Greene Named 11th Devils' Captain

Veteran defenseman Andy Greene (Miami) was named the 11th captain in New Jersey Devils history prior to tonight's season opener against the Winnipeg Jets at the Prudential Center. A former Devils’ alternate captain, Greene succeeds former teammate Bryce Salvador, who retired in the off-season.
A native of Trenton, Mich., Greene, 32, has played his entire NHL career with New Jersey after signing with the Devils as a free agent in 2006. In 559 career NHL regular-season appearances through the 2014-15 campaign, he had tallied 31 goals and 140 assists for 171 points. He has also played in 45 Stanley Cup Playoff contests, collecting three goals and seven points, and was a member of New Jersey's 2012 Eastern Conference championship club.
Greene, who prepped with Compuware (NAHL) before enrolling in college, played for Miami from 2002 to 2006, notching 27-97—124 points while helping the Red Hawks to a CCHA regular-season title as a senior, along with a pair of NCAA Tournament berths in his collegiate career.
