Just a tragedy that's for sure. Great guy, always able to make you laugh, just hard to believe. This has been a pretty bad summer in a lot of ways, but this has been the worst of it by a mile.

Not everyone wears their heart on their sleeve. RIP Belak, so sad for his family.

RIP Wade and condolences to the family.

Does anybody have tickets for opening night? If so, please start a BELAK BELAK BELAK chant.

Yes!

I really think this needs to be done. Maybe some signs too. A guy like Belak who represented Toronto so respectfully throughout his time as a Leaf really I think needs to be remembered.

Made during the 2007 season with the Leafs.

This video is downright heartbreaking to watch now. Such a beautiful family, and you can see there is so much love there too.

RIP Belak. Sorely loved, sorely missed. We lost not just a beloved former enforcer, but a wonderful human being.

Belak killed himself, according to sources.

Toronto Police refused comment after being called to the condo at 1 King St. W., where a man's body was found.

Belak, 35, who was just signed on for the popular Battle of the Blades reality TV show, was found dead around 1:33 p.m., the source said.

He hanged himself, according to a source.

I just wanted to come by here and represent Nashville with a comment on how awesome Belak was as a person. He will be missed by all who met him.
