Rangers vs. Red Wings - Game Recap - 8 March 2019

Detroit Red Wings v Tampa Bay Lightning

Detroit Red Wings v Tampa Bay Lightning

For those who do not remember, at the beginning of the 2018-19 season Red Wings defenseman had a viral infection that kept him off the ice which proved to be detrimental to the Red Wings success earlier in the season.

Green has 26 points (five goals, 21 assists) in 43 games this season.

Although Green has been a good player for the Red Wings when he is in the lineup, his unfortunate departure opens up the opportunity for younger players to get National Hockey League experience.

Head Coach Jeff Blashill told the media on Thursday that Green hadn't fought off the virus and the doctor recommended multiple weeks of rest, putting him out for the season.

Canada adds 55,900 jobs in February, exceeding forecasts
For the third consecutive month, Ontario and Quebec drove the overall gains, with little marked movement in the other provinces. The encouraging numbers provided a bright spot for the economy, which has posted disappointing data in recent months.

Selected by the Washington Capitals with the No. 29 pick in the 2004 NHL Draft, Green has 490 points (147 goals, 343 assists) in 830 NHL games through 14 seasons with the Capitals and Red Wings.

Green has dealt with injuries this year and receiving this news that his virus has returned is definitely not good to hear. The Calgary native is in his fourth season in Detroit and is under contract for one more season with a 5.375 million dollar cap hit next season after signing a two-year extension last season. Hopefully, Green will be able to kick this virus this offseason and be able to return next season in good health. Join the Octopus Thrower team!

Detroit Red Wings defenseman Mike Green will miss the remainder of the season because of a virus.
