Hockey legend to lie in state Friday - BlackburnNews.comWednesday, March 27, 2019
Lindsay will be remembered in a requiem Mass on Saturday morning at St. Andrew’s Church in Rochester. The funeral is closed to the general public, with the family and Red Wings asking fans to respect the family’s privacy and only attend the public event Friday. In lieu of flowers, contributions are being sought to support the Ted Lindsay Foundation.
Lindsay was born in 1925 in Renfrew, Ontario and played junior hockey for the Oshawa Generals, winning the 1944 Memorial Cup. He soon signed with the Red Wings, where he would eventually join Gordie Howe and Sid Abel as part of the famed Production Line, feared by opponents throughout the 1950s. Nicknamed “Terrible Ted” and hated by opposing fans for his tough, aggressive style of play, he compiled 1,808 penalty minutes. Lindsay scored goals over 17 seasons, 14 with Detroit and three with the Chicago Blackhawks.
He won the Art Ross Trophy as the league’s top scorer in 1950 and had his name engraved on the Stanley Cup four times. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1966.
During his career, Lindsay became involved in an effort to form an NHL player’s association, to ensure higher salaries and a pension plan. The movement had widespread support from players but was opposed by team owners and general managers like Detroit’s Jack Adams, who stripped Lindsay of his captaincy and traded him to struggling Chicago. For his original efforts, the NHL renamed their Lester Pearson Award after Lindsay. A 1995 TV film, Net Worth, chronicled Lindsay’s activism.
Lindsay later worked as a TV commentator, doing play-by-play on local television for the New York Rangers, then analysis for NBC. He was the centre of one of the few bright spots of the so-called “Dead Wings” era of the 1970s and early 1980s. He became the Wings’ general manager in 1977, and the following season Detroit made the playoffs for the first time since 1969. He also served as head coach of the Wings at the start of the 1980-81 season.
The NHL is also joining the Red Wings in tribute to Lindsay. For games played through Sunday, all 31 NHL arenas will display Lindsay’s #7 on their arena boards.
From March 7th through March 10th, rink boards in all 31 NHL arenas will feature this tribute to Ted Lindsay in honor of his incredible career, trailblazing spirit and love of the game. #RIP7 @NHLPA @TedLindsay07 pic.twitter.com/YFMffwxKxw

No applicants yet for public seats on Nova Scotia funeral board - Cape Breton PostWednesday, March 27, 2019
SYDNEY, N.S. -
Anyone upset over what's happening in the funeral industry in Nova Scotia now has an opportunity to pull up a chair and do something about it.
For the first time, the Nova Scotia Board of Registration of Embalmers and Funeral Directors is offering two board seats to public advocates not connected to the funeral industry, measures taken following a bizarre and emotional mix up at a Nova Scotia funeral home last year.
"That way the public can get involved in enforcement actions when they need to be taken by the board as we'd have the consumer advocate perspective as well," said Rodger Gregg, registrar of cemetery and funeral services in Nova Scotia.
However, Gregg said, his concern is that no one has applied for the positions and the positions start in June.
"Right now, we haven't received any applicants for these positions," he said.
"For us it's a great opportunity for there now to be consumer representation on the board to represent the consumer's interest."
The board previously consisted of just the registrar and five othe...
