COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The minor league player from the Columbus Blue Jackets' organization who was found dead this weekend
committed suicide, police said Tuesday.
Trevor Ettinger, 23, was discovered at his parents' home in
Upper Kennetcook outside Halifax, Nova Scotia, by police responding
to a 911 call Saturday.
"I can confirm that he died as a result of suicide,'' said
Michelle Raoul Winters, spokeswoman for the Royal Canadian Mounted
Police in Nova Scotia. "We have determined that there was no foul
play, and the case has been closed.''
She would not release any more details.
Ettinger, a 6-foot-5, 240-pound left wing, split the past two
seasons between Syracuse of the American Hockey League and Dayton
of the East Coast Hockey League.
