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 (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.
