Feb 8 - 1:43 PM

Mike Green scored his third goal of the season on Thursday in a 6-3 loss to Florida.

Feb 5 - 7:58 AM

The Detroit Red Wings need to show some improvement on the power play in the second half of the year.

Detroit is operating at 17.6 percent on the man-advantage this season which is good for 18th in the NHL. They went through a stretch where they didn't score a power play goal in 28 contests. The additions of Mike Green and Brad Richards were supposed to help, but that hasn't been the case. If they want to make a long playoff run, finding some consistency on special teams will key.
Jan 31 - 10:31 AM

Mike Green earned an assist in Detroit's 2-1 loss to St. Louis on Wednesday.

He had the lone helper on Henrik Zetterberg's late power-play goal during the third period. Green has scored two goals and 18 points in 40 games this year.
Jan 21 - 8:01 AM

Mike Green picked up a pair of helpers in Thursday's 3-2 win over Arizona.

They both came on the power play and were in addition to the trio of hits and blocks Green collected as well. So it was a full night for the veteran defender who now has just 17 points on the season.
Jan 15 - 12:25 AM

Mike Green got his second goal of the 2015-16 season on Tuesday night.

He scored one of Detroit's two power-play goals in a 4-3 loss to the New Jersey Devils. Green has earned six of his 13 points this campaign on the man advantage.

Mike Green found the back of the net in Detroit's 3-2 win over the Kings Friday night.

It was Green's first goal with the Red Wings. He now has seven points in 14 contests this season. As far as his point-per-game pace goes, that's certainly a good one for a defenseman, but he's capable of even better. "I think we’re just at the tip of the iceberg for him," Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. "I think he’s going to continue to get better and better as he gets more and more comfortable."

Mike Green registered a pair of assists in Monday's 4-3 overtime win against Ottawa.

He got the secondary helper on goals by Gustav Nyquist and Riley Sheahan. Green has a respectable six assists in 12 games this season, but he also has no goals and a minus-7 rating which works against his fantasy value.

Mike Green collected the 250th career assist in Sunday's 4-1 loss to Dallas.

Green also contributed a minor penalty, three shots and three hits. He's off to a good start through eight games with three points. However it's clear he'll never regain the form that allowed him to score 76 points in 2009-10. Green now has 250 assists and 363 points in 583 career games.

Mike Green is excited to get back into Detroit's lineup on Sunday.

The 30-year-old has missed six straight games because of an upper-body injury, but he will play against Dallas. "It's been two weeks but it's felt like a month," said Green. "I can't wait to get back out there." He has two assists in seven games this season. Now that he's healthy, he should be able to produce quite a bit more offense as the season goes on.

Mike Green remains on target to return to action Sunday afternoon against Dallas.

Green has missed seven consecutive games due to an upper-body injury (believed to be related to his shoulder). He participated in a full practice on Thursday and is hoping to do the same on Saturday. If Green gets through Saturday's scrimmage without any setbacks, he will be a player Sunday against the Stars.

Mike Green (upper body injury) will miss his seventh straight game on Friday against the Hurricanes.

Green has put up just two helpers with nine hits and 11 blocks in seven games so far this season, suggesting he's little more than a depth defender at this time even when rocking and healthy.

Mike Green (upper body) practiced fully on Thursday.

"First full day of practicing with the guys, it was a good way to judge," Green said. "You can gauge where you are from a strength standpoint, battling in the corners and out in front." He may be able to return on Friday or Sunday.

Mike Green (upper body) took part in Monday's practice.

Green had been skating the last few days with injured forward Pavel Datsyuk, but this was his first session since he suffered an upper-body injury on Oct. 23. Green might be able to return this weekend.
