SAGINAW, Mich. - The Ontario Hockey League postponed three Saginaw Spirit games on Wednesday so that the team may mourn the death of centre Terry Trafford.
Trafford's body was found dead in his car on Tuesday. The 19-year-old from Toronto was last seen on March 3rd.
The OHL postponed Wednesday's game between the Spirit and Ste. Sault Marie Greyhounds in Saginaw. The league offered to reconvene the team's regular season when the Spirit's players felt ready.
After consulting with the team, Saginaw's players asked to resume their season on Friday in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.
The Spirit will then play in Saginaw against the London Knights on March 15 and host the Greyhounds on March 17.
Wednesday night's game between the Plymouth Whalers and Owen Sound Attack was postponed due to inclement weather.
