Green will hang up his skates and end his professional career, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports. Green spent 15 years playing in the NHL for the Capitals, Red Wings and Oilers. In 880 career appearances, the blueliner registered 150 goals, 351 assists and 592 PIM. The two-time NHL All-Star also appeared in another 76 postseason contess (37 points).
Green has opted out of the Return to Play program, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports. Green battled a liver-attacking virus throughout the 2018-19 campaign, which undoubtedly factored into his decision to forego the playoffs. The 34-year-old blueliner will become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and although he's battled health issues over the past two campaigns, he should still draw plenty of interest on the open market as a capable vet that can still quarterback a No. 2 power-play unit at a high level.
Green (knee) will be ready to play once the NHL season resumes, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports. Green was expected to miss 2-4 weeks due to his knee injury and was forced to sit out seven games prior to the league suspending the season. The 33-year-old has made just two appearances for the Oilers after coming over from Detroit at the trade deadline. Even with Green fully fit, he likely will be limited to mid-range fantasy value once contests resume.
Green is expected to be sidelined for 3-to-4 weeks with a sprained MCL, Ryan Rishaug of TSN.ca reports. Green appeared in just two contests for the Oilers after joining the club at the trade deadline before suffering his knee injury. The veteran blueliner will now set his sights on healing up in time for the playoffs. Matt Benning and William Lagesson will continue to log bottom-four minutes until Oscar Klefbom (shoulder) or Green is ready to return.
Green is expected to miss some time due to a knee injury, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports. Green is just two scoreless games into his career with the Oilers and has suffered an injury that will leave him sidelined for an undetermined amount of time. The team should release more information regarding the veteran blueliner's status as he closes in on rejoining the action. In the meantime, Matt Benning is the likely candidate on the current roster to replace him in the lineup.
