-round draft pick by the NHL's Calgary Flames, was taken to a hospital with no vital signs and attempts at resuscitation were unsuccessful, team physician Dr. Roy Diklich said.
Renaud was pronounced dead in the emergency room at Windsor Regional Hospital, the Ontario Hockey League team said on its Web site. An autopsy was scheduled later Tuesday, police said.
Renaud, the captain, was in his third year with the Spitfires and had 21 goals and 41 points in 56 games this season.
``This is the biggest tragedy in Spitfire history,'' Windsor general manager Warren Rychel said in a statement. ``Words alone cannot describe our pain at this time.''
