RED WINGS AND LINDSAY FAMILY TO HOLD PUBLIC VISITATION FOR TED LINDSAY AT LITTLE CAESARS ARENA ON FRIDAY, MARCH 8
The Detroit Red Wings and the Lindsay Family will hold a public visitation for Ted Lindsay on Friday, March 8 on the covered ice at Little Caesars Arena from 9:07 a.m. to 7:07 p.m., honoring the iconic No. 7 sweater number of Ted Lindsay while allowing fans to pay their respects to the Lindsay Family.
Fans will be able to park in the Henry West Garage (128 West Fisher Service Drive) or Little Caesars Arena Garage (165 Sproat Street) for no charge and enter the building through the Meijer Entrance, located at the southwest corner of the arena, where they will be able to view the Ted Lindsay statue and sign a tribute banner which will be presented to the Lindsay Family.
After proceeding down the arena stairs or elevators to the event level, fans can walk onto the carpeted ice of Little Caesars Arena, where Ted Lindsay will lie in state inside the arena bowl. Members of the Lindsay Family will be present to greet the public, and various historical artifacts will be available for viewing throughout the arena.
The funeral service will be held at St. Andrew’s Church in Rochester, Mich., on Saturday, March 9. The funeral service will be closed to the general public. The Red Wings organization would like to encourage fans and media to respect the family’s privacy during this difficult time and for all those wishing to pay their respects to attend the public visitation held at Little Caesars Arena.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that a donation be made to the Ted Lindsay Foundation.
Those who wish to pay their respects but cannot attend the visitation are encouraged to share their Ted Lindsay memories on the Red Wings’ social media channels.
