Former Calgary Flames tough guy Wade Belak was found dead in a Toronto hotel Wednesday.  The 35-year-old from Saskatoon was found in the 1 King West hotel and condo residence. 

Belak retired in March after a long NHL career that included stops in Calgary, Colorado, Toronto, Florida, and Nashville.

He was recently announced as one of the ex-NHLers who would be performing on CBC's Battle of the Blades this year.
