Observations:

November 2017 – Green has yet to hit the ice for the Sherbrooke Phoenix this season after suffering a dislocated shoulder in Jets training camp. Despite requiring surgery and being scheduled to miss 4-5 months, the 19-year-old was signed to an entry level contract by the Jets. Green looks to be on track to rejoin his QMJHL squad in the New Year — of course barring any setbacks in his rehab. – Jamie Zadow

January 2017 – Green has been a fast riser this season in the Jets organization, the former first overall pick in the QMJHL draft, was traded to the Sherbrook Phoenix, where he’s averaged more than a point per game since the trade. The young blueliner is very offensively gifted and is very good off the rush to make smart plays in traffic. He is reliable on the defensive end, but it’s his offensive abilities which will dictate whether he has a future in the pro game. He’s very smart and will only learn to better ply his skill to become a future offensive defenceman in the NHL.

 

Fantasy Outlook: C

Offensive defenceman with good size and skating ability but needs development time.
