Salo Retires From Hockey

via Eurohockey,

When Tommy Salo’s club Frölunda Indians surprisingly missed the playoffs Salo announced that it was the end of his goalie career. A career that gave gold in both in the Olympics and World Championships, he also played in 526 NHL games. The highlight of his career was perhaps when he saved Paul Kariya’s penalty shot in the Olympics 1994, a save that gave Sweden the gold medals. But despite his succesful career he will probably be most remembered for the dreadful and unfortunate mistake he made in the 2002 Olympics when Belarus eliminated Sweden in the quarter finals.
