Aeshna verticalis
Yep, male Green-striped (Aeshna verticalis). This species has the anterior lateral thoracic stripe shallowly notched, and with a thick posterior extension. Canada Darner (A. canadensis) has a deeper notch on the leading edge of the stripe, and the posterior extension is normally thinner and more tapered.
