  • NHL Central Scouting on Luke Green: "Highly effective skating, puck moving defenceman. Strong and mobile skater who is capable to lead a rush and who excels at jumping into the attack.  Advances the puck effectively with first pass plays and distributes puck well on power play.  Shoots with authority and can find the shooting lanes from point.”
  • From yesterday’s Sport Testing Combine: “Some notable single event off-ice performances included Noah Gregor of the Moose Jaw Warriors and Luke Green of the Saint John Sea Dogs who dueled in the vertical jump, a key determinant of leg power used across sport.  Ultimately Gregor won by 1.5 inches, with a top score of 32 inches.”
