Andrew "Andy" Greene (born October 30, 1982) is an American ice hockey player and an alternate captain of the New Jersey Devils of the National Hockey League.

Playing career[edit]

Greene in 2010.

Before joining the Devils, he attended and played hockey for Miami University. He was signed out of Miami University, and was assigned to the Devil's AHL affiliate, the Lowell Devils, after training camp. He succeeded at the AHL level, making the PlanetUSA all-star team. During his rookie professional season in 2006–07, he was called up for a short stint to replace the injured Johnny Oduya. Though Greene played well and showed considerable promise, he was reassigned to Lowell upon Oduya's return. Later in the season, he was again recalled when Colin White was injured. When the 2007 playoffs began, the NHL salary cap no longer applied, allowing the Devils to add Greene to their permanent roster. With the return of injured defenseman Richard Matvichuk, it appeared as though Greene would sit. However, an injury to Colin White allowed Greene to remain on the roster. During this period, Greene played so well that, upon White's return, Oduya was scratched instead of Greene.

On July 1, 2011, Greene was signed to a four-year contract extension with the Devils.[1]

At the conclusion of the 2012-13 NHL season, Andy Greene was awarded the New Jersey Devils MVP Award at their annual team awards ceremony.

At the conclusion of the 2013-14 NHL season, Andy Greene was awarded the New Jersey Devils Unsung Hero Award at their annual team awards ceremony.
