Player Bio

Salem looked set for a productive season in 2016, having settled at half-back, but those plans were dashed early in the year. Having played the rst six games, Salem had a one-week layo due to concussion and was demoted to the VFL soon after. He was then sidelined for seven weeks after a thyroid problem resurfaced. The young defender rst su ered the health issue upon arriving at the club at the end of 2014, causing concern for the club’s medical department. The Demons got on top of the problem and Salem returned to play the nal game of the season where he acquitted himself well against Geelong. As soon as he nds continuity, Salem has the skills and the temperament to ourish at AFL level.

Draft history: 2013 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Melbourne) No. 9 overall.
