Stan Mikita, Blackhawks, and Ted Lindsay, Red Wings, compete for the puck during a game in Chicago, February 24, 1965.
The former striking star of the Detroit Red Wings, Ted Lindsay died at the age of 93 years.
The news was confirmed by the son-in-law of the former player. He has made the soul in a shelter from the Detroit area.
Born in Renfrew, west of Ottawa, in 1925, Ted Lindsay has spent 14 of his 17 seasons in the national hockey League (NHL) with the Red Wings and the other three with the Chicago black hawks. In Detroit, he won the Stanley Cup four times during the 1950s.
He was admitted to the Temple of the hockey hall of fame in 1966. His bib number 7 has been retired by the Red Wings in 1991.
Hockey fans in the 1940s and 1950s will remember the fierce rivalry that pitted Ted Lindsay to the star of the Montreal Canadiens, Maurice Richard.
