Green, a 17-year-old defenseman in his second year with the Sea Dogs, has a solid seven goals and 11 assists in 29 games this year. Impressively, six of his seven goals and 10 of his 11 assists have come on the road (15 games). Green only has two points – one goal and one assist – in 14 home games.
Saint John, overall, has been good on the road this season. With an 11-6-1-0 record away from home this season, they are tied for the second most road wins in the QMJHL.
All of the players who sit ahead of Green on the team scoring leaderboard have relatively even home/road numbers. Green, the third star of the league this week, is an exception, it seems.
