Comedian Dave Coulier remembered something Lindsay said to him after he was heckled while performing for Red Wings alumni.

"I turned around and there was Ted and he said, 'You know David, I know you didn't appreciate that audience the other night very much, but I want you to know I appreciate you.,'" Coulier said. "He was that kind of guy who would look you in the eye and he would make your day."

Former captain Henrik Zetterberg shared fond memories of No. 7, saying that Lindsay always provided a confidence boost.

"He was so involved in the team and he always knew what was going on," he said.
