OHL postpones second Spitfires game in wake of Renaud's death @NHLdotcom

TORONTO - A second Windsor Spitfires game was postponed by the Ontario Hockey League on Wednesday in the wake of captain Mickey Renaud's death.

Windsor was slated to host the Oshawa Generals on Sunday.

That game, and a contest with the Plymouth Whalers originally slated for Thursday that was postponed Tuesday, will now be rescheduled.

The OHL said an updated Spitfires schedule will be announced early next week.

Meanwhile, the Spitfires also announced plans for a special patch to be worn by all of their players for the remainder of the season. Appearing on the left chest of all team jerseys, it will feature Renaud's No. 18 and "C" within the patch.

The No. 18 will also be painted on the ice behind the goals at Windsor Arena and has been retired, with an official ceremony set for next September.

Renaud collapsed at his Tecumseh, Ont., home Monday and died. He was 19.
