  • RIP Ted Lindsay

    https://www.tsn.ca/red-wings-legend-...t-93-1.1267488

    Hockey Hall of famer, Detroit Red Wings legend, and the main mover and shaker behind the creation of the first incarnation of the NHLPA in the 1950's died today at age 93. He was a key member of the fantastic Red Wings teams of the late 40's and early 50's as a linemate to Gordie Howe.

    One of the nicest people I have ever met.

    When you go to one of those autograph shows you never know what to expect, Ted Lindsay made you feel like a friend, he would have told me a story about every player I asked about.

    Such a good man.

    Condolences to his family and friends.

      Watching the Sunday NBC NHL telecasts in the early 1970’s, Ted Lindsay was largely responsible for my developing an understanding of and appreciation for the game of ice hockey as a child.

      RIP, Ted.

        Many of those “wrinkles” on the face of the aging Lindsay were not wrinkles at all. They were scars. He was one very tough guy who, maybe because of his 5’8” stature, had a career of brawling and battling every time he took the ice. Sorry to hear of his passing.

        I just came across this nice piece on him.
