| | former enforcer wade belak found dead
Retired National Hockey League player Wade Belak was found dead in a downtown Toronto hotel and condominium complex on Wednesday. A source with the Nashville Predators, Belak’s last NHL team, confirmed the news late Wednesday afternoon. |
Belak was 35.
The cause of death was not immediately known.
Officers from 52 Division responded to a call around 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon and found a man dead on the scene. That man was identified as Belak. A police forensics unit was still on the scene late Wednesday afternoon, but foul play was not suspected.
Belak retired after 15 seasons spent as an enforcer, a career that involved stops with the Colorado Avalanche, the Calgary Flames, the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Florida Panthers and the Nashville Predators. He had recently been named as a cast member for the third season of the CBC’s “Battle of the Blades,” and was preparing for a new job as a television analyst with the Predators.
