Anders Börje Salming (“Börje Salming”)
Public Relations Ambassador, Sweden
Mr. Salming was born on April 17, 1951 in Kiruna, Sweden. Within his native Sweden, Börje Salming is fondly and respectfully nicknamed ‘The King’, is a well-respected citizen and a national hockey icon. Börje is of proud Sámi heritage, an indigenous Finno-Ugric people inhabiting Sápmi, which today encompasses large northern parts of Norway, Sweden, Finland and the Kola Peninsula within the Murmansk Oblast of Russia. The Sámi have historically been known in English as Laplanders.
Outside of Sweden, and in the ‘World of Hockey’, Börje is recognized as one of the National Hockey League’s (the “NHL”) dominating defensemen, having played for two ‘Original Six’ hockey teams – the Toronto Maple Leafs, from 1973 to 1989, and the Detroit Red Wings, from 1989 to 1990. Although not the first European to play in the NHL, Mr. Salming was arguably the most recognized European hockey ‘star’ to play in the NHL during his era. Mr. Salming was a trailblazer for Swedish-born hockey players, paving the way for generations of fellow Swede NHL players, and establishing Sweden as one of the world’s renowned breeding grounds of ‘hockey elite’. In 1996 Börje Salming was the first Sweden-trained NHL player inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame, and in 2017 he was named one of the 100 Greatest NHL Players in history.
