Report: Cause of Mickey Renaud's death may not be known for months

The initial autopsy on Windsor Spitfires captain Mickey Renaud has been completed and results were released to the family Tuesday, according to a Toronto Star report.

The report suggests the full extent of why the 19-year-old collapsed and died unexpectedly at his parents house in Tecumseh, Ont., Monday may not be known for months. Tuesday's autopsy was the first in a series of test that will be conducted over the following months to determine the cause of Renaud's death.

The preliminary reports will not be released to the public.

A Calgary Flames draft pick, Renaud had 20 goals and 41 points in in 56 games this season.
