Mike Green Skating, No Date Of Return Yet

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Slowly, Green is feeling normal again.

“It’s a combination of everything,” said Green, of how he felt early on when the virus hit. “You just don’t feel right, basically, especially when you do any sort of activity where you’re pushing yourself. Then, you really feel it.

"You can’t really do anything but rest.”

Green has begun to skate, but said there’s no timeline for a return to a Wings lineup that could use his puck-moving skills and veteran presence.

“There’s a fine balance of staying on the ice and not doing too much,” said Green of the rehabilitation. “We’ve done a good job of monitoring and slowly increasing each time (on the ice) without pushing too hard.

“It’s unfortunate it takes time. I wish there were a time frame or an answer with these sort of things. You really have to listen how you’re feeling. We’ve been doing tests every week. We’re doing everything we can.”

The virus, which at one point was attacking Green’s liver, hit hard right after training camp in Traverse City, although Green was beginning to feel sluggish heading into camp.

“A little bit before, and camp really sort of pushed me to the limits. That’s when we sort of knew something was wrong," he said.

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.
