Monday morning, Sportsnet’s Jeff Marek reported that Hockey Hall of Famer and Detroit Red Wings legend Ted Lindsay passed away at the age of 93. Lindsay had been in hospice care and died overnight.
During his 17-year NHL career, Lindsay scored 851 points and won the Stanley Cup four times with the Detroit Red Wings. He also racked up 1,423 penalty minutes during his career with the Red Wings earning him the nickname “Terrible Ted”. He was the last surviving member of the famed “Production Line” with Sid Abel and right wing Gordie Howe.
Tributes to Lindsay are pouring in on social media. Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin was one of the first players to share his condolences before practice Monday.
