Let's MoveWashington Capitals defenseman Mike Green will join First Lady Michelle Obama, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, USA Hockey Executive Director Dave Ogrean and members of the Chicago Blackhawks for a street hockey clinic on Friday, March 11.

The clinic, which will be run by members of the Blackhawks and Capitals, is part of a new collaboration between the First Lady's "Let's Move!" initiative, the NHL and USA Hockey to encourage U.S. children to lead active and healthy lifestyles.

Green and Blackhawks All-Star forward Patrick Sharp, along with Obama, Bettman and Ogrean, will take part in a ceremonial puck drop to start the clinic.

The children participating in the clinic will be third- and fourth-grade students from Powell Elementary School, which was adopted by the Capitals for the season. Also taking part will be children age 13-18 from the Fort Dupont Ice Hockey Program and local members of the American Special Hockey Association.
