Capitals Defenseman Mike Green is garnering a lot of attention these days, and rightly so. He's the leading NHL defenseman in goals (16), power-play goals (12) and points(42), despite missing 13 games this season due to injury. He has the fourth-highest point total on the Capitals team. He was named the Third Star of the Week by the NHL last week after racking up seven points in three games. He is currently on a four-game goal streak.
All of this comes from a very busy guy: he ranks 10th in the NHL with average ice time per game of 25:33.
Those are amazing accomplishments, and many are starting to speculate as to how strong a candidate Green is to win the Norris Trophy.
In addition to his contributions to the team, Mike Green is also a great guy. He gives back to the community and his fans by providing tickets to deserving children and families of soldiers and low-income families through the Most Valuable Kids program.
