Former Detroit Red Wings defenseman Börje Salming is an absolute legend in Sweden. If you didn’t already realize that, just listen to what the most legendary defenseman ever to come out of Sweden has to say in praise of Salming.
On Wednesday, Hockey Hall of Famer Salming revealed that he has been diagnosed with ALS.
“Börje, I am thinking of you in this tough time,” Lidstrom told Sportbladet. “You have been my idol all these years and I know you will fight with all you can against this horrible disease as you fought on the ice. You have always been my role model.”
