Hockey Player Börje Salming | West End Phoenix

I drew a hockey player! Now I finally feel fully Canadian. The Maple Leaf’s Börje Salming for West End Phoenix complete with his impressive injury. In 1986 the skate blade of Detroit’s Gerard Gallant inadvertently cut the future Hall of Famer’s face while he was lying on the ice in front of the Leafs goal. He needed 200 stitches to close the wound. Yikes. Really like how this ended up looking like a retro hockey poster. Thanks for the great inspiration Dave Bidini!
