Abstract [en]

In this paper, we explore the Canadian fitness advocate and coaching legend Lloyd Percival's fabled The Hockey Handbook, and its influence on player development and team strategy in Canada, Sweden and the former Soviet Union. Utilizing the notion of global 'scapes', as developed by Arjun Appaduari, to more fully understand the complexity of the global development of ice hockey, we argue that globalization of the game must be perceived as a multi-faceted interaction at both the global and local levels, i.e. as a critical binary relationship. According to the conventional, evangelistic narrative, Percival's instructional manual was responsible for the rise of ice hockey in Europe and the USSR. Our contrary argument is that the global cultural flow of The Hockey Handbook was a complex combination of factors related to the movement of capital, technologies, people, ideological considerations and mediated images. As such, it brings into question, the presumed status of The Hockey Handbook, as a dominant influence of the global hockey world. Rather, our argument suggests, it is a manufactured 'scape', serving to privilege a Canadian ice hockey system while relegating other 'narratives' and ice hockey systems to that of mere receivers.

Abstract [sv]

Den här artikeln handlar om tidigare Toronto Maple Leafs- och Team Sweden-stjärnan Börje Salming och hans roll som banbrytare för migrationen av svenska ishockeyspelare till den nordamerikanska hockeyligan NHL. På ett övergripande plan är syftet att belysa omvandlingen av den svenska (idrotts-) modellen kring millennieskiftet 2000. Utifrån ett omfattande arkivmaterial och mediekällor – inklusive föreningsprotokoll, tidningar, självbiografiska betraktelser och intervjuer – hävdas att Salmings enastående NHL-karriär inte bara banade väg för generationer av hans landsmän genom att punktera den nordamerikanska myten att skandinaviska spelare var mjuka och ömtåliga – en allmän uppfattning – men också bidrog till att omvandla den svenska nationalidentiteten och den hegemoniska ishockeymaskuliniteten. Teoretiskt bygger artikeln på medieforskaren Garry Whannels arbeten om mediesportstjärnor, och begreppet stardom som ”a form of social production in which the professional ideologies and production practices of the media aim to win and hold our attention by linking sporting achievement and personality in ways which have resonance in popular common sense”.

This paper deals with former Toronto Maple Leafs and Team Sweden great Börje Salm- ing’s role as a trailblazer for the migration of Swedish ice hockey players to the NHL. Ultimately, the aim is to shed light on the transformation of the Swedish (sports) model at the turn of the 21st century. Drawing on a wide range of archival material and media sources – including club records, newspapers, autobiographical accounts and interviews – it is argued that Salming’s stellar NHL-career not only paved the way for generations of his countrymen by working to dispel the North American myth that Scandinavian play- ers were soft and fragile, as it is commonly asserted, but helped transform the Swedish national identity and hegemonic ice hockey masculinity as well. Theoretically, the paper is grounded in media researcher Garry Whannel’s work on media sport stars, and the no- tion of stardom as “a form of social production in which the professional ideologies and production practices of the media aim to win and hold our attention by linking sporting achievement and personality in ways which have resonance in popular common sense”.

Note

A comprehensive look at the 1972 Canada-USSR Hockey series and the way that Canadian mythology has been built around it, including essays on topics such as the impact of the summit series on the development of women's hockey, an analysis of media perspectives from the series and how the summit series helped to form Canada's identity abroad. This collection will be written in accessible prose, allowing it to read and enjoyed by a devotee of the game who is not an academic.
