Lindsay wishes Gordie a happy birthday

by Todd Beam / Detroit Red Wings

“I would like to wish Mr. Hockey, Gordie Howe, the greatest hockey player to ever play the game, a very Happy 87th Birthday. No one to this day can play the game with the same combination of toughness and skill that Gordie displayed for 25 years in a Red Wings uniform. He was a great teammate and I’m thrilled at the progress he’s made in his recovery. I wish him all the best as he continues his battle. Happy Birthday, Gordie!”

-Ted Lindsay, Mar. 31, 2015
