September's launch of the Toronto Maple Leafs 'Legends Row', a monument to honour some of the greatest players in team history, saw two centremen inducted in Darryl Sittler and Ted Kennedy alongside goaltender Johnny Bower. Today the team announced that the man many view as the best defensemen in team history, Borje Salming, would be the fourth statue added in September, 2015.

Salming spent 16 seasons in a Maple Leaf sweater where his strong two-way play put him among the elite defencemen in the game and made him one of the most popular players in team history. After being discovered playing in Sweden by scout Gerry McNamara, Salming joined Toronto in 1973 and made an immediate impact, earning NHL Second All-Star Team honours in his sophomore season before going on to a Hall of Fame career.
