At 33, Green is 13 years older than Cholowski and has 787 NHL games under his belt. Green said he is also looking forward to playing with the gifted young defenseman.
"He's such a great, young talent," Green said after Thursday's practice. "Been able to watch him over the last month and a bit, he's really multidimensional. He's kind of got all the tools in the tickle trunk. Now I get a chance to play with him."
Wings coach Jeff Blashill is just hoping the two can click as a pair.
"(Cholowski) can learn somethings offensively, I am hoping more than anything else it's just a good pair," Blashill said. "Obviously, there two guys who can move the puck. Mike is a little more active in his skating, Dennis is a little more efficient in his offense where it doesn't come so much from beating people up the ice as it does from his stick and his poise."
FRK BACK IN: Martin Frk will play in his second game of the season when the Wings host the Winnipeg Jets tonight.
The Wings have gone through some hard practices since their poor effort against the Carolina Hurricanes Monday night, something that Frk expected.
