Wiki doesn't confirm anything, it just means someone in this thread figured out how to update wikipedia.

Although reports are starting to surface, that's no source. There's no source linked to that statement on the wiki page.

Besides wikipedia, if Belak actually did commit suicide, it wouldn't have been announced right away. There is no way they would know. It would just have been "Belak found dead". Not "killed himself" (which in and of itself is a crass way to put it)

Comeon, not wade! Not another one! This just makes me angry.

Can you please change the title of the thread! If true, it's much too blunt and very disrespectful.

Exactly. No way they could determine one way or another this soon that he had commited suicide, let alone announce it.

Hopefully this is untrue Belak is a great guy.

You were one of the most entertaining hockey players to watch and you could scrap with any player in the NHL, and muck his barn
We'll miss you buddy. Thanks for your time as a Leaf ♥

Yup, this is truly out of the blue. He had so much planned I don't know why this happened.

Please tell me this is a rumour. Wade was one of my favorite Leafs during his time with the Buds.
