Jordan Greenway (born February 16, 1997) is an American professional ice hockey forward currently playing for the Minnesota Wild in the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected by the Minnesota Wild in the second round (50th overall) in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
Internationally, Greenway has represented the United States at the 2017 IIHF World Championship and 2018 Winter Olympics, becoming the first African-American named to a US Olympic roster. In 2018, Greenway became the first player to play in the Olympic games, an NCAA tournament, and the Stanley Cup playoffs within the same season.
Greenway began playing hockey in the Canton minor hockey association before going to play high school hockey in Minnesota at Shattuck-Saint Mary's before joining the USA Hockey National Team Development Program (U.S. NTDP). As a member of the U.S. NTDP, he played the 2013–14 and 2014–15 seasons in the United States Hockey League (USHL). Greenway's outstanding play was rewarded when he was invited to skate in the 2014 CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game.
After his selection by the Wild in the NHL Entry Draft, Greenway played his freshman season for the Boston University Terriers in the 2015–16 season. In his Junior year, Greenway was selected to the Hockey East Third All-Star Team after reaching the 30-point mark for the second season. Greenway was also named to the Hockey East All-Tournament Team after the 2018 Hockey East Men's Ice Hockey Tournament along with teammates Jake Oettinger and Chad Krys. On March 26, 2018, he signed a three year entry level contract with the Minnesota Wild. Greenway made his NHL debut the following day in a 2–1 loss to the Nashville Predators. Greenway played his first career NHL playoff game in Game 1 of the 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs against the Winnipeg Jets. By doing so, Greenway became the first player to play in the Olympic games, an NCAA tournament, and the Stanley Cup playoffs within the same season. Greenway scored his first career NHL goal, and first playoff goal, on April 15 in a 6–2 win over the Winnipeg Jets.
