Apparently it does but it's not like this guy didn't earn several millions of dollars as an NHL player. Plus all indications are that he'd be able to make a comfortable living with his affable personality and charm.

Will the Belak family, like the Proberts and Boogaards, consent to donating Wade's brain to Boston University for CTE research?

This is just an incredibly sad day for me as a fan of Wade.

Wade has been my favourite player since I started following hockey in 2001. I'm a proud owner of a Belak #2 Leafs jersey, #33 Panthers jersey and a #3 Preds jersey.

Hopefully you can get that 30 goal, 40 assist, 100 point season in the next life.

Goodbye, Wade.

according to Jeff Marek, Belak told him a month ago that he had never had a single concussion.

I used to work as a life & health insurance underwriter, so let me shed some light on this.

A suicide exclusion clause is typical on insurance policies. That means that the policy doesn't pay if the cause of death is suicide. This is to protect the insurance company from people who premeditate suicide and then buy a policy just before they actually do it. Otherwise many suicidal people would purchase a policy and commit suicide after the first premium payment so that their family could benefit from their death.

The suicide exclusion clause no longer applies after a stipulated period (typically a couple of years), however. The idea is that if someone buys life insurance and decides 5 or 10 years later to commit suicide, then the insurance wasn't bought with suicide in mind. There was no intended abuse of insurance when the insurance contract was entered into.

I suspect that Wade had life insurance for a long time before his death (group life through the NHLPA and perhaps some private insurance also).

As many others have said, RIP Wade. We don't understand what led you to this. I wish someone could have helped you.

He says it in this recent interview.

"I was fortunate to have never gotten a concussion."

Doggone shame.

Farewell, amiable clod with golden heart.

It is broadcasting's loss.

RIP

He had something like 130 career fights. And there's evidence to suggest that CTE can be caused by damage from the cumulative effects of repeated sub-concussive blows to the head.

I know this is probably a bad time to ask, but are they going to cancel the Battle of the Blades show in respect for Belak.

When you spend a good portion of your life getting punched in the head, things happen in your brain that I don't think we totally comprehend yet.

This is one fight I will always remember, after that Janssen hit on Kaberle Belak steps up to the plate to fight Janssen for revenge 2 weeks later when they played again.

Turn to 40 seconds in for goosebump chants BELAK BELAK!



Same fight just Joe Bowen as the announcer
