Very nice move by the Spitfires.

Great news, and a classy move by the Spitfires.

Thanks for the heads up, Hyde.

definitely a classy move... but I'm pretty sure at the time of his passing they announced no one would ever wear his number again

Tonight, Renaud's No. 18 jersey will be raised to the rafters at Windsor Arena and retired prior to the home opener against the Sarnia Sting.

The ceremony is set to begin at 7:21 p.m. with the game to follow at about 7:55 p.m.

His game jersey still hangs in his locker in the team's dressing room at Windsor Arena and the Spitfires wear his No. 18 on their jerseys in his honour.

The club's 2008-09 track suits still carry a black puck with the No. 18 on the back.

When the Spitfires hit the road to open the season Friday in Sarnia, the lantern used to symbolize Renaud's spirit was placed in a seat at the back of the bus and lit in the dressing room.

"That's something the players decided and we left it in their hands, but I'm glad they did," Spitfires head coach Bob Boughner said.

Quote:
For the first time since his death, all of Renaud's family is expected to be in attendance.

His mother Jane's group Music Express will sing the national anthem while his dad Mark will address the crowd during the half-hour ceremony. His brother Remy and sister Penny are also expected to attend.

"It won't be easy," Boughner said. "But the community and the fans have expressed a need to see it go up.

"Mickey's a big part of why the team is where it is today (ranked first in the CHL) and a big part of what we do this year. He's still a presence every day."

I wish I was able to watch this.

R.I.P. Mickey.
