I'm sure this has been discussed elsewhere, but is there any chance they retire #37 or will the jersey patch be the extent of the honour for him?

I'm trying to think of the last few players to die tragically...Chiasson and Tertyshny are all I can think of, and neither of them had their numbers retired...but for a fledgling franchise like Atlanta maybe it would be a nice gesture, kind of how Bill Barilko was Toronto's first retired number (and one of only two along with Ace Bailey - the rest are "honoured" but still in use).
