It appears the old band is getting back together!
Nicklas Backstrom and former Capitals defenseman Mike Green are vacationing together during the All-Star Break. Mike Green’s wife Courtney captured the two former teammates in the pool. Backstrom can be seen playing with Greenie’s son Axel while his red-haired daughter Haley, wearing two pool floaties, is seen swimming in the background.
Days after registering his first career NHL hat trick, Mike Green hosted a Q&A on the Detroit Red Wings’s Twitter account. Greenie didn’t answer our awesome question, but he did take time to respond to such important queries like What’s your favorite color? and Have you ever thought of changing your name to Mike Red?
Green was also asked one of the most controversial questions of all time, “Is a hot dog was a sandwich?” Green responded, short and to the point, “No.” But Mike, it’s meat and it’s on a bun. Of course it’s a sandwich. The freaking dictionary defines it as a sandwich. It’s a sandwich.
Former Capital Mike Green just scored his first career hat trick on a historic night. During the Red Wings final home opener at Joe Louis Arena, Green scored a goal in each period, notching his first three-point night since March 8 against the Columbus Blue Jackets (three assists).
In April, former Capitals defenseman Mike Green became a father for the first time, after wife Courtney gave birth to Axel Rain Green. Since then, both mom and dad have posted a bunch of photos of their adorable child on Instagram.
Thursday afternoon, they posted the below photo and I just had to share it.
Early Wednesday morning, former Capital Mike Green and his wife Courtney were celebrating the birth of their first child. Axel Rain Green was born at 5:45 AM. According to Courtney, Axel weighed 7.1 lbs and is 20.5 inches long.
The parents shared photos on social media.
Saturday night, former Capital and Winter Classic Hero Troy Brouwer will return to Verizon Center for the first time since being traded to the Blues for TJ Oshie. Which is why several hours earlier it was completely appropriate that two other former Caps, Eric Fehr and Mike Green, played against each other.
Green and Fehr both scored. Both players were on the ice for both goals, and both goals were ugly.
Tuesday night, Leonsis got a picture with Mike Green after the Caps’ 3-2 shootout victory over the Red Wings. Leonsis included a kind message with the photo.
