Playing career

Andy Greene andygreene20120209jpg

Before joining the Devils, he attended and played hockey for Miami University. He was signed out of Miami University, and was assigned to the Devil's AHL affiliate, the Lowell Devils, after training camp. He succeeded at the AHL level, making the PlanetUSA all-star team. During his rookie professional season in 2006–07, he was called up for a short stint to replace the injured Johnny Oduya. Though Greene played well and showed considerable promise, he was reassigned to Lowell upon Oduya's return. Later in the season, he was again recalled when Colin White was injured. When the 2007 playoffs began, the NHL salary cap no longer applied, allowing the Devils to add Greene to their permanent roster. With the return of injured defenseman Richard Matvichuk, it appeared as though Greene would sit. However, an injury to Colin White allowed Greene to remain on the roster. During this period, Greene played so well that, upon White's return, Oduya was scratched instead of Greene.
