Detroit Red Wings Legend Ted Lindsay Dies at 93
Ted Lindsay, a Hockey Hall of Famer and four-time Stanley Cup champion with the Detroit Red Wings, passed on at the age of 93.
Ted Lindsay was a member of the legendary "Production Line," Hockey Hall of Famer. He won the Stanley Cup four times with Detroit.
The legend passed on at the age of 93. Lindsay was reportedly under hospice care when he passed away last night.
Known as "Terrible Ted' for his ferocity on the ice, Lindsay won the Art Ross Trophy in 1950 as the top scorer in the NHL. He played in the NHL All-Star Game 11 consecutive times and was selected to the NHL First All-Star Team eight times. He also finished among the League's top three in goals four times and points six times.
He was known to be a gentleman and he was a philanthropist when off the ice. However, on the ice, Lindsay was cocky and abrasive.
“Ted never let fame go to his head,” said Joe Lapointe, a sports writer.
