Detroit Red Wings defensemen have scored just five goals this season.

Only the Buffalo Sabres defensemen have scored less often. Wings blue liner Mike Green has scored two of those five contests. "It's important to us, probably like every team, that our D are active in the rush; it's something we work on every day in practice," Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. "You have to have four, really five, now in the attack to have a good chance to score. I think we can do a better job on those line rushes potentially delaying and hitting some of the late guys, being the D."

Mike Green is interested in re-signing with Detroit.

At the same time, Green realizes he could be used as a trade chip given that he's in the last season of his contract. "I've been in the league for a while, I understand," Green said. "It's day-to-day every game is extremely important. I don't think you have time to worry about that stuff (possibly being traded) my focus is day-to-day I don't think about it the chips will fall where they fall." Green's been superb so far with a goal and 14 points in 18 games.

Mike Green assisted on all four goals by Detroit in Thursday's season-opening win against Minnesota.

Mike Green can become an unrestricted free agent after the 2017-18 season.

Green was by far Detroit's top offensive blueliner last year. He averaged 0.50 points per game, which was nearly double that of Nick Jensen, who finished second among Red Wings defensemen with 0.27 points per contest. Detroit's other rearguards combined for 17 goals, while Green finished with 14 of his own. It will be interesting to see if he's willing to take less money to stay with Detroit or if he will be used as a trade chip at the deadline. Still, the Wings will be hard-pressed to get offense from the back end if Green is gone.
