On Tuesday night the Washington Capitals pro hockey club will play against the Red Wings of Detroit hockey team in a match of hockey. To get you ready for the hockey match, we at R.M.N.B. have randomly selected a hockey player to introduce to you. The player we have selected is Mike Green, a defenseman hockey player for the Detroit Red Wings hockey team. This article post will answer all the questions you were too afraid to ask about Mike Green.
“I don’t know if it was the manufacturing or what, but it just made for a really good stick,” Green said then. “Over the years, maybe they changed the technology or the balance and it’s just not the same. For me, these are perfect.”
Green has continued to use the bright blue relic in Detroit. On Monday, Green’s former teammate, Alex Ovechkin, promised to give the stick the respect it deserves.
Former Capitals defenseman Mike Green returned to Detroit’s line-up on Sunday afternoon after missing six games with a shoulder injury. Green was featured all over NHL social media after he handed a puck to a tiny Red Wings fan during warm-ups.
Mike Green, one of the greatest defensemen in Caps history, is no longer a Cap. Bob McKenzie reports that Green has signed a 3-year, $18 million deal with the Detroit Red Wings with an average salary of $6 million. It’s basically the same contract as the one he signed with the Caps three years ago. According to Craig Custance, the deal also has a full no-trade clause.
Last summer, the Red Wings were rumored to have been trying to trade for Green. Now they have their man without giving up anything in return. Besides a lot of money, of course, although maybe not as much as some expected.
The Capitals released a statement minutes after news of Green’s departure broke.
“We want to thank Mike for 10 great seasons with the Washington Capitals,” the team wrote. “Mike was an ultimate professional in his long tenure with our organization and had a huge impact on our community. We wish Mike all the best with the Detroit Red Wings organization.”
