BREAKING NEWS: Wade Belak Found Dead in Toronto Condo


-----


The Calgary Sun (@calgarysun) broke news via Twitter at 4:25 CST today that “Wade Belak has been found dead in a downtown Toronto condo”.

Belak, a former Toronto Maple Leaf, Calgary Flame, Florida Panther, and Colorado Avalanche, was supposed to be on Battle of the Blades on CBC this year.

He spent the latter half of last season in the broadcasting booth with Tom Callahan, Nashville’s Radio Play-by-Play man (@predsradio on Twitter). Currently, being retired, he was set to have his own radio show on Monday evenings on 102.5 The Game in Nashville along with doing more broadcasting work with the team.

Belak was 35 years old. He leaves behind a wife and 2 daughters (5 and 7)

——————-

In a summer where Rick Rypien and Derek Boogard were both found dead, you can’t believe this can happen to the players you root for. As a Predators fan, and of hockey in general, this is the most unreal news that you can even imagine to hear.

Belak is one of the kindest men you will ever meet, and extremely funny to boot. You see these players on the ice and then get a chance to meet them in person, even joke around with them for a little while when they are lounging around in the upper concourse of the Bridgestone Arena, then you hear this news?

Amazingly unreal…..that’s really the only thing you can say. I’ve had the pleasure of watching Belak play, spending some time chatting it up with Belak, and getting multiple chance to meet him. Plus, I believe I am one of the few that actually own a Belak jersey-shirt.

It hurts to write this article, it really does. I’m really at a loss for words

More news to come as it’s reported……..

UPDATE:

This statement came from the Nashville Predators organization -

“The entire Nashville Predators organization and family is shocked and saddened by the sudden and untimely passing of Wade Belak. Wade was a beloved member of the organization, a terrific teammate and wonderful father and husband who will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Jennifer and children Andie and Alex. We offer our full support to them at this very difficult time.”
