TORONTO - The Ontario Hockey League has announced the rescheduled dates for two Spitfires games that were postponed in Windsor last week after the sudden death of captain Mickey Renaud.
The Oshawa Generals will visit the Windsor Arena on March 4 at 7:05 p.m. ET to make up their game originally scheduled for Feb. 24. The Plymouth Whalers will visit Windsor on March 11 at 7:05 p.m. ET to make up their game originally scheduled for Feb. 21.
The Spitfires will honour Renaud on Thursday before their home game against the Belleville Bulls. Players on the Ontario Hockey League team will wear patches with his No. 18 on their jerseys.
Renaud's number will also be painted on the ice behind both goals. The Spitfires will retire the number in September and the team will not name another captain this season.
The 19-year-old Renaud, drafted last year by the Calgary Flames, collapsed Feb. 18 at his home in Tecumseh, Ont., a bedroom community east of Windsor.
Preliminary autopsy results have only been released to the family and the coroner has said it could be months before the cause of death is determined.
