man... I guess we sit here and hope some mistake has been made but that's what the little ticker on the Sun says no doubt.

Belak kills himself sounds bogus....Belak found dead sounds more legit. I call prank. The sun is untrustworthy

I've been looking around online and can't find any other news source reporting on this.

Might just be typical Toronto Sun reporting without confirming facts first...

Take it at face value until there are some credible news reports...

Really do not want to believe this, it does say reportedly so there's chances for mistake.

If true, he truly one of the memorable players and a great person. Rest in peace.

Yeah I just can see a headline reading that way. It definitely would say something like has been found dead or found dead in a potential suicide police are still investigating. To just come out and say he killed himself is brutal. Unless he did it in front of them which I'm sure wasn't the case they should really approach this kind of stuff with caution.

I will only believe it when someone other than the sun reports it.

Here it is though:



Note: This is extremely amateurish of them.

Former Toronto Maple Leafs tough guy Wade Belak was found dead in a Toronto hotel Wednesday.

The 35-year-old from Saskatoon was found in the tony 1 King West hotel and condo residence.

Belak retired in March after a long NHL career that included stops in Colorado, Calgary, Toronto, Florida and Nashville. He was recently announced as one of the ex-NHLers who would be performing on CBC's Battle of the Blades this year.

Belak is the third NHL enforcer to die in the last four months.

Derek Boogard of the New York Rangers was found dead May 13 in Minneapolis.

The 28-year-old's death was ruled to be due to an accidental overdose of presciption drugs.

Just over two weeks ago, Winnipeg Jets forward Rick Rypien committed suicide in his home in Crowsnest Pass, Alta. It came to light the 27-year-old had battled depression for more than a decade.

Cmon guys, let's get a reputable source. Wikipedia is not a reputable source.
