The Red Wings have placed Mike Green (virus) on injured reserve.
Green was already expected to miss the start of the regular season with a virus that caused him to miss part of training camp. With Green out, the Red Wings have kept a trio of rookie defensemen around to fill the holes on their blueline. There is no return date set for Green’s return.

Green “is over the worst” of his viral infection.
Green could miss the start of the regular season due to a virus that was attacking his liver. The Red Wings sent Green to see some specialists after he complained about fatigue during training camp. GM Ken Holland told reporters that he is “on the backside” of the infection. His likely absence to begin the season means that two of Dennis Cholowski, Libor Sulak, Filip Hronek and Joe Hicketts will make the opening night roster.
Green (undisclosed) is likely to miss the start of the regular season.
Green has been dealing with fatigue, so he will visit a specialist to figure out what he’s dealing with. The Red Wings are expected to know more in a few days, but don’t expect to see Green on their blueline on opening night. This is huge blow to an already terrible Detroit D-corps.
The Red Wings re-signed Mike Green to a two-year deal worth $10.75M ($5.375M AAV).
After his three-year contract ended in Detroit, Green decides not to test the free agency market and re-up with the Red Wings. During that three-year stretch, Green ranked 25th among defensemen in goals (29) and 35th in points (104).
Green will undergo cervical spine surgery and miss the rest of the 2017-18 season.

Green (neck) is expected to return to the Red Wings lineup on Friday.
Green has missed the last seven games with a neck injury but is expected to be back in the Red Wings lineup in Winnipeg. Not many expected Green’s return to be in Red Wings’ uniform, but he was not dealt at the trade deadline. Green, who has picked up six goals and 23 assists (29 points) in 56 games this season will draw in for an unnamed defenseman.
