Tommy Salo Blew Classic Goalie Number in BAC

Tommy Salo wore 35 for the Islers, Oilers, and Sweden, fell just short of his own goalie number, but still hit the Brodeur Threshold by blowing a RIDICULOUS .30 BAC.

That’s 15 times the Swedish legal limit (.02) and almost 4 times higher than New York limit (.08). He must have consumed at least Eric Lindros amount of beers.

At that this level, “You likely have no comprehension of where you are or what you are doing.” At .35, you’re basically on medical grade anesthesia you’re so fucked up.

Salo got obliterated back in August 2020 and apparently just went to sleep on the highway. In addition to causing a huge traffic jam, Salo also got sentenced to 2 months in prison following a guilty conviction for aggravated drunk driving. His lawyers will appeal.

Note: I’m assuming this Reddit user’s translation from Swedish is corrrect: https://www.reddit.com/r/hockey/comments/l187gn/tommy_salo_formerly_of_the_islanders_oilers/. Thanks u/jabask!.
