Ex-Leafs star Salming diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease

TORONTO (AP) Former Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Borje Salming has been diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease, the team announced Wednesday.

"I have received news that has shaken my family and me," Salming said in a statement. "In an instant, everything changed."

Salming, who played 16 seasons with the Leafs (1973-1989) and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1996, said he recognizes that there is no cure for the disease but says there are treatments available to slow the progression.
