Another Red Wing Hockey legend Ted Lindsay passed away peacefully this morning at his home in Oakland, MI.  He was a persistent, courageous and determined man both on and off the ice.  He was a man of many First’s. We are comforted in knowing the Ted Lindsay legacy will forever be a part of history and the fact that so many lives have changed for the better because of the humanitarian work that he has done.
