Ted Lindsay[1] (born Robert Blake Theodore Lindsay; July 29, 1925 – March 4, 2019) was a Canadian professional ice hockey left winger. Lindsay played a career total of 17 seasons in the National Hockey League (NHL). He played for the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Black Hawks.

During his career, Lindsay was able to win the Stanley Cup four times and won the Art Ross Trophy once. He was nicknamed "Terrible Ted" because of his involvement in the creation of the National Hockey League Players' Association (NHLPA) and due to this he was traded to Chicago. He also served as the General Manager and Head coach of the Detroit Red Wings.

Lindsay was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1966.[2] His jersey number #7 was retired by the Red Wings on November 10, 1991.[3] In 1998, The Hockey News ranked Lindsay #21 on their list of 100 Greatest Hockey Players.[4]

Lindsay died on March 4, 2019 at his home in Oakland Charter Township, Michigan at the age of 93.[5]
