Green won the Stanley Cup as a player with the Boston Bruins in 1970 and 1972, and five more times as an assistant coach with Edmonton (1984, 1985, 1987, 1988) and co-coach (1990).

Green, known as “Terrible Ted” through his playing days as a defenceman, appeared in 620 games in the NHL and 452 in the WHA with the New England Whalers and Winnipeg Jets.

The Eriksdale, Man., native spent 188 regular-season games behind the Oilers bench as head coach from 1991 to the 1993-94 season.

He led the team to the conference finals in 1992, but Edmonton missed the playoffs the following year and Green was fired in 1993 after a 3-18-3 start to the season.

The New York Rangers held a moment of silence for Green Saturday before their afternoon game against the Oilers at Madison Square Garden.
