The body of 20-year-old Saginaw Spirit player Terry Trafford has been found in Saginaw County more than a week after he went missing.
According to the Spirit's website, the Michigan State Police informed the team of Trafford's death early Tuesday evening.
A statement on their website reads, in part, "Our deepest condolences are with Terryâ??s family and his friends both in Ontario and Michigan. Terry played on our team and was a member of the Spirit family for the last four years and he will be missed."
Trafford's truck was spotted by a Michigan State Police trooper Tuesday afternoon in the parking lot of a Saginaw Township Walmart.
Trafford was last seen leaving the Dow Event Center at 9:30 a.m. Monday, March 3rd, after he was disciplined and sent home from the team for violating team rules.
The Spirit have postponed their game against Sault Ste. Marie that was scheduled to be played Wednesday at the Dow.
