 WINDSOR, Ontario (AP) -Medical officials may need months to determine what caused the sudden death of junior hockey player Mickey Renaud.
The 19-year-old captain of the Ontario Hockey League's Windsor Spitfires died Monday after collapsing at his home in Tecumseh, Ontario.
An autopsy was conducted Tuesday, with the results released to Renaud's family, but regional supervising coroner David Eden said details will not be released to the public. He said the autopsy is the first in a series of tests to determine the cause of death.
``The autopsy is really the beginning of a process that will take several months,'' Eden told Windsor radio station CKLW. ``We have a lot of testing to do and we'll be keeping the family updated as the investigation proceeds.''
The Spitfires planned a news conference later Tuesday.
Renaud's funeral is scheduled for Friday in Tecumseh.
The 6-foot-3, 220-pound center was the fourth pick - 143rd overall - by the Calgary Flames in the 2007 NHL entry draft. He showed solid development last season when he scored 22 goals and totaled 54 points in 68 OHL games.
Renaud, who wore No. 18, had 21 goals and 41 points in 56 games this season. He was in the lineup when Windsor won 4-1 in Owen Sound on Sunday.
