ROYAL OAK, Mich. (AP) — The foundation of hockey Hall of Famer Ted Lindsay is donating $1 million to a center in Michigan to help children with autism and their families.

Beaumont Health System announced Wednesday support from the Ted Lindsay Foundation will expand and create a new facility for the Hands-On Parent Education Center, which offers services for families of children with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disorders.

Previously known as the HOPE Center, the facility is part of the Royal Oak-based health system’s Beaumont Children’s Hospital. In recognition of the gift, the Beaumont Health System is renaming the center as the “Ted Lindsay Foundation HOPE Center.”

Lindsay played in the NHL for Detroit and Chicago. His foundation has supported autism research and programs for more than a decade.
