Colin Greening - Tough!

By Chet Sellers

Colin Greening, with three goals in three games, has been the Senators’ best forward in their second-round series with Pittsburgh. His toughness was also on full display last night, as he scored the game winning goal in double-overtime with blood and chunks of fiberglass falling out of his cheek like balls in a pachinko machine.

But how much do you really know about the toughness of playoff hero Colin Greening? Let’s find out! And remember, these are all REAL facts – none of that Chuck Norris BS!
  • Colin Greening is from Newfoundland – Canada’s toughest province!
  • The Senators drafted him in the 7th round of the 2005 draft – the toughest round!
  • He played NCAA hockey for four years at Cornell – the Ivy League’s toughest school!
  • He was a member of the Calder Cup-winning 2010-11 Binghamton Senators, featuring Robin Lehner, the world’s toughest goaltender!
  • After they won he did this in front of a bunch of people!  He don’t care!
  •  He lost the fastest skater competition at the 2012 All-Star Game to Carl Hagelin, but didn’t let it get him down! Resilient!
  • He is widely regarded as the smartest guy in the Senators dressing room – being so tough and so smart, that’s tough (as in difficult)!
  • He’s been practicing last night's double-OT winner for over four years! How do you keep up that kind of commitment? Toughness! 

Here’s to you, Colin Greening. You’ll never have to buy a drink in this town again.
