Former NHL player Steven Montador was found dead inside his Mississauga home early Sunday morning, according to Peel Regional Police.
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.
