Happy Birthday King
Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae.
One of the all time great Leafs is celebrating a birthday today - a true pioneer in the NHL. Salming paved the way for Europeans in the NHL - the Jackie Robinson of hockey.
1148 games played, 150 goals, 637 assists, 1344 penalty minutes
81 games played, 12 goals, 37 assists, 91 penalty minutes
Salming was as talented and tough as anyone in the NHL - a favourite of Leaf Nation.
That's all for today - NHL playoffs underway, we'll start picking games this weekend.
Thanks for taking the time to check in.
Hazel, here's hoping things are groovy in your world.
