Head Coach Vancouver Canucks
As a new coach to the NHL, Travis Green relies on his experience as an NHL player with 5 different teams. Considered the past few years as a coaching star in the making, Green credits this NHL playing experience as a major factor in his success now behind the bench. Green spent 14 years in the NHL, appearing in 970 games for five different organizations, including dual stints with both the Maple Leafs and Ducks. Along the way there were countless learning experiences both on and off the ice, hundreds of different teammates, and numerous coaches, including Hall of Fame legends Al Arbour and Pat Quinn. Green was drafted 23rd overall by the New York Islanders in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft.
As of the last completed NHL season, Green played 857 career games, scoring 182 goals and 249 assists for 431 points. His best season statistically was the 1995–96 season, when he scored 25 goals and 45 assists for 70 points in only 69 games.
On June 30, 2006, the final year of his contract with the Boston Bruins was bought out. On August 10, 2006, he was signed by the Anaheim Ducks, the team he had previously played for from 1998 to 1999. However, he played only seven games in his return to the Ducks, before being claimed on waivers by another former team, the Toronto Maple Leafs, in January 2007. Green was also a member of Team Canada at the 2007 Spengler Cup.
Bring the excitement of the NHL and the cache of a NHL celebrity to your events, golf tournaments or corporate dinners by having Travis Green act as your host, emcee or engage in a meet and greet.
