Former NHL defenseman Steve Montador (35), who spent a season at Croatian club Medveščak, has been found dead inside his home in Mississauga…
Police said a female friend woke up at 2 a.m. to find Montador deceased. She contacted police and he was pronounced dead just after 2:30 a.m. at his residence.
“Foul play is not suspected, pending the outcome of an autopsy,” said Const. Fiona Thivierge, a Peel police spokesperson.
At this time, Thivierge said, the incident is being treated as a sudden death investigation, not a criminal investigation – reported Mississauga News.
Montador played a total of 571 NHL games and spent his last pro season with Zagreb’s Medveščak in 2013/2014 in the Kontinental Hockey League where he appeared 11 times. He played in the NHL with Calgary, Florida, Anaheim, Boston, Buffalo and Chicago. (photo / wikimedia)
