From My Garage, #2: Tomas Sandstrom

Continuing to unpack the old Upper Deck cards, here's my favorite King of the Gretzky era.

Here's one demonstrating why he would have been a Dean Lombardi type of player:

A Swede born in Finland. Interesting.

A search of youtube for Sandstrom clips reveals a theme. Dave Brown Cross Checks Tomas Sandstrom in the face, Ron Hextall Nails Tomas Sandstrom, Ken Linesman Spears Thomas Sandstrom, Pat Verbeek Slashes Tomas SandstromAnderson suckerpunches Sandstrom 89-90. 

What could Sandstrom be up to that would cause so many people (several of them famous dickheads) to get so pissed at him? Sadly, there aren't any clips of Sandstrom's 45 goal season (or any Sandstrom at all, that i can see, except in the Cup Run video) on the Kings site. That's terrible.

Here's Sandstrom scoring the goal of the week for the Pens, and another clip from a couple of years ago, off ice:

I don't know why the embedded stats don't have the totals. Here they are (playoffs in parentheses):

983 games (139)

394 goals (32)

463 assists (49)

857 points (81)

1193 PIM (183)
