Thanks for everything!
It is so tragic that Borje Salming now is gone. An icon and a legend we will never forget. All our thoughts to his family in this sad moment. RIP 21 you will for ever be missed but we will never forget you. Great as a player but even greater as a person.

Börje has recently struggled with his health. On August 10, 2022, he announced in a statement via the Toronto Maple Leafs that he had been diagnosed with ALS.
