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.
Green will sit out for Sunday's game versus the Flames as a precautionary measure, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports. Green is set to be an unrestricted free agent in July, so he could be traded by the Red Wings -- who have already been eliminated from playoff contention -- before Monday's deadline. The veteran blueliner can submit a 10-team, no-trade list, so he has some say in where he ends up. Jonathan Ericsson will enter the lineup in Green's place.
Green isn't getting caught up in trade rumors ahead of Monday's deadline, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. The 34-year-old rearguard is in his fifth season with the Red Wings. He's trudging along with three goals, eight assists and a minus-32 rating over 48 games, but contending teams assuredly will consider the fact that he's on an expiring contract. Green is cashing out the balance of a two-year, $10.75 million deal. "You worry about day-to-day in this league," he said. "Obviously, anything can happen, but it's not something I stew over too much."
Green (undisclosed) is available for Saturday's game against the Bruins, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports. Green was expected to suit up Saturday, but the coaching staff wanted to wait until the day of the contest to make an official decision. The veteran blueliner should slot into his normal role for the contest, though he's certainly experienced a major drop off in offensive production this season.
