Preds' Belak Declines Minor League Assignment

News: Belak, who cleared waivers Feb. 26, will work for the Predators in a broadcasting/business capacity instead of reporting to AHL Milwaukee, the Tennessean reports.

There has been no formal announcement regarding Belak's retirement, but this effectively brings his NHL playing career to a close, as his chances of returning to the ice next season appear remote at best.
