RENAUD is a local hero
By Allan MAKI, Page S3
Mickey RENAUD touched the hearts of many people in his short life, none more so than Akim ALIU.
The two were Ontario Hockey League rookies with the Windsor Spitfires in 2005 when ALIU was attacked in practice by teammate Steve DOWNIE, who cross-checked ALIU in the mouth and knocked out three teeth.
Though just 16, RENAUD reached out to ALIU, who was shunned by several Spitfires to the point where he eventually had to be traded. Little wonder news of RENAUD's sudden death on Monday shook ALIU, who now plays for the London Knights.
"He was unbelievable to me," ALIU said. "I had all my pregame meals at his house. I knew his family, his brother and sister. He helped me so much. It's such a tragic thing."
ALIU described RENAUD as "one of the nicest kids I know" and recalled how the two would talk to one another even during games.
"We talked about how we were doing, if we were playing well, that kind of stuff," said ALIU, who also chatted with RENAUD during last year's National Hockey League draft when ALIU was selected by the Chicago Blackhawks and RENAUD by the Calgary Flames.
An autopsy was conducted yesterday on the 6-foot-3, 220-pound Spitfires captain, who collapsed at his home and died en route to the Windsor Regional Hospital. The preliminary results were passed along to the RENAUD family, but medical officials said they may need months to determine the cause of death.
The Spitfires announced they were cancelling tomorrow night's home game against the Plymouth Whalers and that RENAUD's funeral service is scheduled for Friday at Saint Anne's Church in Tecumseh near Windsor, Ontario
Windsor head coach Bob BOUGHNER, a former Flames defenceman, said the players have been spending time together and with members of the local victim services.
"We spent a night at a billet's home with a dinner," BOUGHNER said. "We had a chapel service at the local high school. The kids have spent every moment together. They're going to dedicate the season to Mickey RENAUD."
While BOUGHNER was not with the Spitfires during the nasty DOWNIE / ALIU clash, he was aware of how RENAUD did all he could to pull together a fractured team.
"There were a lot of issues," BOUGHNER said. "Mickey was one of the players instrumental in befriending Akim and settling the whole thing. He was a guy who was always in the coaches' room, never about himself, always about a teammate. He made sure everyone was taken care of. He was a local hero."
The Spitfires will not appoint a captain to replace RENAUD. Every player in the league will wear a commemorative 18 sticker (RENAUD's number) on his helmet.
