Green participated in warm-ups for the second straight contest, but is not in the lineup for the Capitals against the New Jersey Devils on Saturday afternoon at Verizon Center. Green has two goals and seven points in 14 games for the Capitals this season.
He played in a total of 81 games in the previous two seasons because of a myriad of injuries.
What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
