The Washington Post is reporting Washington Capitals defenseman Mike Green has said he will play Thursday when they face the Winnipeg Jets.

Green has missed the past 10 games and has played twice since Feb. 14, due to a groin injury. He missed two weeks in February after initially getting hurt, and returned for games Feb. 26 against the Carolina Hurricanes and Feb. 27 at the Philadelphia Flyers. He saw more than 21 minutes of ice time in each game, but hasn't played since.

In 16 games this season, Green has two goals and five assists.

Quote of the Day

It's very special, obviously; there is draft day and then there's the day that you sign your first deal. It's been a crazy couple of weeks and I'm very honored to be able to do that."
