Green missed three games late last month with a groin injury but returned to play more than 21 minutes in the Capitals' back-to-back games against the Carolina Hurricanes on Feb. 26 and the Philadelphia Flyers on Feb. 27.
In 16 games this season, Green has two goals and five assists.
It was definitely emotional. I really appreciated the fans. It was a cool feeling and it felt special and the ovation there at the start and then you kind of feel funny out there standing by yourself. Thinking back, I was saying just a bit ago, you think back just trying to make the NHL and then you kind of reflect on all the years being able to play for a great organization here in Calgary and all the fun I've had so far in my career. I feel very fortunate and blessed.
