TORONTO (AP) - Former NHL defenseman Steve Montador has died at age 35.

Peel Region Police say Montador was found unconscious in his home in Mississauga, Ontario, early Sunday morning and was later pronounced dead. No foul play was suspected.

Montador made his NHL debut in 2001 with Calgary and played for six teams in parts of 10 seasons. The defenseman had 33 goals and 98 assists in 571 career games.

Montador had five goals and nine assists in 52 games with Chicago in his last NHL season. He suffered a concussion in February 2012 and played in just one game the rest of the year.
