MUST SEE: Tributes from around the NHL for Ted Lindsay

Detroit Red Wings legend Ted Lindsay passed away earlier this week at the age of 93. He won four Stanley Cup championships playing alongside fellow legends Gordie Howe and Sid Abel and also helped to form the NHLPA in the 1950’s. Additionally, he started the tradition of raising the Stanley Cup over his head and skating it around the ice.

All throughout the NHL, teams have paid tribute to Lindsay – take a look at a few of them.

The impact that Ted Lindsay made on the hockey world will last forever, and players past, present and future will be forever indebted to his contributions to the game.

Chris Ilitch mum on potential Steve Yzerman reuinion

Ever since it was announced that Steve Yzerman was stepping down as general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning despite having one year on his contract left, speculation has run rampant that a return to the Detroit Red Wings was in the works. He is still with the Lightning as an advisor.

Yzerman still maintains a home in the metro-Detroit area, and his family remained here even as he worked in Florida. Meanwhile, current general manager Ken Holland still has one year remaining on a two-year pact he agreed to this past offseason.

While discussing the Detroit Tigers on Saturday, Tigers chairman and CEO Chris Ilitch was asked about the potential return of Yzerman. However, he kept things simple when asked if he’s reached out to the former captain.

“No, we have not done that,” Ilitch responded. “He is under contract and we generally have a rule within our organization not talking about executives or others who are under contract with another organization.”

“There’s not a lot I can say about that other than I know his contract is expiring this summer, and leave it at that.”
