The debate of who is the greatest Swedish-born hockey player will always bring a long debate between Börje Salming, Nicklas Lindström, and Peter Forsberg. Older Swedes will always lean toward Börje while most North Americans will lean towards Lindström cause of all his success in the NHL, but anytime this topic of conversation comes up in locker rooms and sports bars across Sweden the consensus pick is Peter The Great. A major factor for his winning this discussion is his 2nd shootout goal from the 1994 Olympics to bring home the first-ever Gold Medal for Sweden.
This week Spittin' Chiclets secured an interview with the Swedish Legend are you'll be surprised to hear what he had to say about this famous move that landed him on a stamp in Sweden.
Hearing from him on all things hockey and life were amazing but $EBR needed to make some cash from this interview so we put together a Chiclets Special on The Scorebet in Ontario, including another great Swedish forward, William Nylander. His empty-net goal secured the win for the Leafs and the bag for the $EBR.
The Leafs play today at 2 pm EST. and we will ride the same Swedish theme again!
