Hockey legend to lie in state Friday - BlackburnNews.comWednesday, March 27, 2019
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

Clark Davey, 1928-2019: 'The true journalist of journalists' - Ottawa CitizenWednesday, March 27, 2019
He was heartbroken after failing his medical, but an English teacher told him that people would pay him to write. So he enrolled in the first journalism degree course taught at University of Western Ontario, graduating in 1948 and joining the newsroom of the Chatham Daily News.There, he worked under Richard "Dic" Doyle, but moved to Kirkland Lake when the Thomson newspaper chain made him editor-in-chief of the Northern Daily News. His time there was brief, however, as his girlfriend, Joyce Gordon, issued him an ultimatum: Northern Ontario or me. He chose her: they married in September 1952.In the meantime, he joined the newsroom of the Globe and Mail, where his mentor Doyle had been working for a year.As a reporter with the Globe, Davey covered national and international affairs, including the Suez Canal crisis, the St. Lawrence Seaway project and the cancellation of the Avro Arrow program. During the 1957 federal election campaign, he recognized that Tory leader John Diefenbaker was gaining momentum and might actually win, and convinced his editors to allow him to stay with the Chief's campaign for 40 days.

When Doyle became editor of the Globe in 1963, he chose Davey as his managing editor, and, according to Mills, the two raised the broadsheet's reputation from that of a local paper to a national one. Davey was managing editor for 15 years before joining the Vancouver Sun in 1978. He was publisher there until 1983, when he took over at the Gazette. He was publisher of the Citizen from 1989 to 1993. He was also president and chair of The Canadian Press, and co-founder and president of the Michener Awards Foundation that oversees the country's most prestigious journalism prize."He was the true journalist of journalists," says Kim Kierans, journalism professor at University of King's College in Halifax and Michener Foundation board member. "He told me when I last saw him in November, ‘If we're not providing the encouragement for journalism organizations and journalists within them to do the journalism that matters, then we're in trouble as a democracy.'"He was also a lovely man, smart and sparkling … with incredible enthusiasm for the business and its future."According to Mills, Davey, who in 2002 led a protest on the steps of the Ottawa Citizen after Mills was fired for running an editorial critical of then-prime minister Jean Chrétien, was known as tough and gruff, "but deep down he was a really kind and thoughtful person, and a very good friend who was always fair to people. But if you didn't know him, he could be intimidating."And although he called the shots on the job, it was Joyce who ruled the home roost. According to son Ric, his father only stopped the presses twice - once while at the Globe, when Joyce called him to report that she and Ric thought they had just seen a UFO."That was the kind of pull she had over him," says Ric.Clark Davey is survived by his wife, Joyce; brother Kenneth George; children Ric (Rita Celli), Kevin (Margaret) and Clark Jr. (...
