Robert Blake Theodore “Terrible Ted" Lindsay - Born July 29, 1925 in Renfrew, Ontario - Died March 4, 2019 in Oakland, Michigan was a Ice Hockey left winger and established the original Players' Association.

Lindsay kisses the Stanley Cup right after Detroit head coach Jimmy Skinner kissed it, starting a Hockey tradition that continues to this day with the Stanley Cup.

Lindsay scored over 800 points in his Hockey Hall of Fame career, won the Art Ross Trophy in 1950, and won the Stanley Cup four times (1950, 1952, 1954, 1955).

Often referred to as "Terrible Ted", Lindsay helped to organize the National Hockey League Players' Association (NHLPA) in the late 1950s, an action which led to his trade to the Chicago Black Hawks.
