SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) - A Tuesday funeral is planned in Toronto for 20-year-old Saginaw Spirit major junior hockey player Terry Trafford.

Ward Funeral Home says visitation is Sunday and Monday in Toronto.

Saginaw Spirit President Craig Goslin tells The Saginaw News (http://bit.ly/1gpOAyp ) the team plans to travel to the visitation Sunday.

Police have said Trafford died of self-inflicted asphyxiation inside his car parked outside a Wal-Mart store in Michigan. The Toronto native’s body was found March 12. He disappeared eight days earlier after receiving discipline from the club.

The Ontario Hockey League team says its home game with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds that was postponed from Wednesday because of Trafford’s death will take place Monday, ending its regular season.

Saginaw visits the Greyhounds in Ontario on Friday, then Saturday hosts the London Knights.
