He was one of the first prominent players to jump to the WHA, where he added more championship hardware:

D Ted Green

Terrible Ted !

Coming off of his best season in 1969 (for which he was named to the Second All-Star Team), Green was involved in an infamous incident in an exhibition game in Ottawa versus the St. Louis Blues on September 21, 1969, engaging in a bloody stick fight with Blues' forward Wayne Maki. Green was struck in the head, suffering a fractured skull and brain damage, and missing the remainder of the 1970 season, during which Boston won the Stanley Cup.Green was left paralyzed and close to death with no expectations of ever resuming his career on ice.Though Green did not officially win the Cup, his teammates gave him his share of the prize money.
