Former Swedish hockey player Börje Salming Source: Profimedia TORONTO – Former Swedish hockey player Börje Salming was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). His official statement was brought by the Toronto Maple Leafs club, for which he played the majority of his career in 1973-1989. “I received news that shook my family and me. The signs that indicated something was wrong in my body turned out to be ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. In an instant, everything changed. I don’t know what they will be the next few days, but I understand that there will be greater challenges than anything I have ever faced. I also realize that there is no cure, but there are many trials going on worldwide, and one day there will be a cure. For now, there are treatments available to slow the progression. I and and my family will continue to think positively,” said 71-year-old Salming. ALS is a very progressive neuromuscular disease in which the patient gradually loses control over all the muscles in the body. For example, British physicist Stephen Hawking, former Czech Prime Minister Stanislav Gross or Slovak footballer Marián Čišovský suffered from it. Today, Maple Leafs great Börje Salming shared a statement (below) on his health. The Toronto Maple Leafs and all their fans around the world are sending you their love and support, Börje. — Toronto Maple Leafs (@MapleLeafs) August 10, 2022 The legendary defenseman asked the public and media to respect their privacy. “I understand that there are many of you who would like to reach out to us, but I ask that you respect our privacy during these difficult times. When the time is right and I understand more about my condition, I will speak up. I hope you understand our decision and will respect him.” In an official statement, the Maple Leafs also quoted Salming’s doctor, Caroline Ingre, who runs a specialized clinic and reminded that ALS is a disease that affects not only muscles, but can also affect personality and cognitive functions. People affected by this disease experience progressive muscle weakness. In approximately 70 percent of diagnoses, the disease begins with symptoms from the spinal cord, but also with muscle weakness. They gradually weaken the patient’s arms and legs, often also the muscles of the mouth and throat, which leads to unintelligible speech and difficulty swallowing. These patients also often have an associated emotional impact that manifests as uncontrollable laughing or crying. The first Swede to be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame Salming is the first Swede (and the second European) to be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. At the same time, he was the first European to become a real profiliga star. He made it to the NHL’s first all-star team once, and to the second team five times. In the NHL regular season, he played a total of 1148 games, in which he collected 787 Canadian points (150+637) and 170 “pluses.” He scored 12 goals and 37 assists in 81 playoff games. Four times he was among the three finalists for the Norris trophy for the best defender of the competition, but he never won it. He has one silver and one bronze from the World Championships. He has been a member of the HHOF since 1996, and was subsequently accepted into the Hall of Fame of the International Hockey Federation.
