Hockey Player
    (May 11, 1950- )
    Born in Nynäshamn, Sweden
    Forward for AIK (1967-74), Winnipeg Jets (1974-78) and the <9434New York Rangers (1978-83)
    World Hockey Association Playoff MVP (1976)
    He was suspended from the World Hockey Championships, after it was revealed he took steroids (1974).
    As a consequence for his actions, Sweden was forced to forfeit their 4-1 victory to Poland in that tournament.
    He missed the entire 1981-82 season as a result of injuries.
    His signing with the Rangers was considered one of the final nails in the coffin that cemented the demise of the World Hockey Association a year later.
    Despite being a top point producer with the Jets, he failed to live up to the billing with the Rangers.
    He got his foot caught in a crevice on the Madison Square Garden ice, at the same time he received a check from Denis Potvin, which prompted Ranger fans to chant 'Potvin Sucks' every time.
    He was amongst the first wave of Scandinavian players to pursue careers in North American ice hockey.
    He, along with Anders Hedberg and Bobby Hull formed a dominant scoring punch during the 1970's.
    He was considered one of the Jets' franchise greats during their tenure in the WHA.
    He held no ill will towards Denis Potvin and said the injuries he sustained were a result of the poor ice conditions at Madison Square Garden, and not the hit from Potvin.
    He guided the Jets to two Avco Cup titles (1976, 1978).
    He is the World Hockey Association's all-time leader in career assists per game.
    He was part of the inaugural class of inductees for the World Hockey Association Hall of Fame (2010).
