Well, in 1922 he scored 31 points in 9 games for Sudbury in the NOHA, which also had the Cook brothers in the league with Sault Ste. Marie. Bill had 12 points in 8 games; Bun had 3 in 3. This was Green's best year and one of Bill Cook's worst, but that's one heck of a gap. And it wasn't an age thing; Bill Cook was actually 4 years older than Green.

In 1923 he has 11 points in 7 games; Bun Cook had 5 in 8. Bill had moved on to the WCHL.

Left-winger Redvers Green played with four different NHL clubs in the 20s. He was an accomplished goal scorer as an amateur and pro and could handle the rough side of the game as well.

The native of Sudbury, Ontario played junior with Toronto De LaSalle, the Parkdale Canoe Club and the NOHA's Sudbury Wolves. He then played with the senior Wolves and the Port Colborne Sailors before making his NHL debut with the Hamilton Tigers in 1923-24. The next year he scored 19 goals playing on a line with Billy Burch and xxx. On December 5, 1924, Green became the eighth player in league history to score at least five goals in a game when he victimized John Ross Roach of the Toronto St. Pats. Following the season he joined most of his teammates with the New York Americans after their labour dispute was quelled by the league.

Green was a solid offensive contributor for three years in New York but the team failed to make the post-season. He toiled briefly for the Detroit Cougars in 1928-29 and played 22 games for the Boston Bruins after being claimed on waivers. Green then played three seasons in the American Hockey Association with the Duluth Hornets and Tulsa Oilers before retiring in 1932.

Red Green and Burch staged a smart combine and then Hooley went skimming through on a dangerous solo effort that Simpson nipped in the bud.

Showing the best form they have displayed here this season, the Madisons played a fast game in the early stages with Burch and the two Greens displaying the short passing attack that made them famous in other years. After the attack had served its purpose it was kept in reserve and the sextet devoted themselves to defense.
