Mike Green About A Week Away From Returning

01/05/2019 at 4:30pm EST

from Dana Wakiji and Arthur J. Regner of the Wings website,

The good news is that Red Wings defenseman Mike Green has started skating with pads on.

The bad news is he won't be ready to play Sunday night against the Washington Capitals, his former team.

"I skated yesterday and today," Green said. "I feel good. Now it's just a matter of kind of getting back into game shape."

Green did not skate with the seven players and two goaltenders who took to the ice for the team's optional practice Saturday at the Belfor Training Center, instead going on his own.

Wings coach Jeff Blashill said after Green is able to skate with stops and starts, it should be about a week before Green can play.

Green said he did do stops and starts Saturday and it felt okay.

"It did, yeah. I'm just gonna kind of make sure that I don't have any setbacks," Green said. "Yesterday and today I haven't, so it'll be like Blash said, about a week."

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
