People came trickling into Little Caesar Arena Friday -- many in the 50s and older -- to pay respect to one the great Detroit Red Wings hockey players, Ted Lindsay, who died this past week at age 93. The Red Wings opened the arena for a public viewing of Lindsay's casket. People of note in attendance included Marian Ilitch, Red Wings General Manager Ken Holland and former and current Red Wings.
Lindsay was fierce on the ice, a tough competitor by any standard who earned the nickname "Terrible Ted." Off the ice, he was known for his generosity and for being highly principled.
The public viewing, which began at 9:07 a.m., runs until 7:07 p.m., a tribute his jersey number. -- Michael Lucido.
