WINDSOR, Ont. - A funeral for former NHL forward Bob Probert will be held in Windsor, Ont., on Friday.

An autopsy was conducted Tuesday and foul play is not suspected, according to a release from the Ontario Provincial Police's Essex County detachment. Autopsy results were not released.

Probert played for the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks over his 16-year career.

His funeral is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. ET Friday at the Windsor Christian Fellowship church.
