Green has opted out of the NHL's Return to Play.

Green is one of six players that has opted out of the NHL playoffs, citing "deeply personal family health reasons." Green only played two games with the Oilers after being acquired from the Red Wings on February 24th. Green's decision completes his trade, with Detroit getting a 2020 fourth-round pick from Edmonton. That could have become a 2021 third-round pick if the Oilers reached the Conference Finals and Green played in 50 percent of the games.

Green will miss three-to-four weeks with a sprained MCL.

Green suffered the injury late in his second game with the Oilers and is expected to miss at least 12-to-15 games with a sprained MCL. Green was added at the deadline to help a banged-up blueline but now joins Oscar Klefbom and Kris Russell on the sidelines. Green should be ready for the final few games of the regular season and playoffs if the Oilers qualify.

The Oilers have acquired Mike Green from the Red Wings for Kyle Brodziak a conditional 2020 fourth-round pick.

The Red Wings will get a 2021 third-round pick instead if the Oilers make it to the Western Conference Finals and Mike Green plays in 50 percent of the games. The Red Wings are also retaining half of Green’s salary. Green helps bolster an Oilers blueline that is currently without Oscar Klefbom and Kris Russell. The veteran defenseman has struggled this season, scoring three goals with eight assists (11 points) and a minus-32 rating in 48 games.

Green is expected to miss a couple of weeks with an upper-body injury.

Green was forced to leave Monday's game with an upper-body injury and head coach Jeff Blashill announced that he'll be out for at least a couple of weeks. With the bye week starting after Wednesday's game, Green could only end up missing roughly seven games. Jonathan Ericsson will likely draw back into the lineup for Ericsson on Wednesday.

Green (virus) is expected to miss the rest of the season.

Green is dealing with the same virus that he had at the start of the season and a specialist recommended a few weeks rest, which effectively rules him out for the rest of the season. Green finishes his season with 26 points (5G / 21A) in 43 games—10-goal, 40-assist per 82-game pace.
