Red Wings to honor Ted Lindsay
DETROIT -- The Red Wings will honor esteemed alumnus Ted Lindsay on Saturday, October 18 with Ted Lindsay Night at Joe Louis Arena. To commemorate Lindsay’s outstanding hockey career, the Wings will unveil an original statue commissioned by artist Omri Amrany on the Joe Louis Arena concourse. The statue will be debuted in a private dedication prior to doors opening at 5:30 p.m.

Fans are asked to arrive early for a special on-ice presentation prior to the puck drop as the Wings take on the New York Rangers at 7 p.m. EDT. Lindsay will be presented with an original artwork commissioned by artist David Arrigo. All fans in attendance at the legend's night will receive an 11x17 canvas replica of the Lindsay artwork, sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield.

Ted 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 of “Terrible Ted” and served on a line with Gordie Howe and Sid Abel (and 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. Lindsay is set to accept the NHL’s Lester Patrick Award for outstanding service to hockey in the U.S. next week in St. Paul, Minnesota.

The Red Wings icon currently resides in metro Detroit and is an honored member of the Detroit Red Wings Alumni Association and is active with the Ted Lindsay Foundation to battle autism.

Lindsay’s No. 7 is one of six numbers retired by the Red Wings.

Lindsay’s statue was commissioned by Chicago-based artist Omri Amrany, the same artist who created the Gordie Howe statue unveiled at Joe Louis Arena in April 2007 and the Alex Delvecchio statue on Oct. 16, 2008. Amrany also crafted the six stainless steel Detroit Tigers Hall of Fame Players on display at Comerica Park in 2000. Well-know for his Michael Jordan statue outside the United Center, Amrany crafted the 7 ½-foot Lindsay statue using new metal alloys combined with white bronze and glass.

David Arrigo, artist of the Lindsay canvas artwork, has done numerous works for a variety of sports organizations, including the NFL, NHL, MLB and NASCAR. Known best for Live Mural Experiences, Arrigo has been commissioned to complete unique works across the globe. To learn more about Arrigo’s pieces, visit www.davidarrigo.com.
