One Red Wing was named to this year’s All-Star Game, defenseman Mike Green. Green was also named to the All-Star Game in 2011, as a member of the Washington Capitals.

Green, 32, currently sits 10th among Eastern Conference defensemen in assists with 20. The 6’1″, 207-pound right shot defenseman was originally the 29th overall pick of the Washington Capitals in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. Currently in the final season of a three-year contract, Green is still among the best power play quarterbacks in the league.

You can watch Green in the All-Star Game and NHL Skills Competition on NBC and NBCSN, respectively. The skills competition will take place January 27, while the game will be played the following day, January 28.

My name is Tom, and I have been an avid hockey and Colts fan for most of my life. The lack of an NHL team here means I try to watch hockey any way I can, including a lot of nights as a youngster inside old Market Square Arena watching the Indianapolis Ice. I am excited to bring you my perspective on a multitude of hockey teams. Additionally I enjoy shooting sports, and rooting for America in the Summer and Winter Olympics.
