ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Former Detroit Red Wings great Ted Lindsay will be in attendance to support the Ted Lindsay Foundation for Autism at tonight's (Thursday, Dec. 5) University of Michigan ice hockey game against the U.S. National Team Development Program Under-18 Team.
Lindsay will sign photographs of a recent visit with Michigan head coach Red Berenson from 6-7 p.m. in the concourse of Yost Ice Arena before the start of the 7 p.m. game, with all proceeds to benefit the Ted Lindsay Foundation for Autism. Lindsay came to Yost Ice Arena in October to address the hockey team at the start of the season.
In 2001, Lindsay established the Foundation with John Czarnecki to raise money to fund groundbreaking research on the cause and treatment of autism, raising more than $2 million dollars to date. All money raised goes directly toward ongoing autism research.
Lindsay was an eight-time first team NHL All-Star and four-time Stanley Cup champion during a 17-year NHL career with the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks. Lindsay was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1966. He is one of six players to have his number (No. 7) retired at Joe Louis Arena.
