Snyder captained Attack for two years

OWEN SOUND, Ontario -- Dan Snyder's No. 14 was retired by
the Ontario Hockey League's Owen Sound Attack before their game
Friday night against the Saginaw Spirit.

Snyder died Oct. 5 of head injuries in a car accident with
Atlanta Thrashers teammate Dany Heatley. Snyder was 25.

Heatley has been charged with vehicular homicide in connection
with the accident. He broke his jaw and torn knee ligaments in the
accident and has yet to play for the Thrashers this season.

Snyder spent four years with Owen Sound, the last two as its
captain. He also was the club's nominee for OHL humanitarian of the
year.
