A native of Calgary, AB, Devin Green first made his way to Lloydminster after a trade with the Okotoks Oilers early in the 2012-13 season.
Being away from friends and family for the first time, it didn't take the goaltender long to find his place in his new home, appearing in 23 games as an 18 year-old with the Bobcats in his first year of junior hockey. It was only up from there as he played the lion's share of games in his next season, registering 39 appearances before ceding the crease to Chris Tai for the majority of a two-round playoff run that spring.
Rather than being dejected after losing his role as starter, Green continued to elevate his game and put forth an impressive campaign in 2014-15, setting a new franchise record with seven shutouts in the season, playing in 49 of 60 regular season games. As the lone 20 year-old remaining on the team in the spring of 2015, Green helped the young roster to the second round, ultimately falling to the Bonnyville Pontiacs in a thrilling six-game series.
Shortly after his final season of junior eligibility came to a close, Green made his next move in announcing his commitment to Lakehead University, where he has now completed his first season with the Thunderwolves (Canadian Interuniversity Sport) hockey team while balancing a regular academic workload as well.
Following his first season at Lakehead, Green was recognized as the Top Defensive Player on a very young Thunderwolves team, and will look to step into an even greater role in 2016-17.
