MODS: Feel free to change title if necessary. I just copied what was on the Sun's website, as that is all the info I had. I tried to change the title, but didn't have the option.

Thanks.

Someone needs to find that video he did on Sportsnet. One of the funniest segments I have ever seen. Wade Belak was awesome. He will be missed.

Belak was on the show last week. He spoke of the tragedy of Rypien and Boogaard. Said he felt great post career & was never concussed

That is what the sun had reported, you had it correct. The sun just needs some class.

For the record: Toronto police haven't officially released the identity of a body found at One King West this afternoon. Nor cause of death.
per twitter

Not confirmed, but since this does almost confirm a body was found. It's not looking too good.

I always really liked him as a player, and seemed like a guy everyone loved.

Damn it.

I met Belak in person, he is such a happy energetic guy. Not the type of person who would want to kill himself. Educated enough to know not to overdose on prescription drugs.
I sincerely hope this is not true..

If this is true, I am so sorry to hear about it.

Absolutely awful news.

What a tough offseason, RIP Wade.

One of my favourite Leafs, on the ice, off the ice he was such a fun and funny guy. So sad to hear this, and really - I hope that's it for players deaths this summer. This is #3 - and he NEVER struck me as being depressed or anything.

Sounds so weird. Seemed like a nice funny guy. A shame.

It's always the one you'd never expect.

The world isn't always sunshine and roses, fellas. I'm sure there are others in the NHL that feel that same way Belak did.

Re: Belak suicide reports. RT @bradyfan590: @felixpotvin Incorrect. Someone very close to Belak says that appears NOT to be the case.

If this is true... So sad. Belak was one of my favourite Leafs to watch, both on and off the ice.

Check in to the fan590, they're talking with Roenick about the story now.

Was just watching City Pulse and they confirmed it. I can't believe this. R.I.P Wade Belak

I'm just going to wait for a bit. I mean the most serious confirmation is the Toronto Sun who aren't that reliable, and at least some saying it's not true. I'll feel sad once it's absolutely confirmed.
