Ian Kinsler may be a world champion with the Boston Red Sox, but on Friday night, the four-time All-Star second baseman was bedecked in Victory Green.

Before Dallas' game against the Boston Bruins at American Airlines Center, the former Texas Rangers star was welcomed back to the Metroplex by participating in a ceremonial puck drop at center ice.

Wearing a custom, No. 5 Stars jersey with his name emblazoned on the back, Kinsler was greeted warmly by the Dallas faithful as he waived to fans before dropping the puck for Stars captain Jamie Benn and Patrice Bergeron of the Bruins.

A two-time Gold Glove Award winner, Kinsler won his first World Series title with the Red Sox this season as Boston fended off the Los Angeles Dodgers in five games. The 36-year-old, who is currently a free agent, spent eight seasons with the Rangers from 2006 to 2013.
