Daniel Sedin also talked about the first time he met Salming at home in Sweden.

- I couldn't take my eyes off him.

I could hardly shoot, I just looked at him, says the 42-year-old.

This weekend, Börje Salming was celebrated in Toronto when he stepped onto the ice together with his family.

Last summer, the 71-year-old was diagnosed with ALS and is now fighting the disease.
