(WXYZ) — The Red Wings are wearing No. 7 patches to honor Ted Lindsay.

Each sweater has Lindsay's retired number on the upper chest, above the Red Wings crest.

Lindsay died Monday at the age of 93. The Hockey Hall of Famer won four Stanley Cup championships with Detroit.

The Colorado Avalanche held a moment of silence before Tuesday's game against the Red Wings in Denver.

The team will honor Lindsay by painting a No. 7 on the ice at Little Caesars Arena, wear it will remain for the rest of the season.

Patches are expected to go on sale at the team store on Wednesday.
