Former NHL-pro Peter Forsberg from Örnsöldsvik in northern Sweden, was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, Canada, on Tuesday morning.

In his induction speech, Forsberg - who is known as "Foppa" in Sweden - hailed his brother Roger, two years his elder, as his role model. "Roger was an even worse loser than I am. Not many card games, card decks or table games that survived the Roger loss," he said.

"Foppa" has won two Olympic Gold Medals and two World Cup gold medals for Sweden, and two Stanley Cups with Colorado Avalanche. He is number eight in the world when it comes to the average points earned per game (1,25).

Only two Swedes before him have been included in the Hockey Hall of Fame: Börje Salming (1996) and Mats Sundin (2012).
