Former Capital Defenseman Mike Green will see the 2018-19 season end as it began.
Thursday, Detroit Red Wings announced that Greenie will be out for the rest of the season due to a virus.
According to the club, Green’s virus is the same that caused him to miss the first nine games during the regular season.
“The doctor has suggested several weeks of complete rest to deal with it, so he will be out for the season,” said Jeff Blashill, coach at Red Wings. “From what we understand, the complete rest should take care of it. This should not be something that continues to come back. “
In September, Red Wings first made Green’s fight with an infectious disease.
” He is not available right now, “Blashill said during the offense.” He has a virus that attacked his liver, so he sees a contagious disease today and we should know more here in the next little bit. I do not know how long he will be out. I don’t know the totality of it. “
GM Ken Holland added that Green” has not had much energy. “
Green finished the season with five goals and 26 points in 43 games. He also ran 21
:41 per game, second most at Detroit.
We wish him the best in his recovery.
