He was assigned played with their top minor league affiliate, the Tulsa Oilers, in the CHL for the 1982–83 and 1983-84 seasons, where he won the Adams Cup. Following the collapse of the CHL, Renaud started the next season (1984–85) in the American Hockey League (AHL) with the Rochester Americans. On December 6, 1984, the Rangers traded Renaud and Dave Maloney to the Buffalo Sabers in exchange for Steve Patrick and Jim Wiemer. As a result of this mid-season trade, Renaud played the remainder the 1984-85 season in the AHL with the New Haven Nighthawks before retiring from professional hockey.
