The Ted Lindsay Award commemorates one hell of a Red Wing

Most Red Wings fans don’t need to be told who Ted Lindsay is, but ESPN’s Sarah Goldstein believes that it’s important for fans to know the name between the NHLPA’s member-voted MVP trophy, the Ted Lindsay Award. Especially given the fact that Lindsay was instrumental in the eventual founding of the NHLPA, this is a particularly well-timed article: Playing for the St. Michael’s...
