Wings to honor Delvecchio, Lindsay
DETROIT -- The Red Wings will honor two of their most esteemed alumni next month with Alex Delvecchio Night Thursday, October 16, and Ted Lindsay Night Saturday, October 18 at Joe Louis Arena. To commemorate Delvecchio and Lindsay’s countless contributions to hockey, the Red Wings will unveil specially commissioned statues of the players on their respective nights on the Joe Louis Arena concourse. The sculptures are commissioned by artist Omri R. Amrany, the creator of the Gordie Howe statue, which was unveiled in April of 2007.

Fans are asked to arrive early for on-ice presentations prior to the games as the Wings take on the Vancouver Canucks at 7:30 p.m. on Delvecchio Night and the New York Rangers at 7 p.m. on Lindsay Night. Delvecchio and Lindsay will each be presented with original artworks commissioned by artist David Arrigo. All fans in attendance on Oct. 16 will receive an 11x17 canvas replica of the Delvecchio artwork, sponsored by AT&T. Fans attending on Oct. 18 will be given a replica of the Lindsay artwork, sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield.

Delvecchio spent his entire NHL career as a member of the Red Wings from 1950-74, serving as team captain for 12 full seasons, surpassed in Wings' history only by Steve Yzerman.
Known as one of the true gentleman of the game, Delvecchio was the recipient of three Lady Byng Trophies for combining good sportsmanship with excellence on the ice.
Delvecchio, a three-time Stanley Cup champion was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1977. His No. 10 was retired by the Red Wings in 1991.

Lindsay, known as one of the greatest left wingers of all time, played for the Red Wings from 1944-57 and 1964-65. Known as a fierce competitor, Lindsay earned the nickname “Terrible Ted” and served on a line with Gordie Howe and Sid Abel (later Alex Delvecchio) dubbed “The Production Line”. A winner of four Stanley Cups, Lindsay appeared in 13 NHL All-Star games and set countless individual and league records. The Red Wings' legend was the recipient of the Art Ross Memorial Trophy (NHL leading scorer) in 1950 and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1966. His No. 7 is one of six numbers retired by the Red Wings.
