Green skated to a minus-4 rating through 17:15 of ice time in Saturday's devastating 10-1 road loss to the Canadiens.

EDGE Analysis

The Red Wings were outshot 34-to-23 in this contest and Green picked up just one block to cap off the forgettable performance. He didn't factor into his team's lone goal to help his own cause, either. With the Canadian defenseman earning only one point through his last eight games, he's a reasonable candidate for your fantasy bench assuming you have at least one viable alternative.

Green lit the lamp Tuesday against the Kings, but the Red Wings lost 4-1 to the Kings at home.

EDGE Analysis

This was just the second goal of the season for Green, who snapped a five-game pointless skid. Given that the Alberta native is the only true offensive threat among the Wings defensemen, he has to rely heavily on his passing skills to be productive. He's up to 16 helpers (nine on the power play) through 25 games this season to stay relevant in fantasy circles.

Green managed three power-play assists in Wednesday's 8-2 dismantling of Calgary at home.

EDGE Analysis

This was his fourth multi-point effort of the season, but the first since hanging two points on the lowly Coyotes in an Oct. 12 contest. Green is the only defenseman on the Wings profiling as a true power-play quarterback, which basically ensures that the veteran will continue receiving as much playing time as his 32-year-old body allows.

Green ranks ninth among defensemen with 14 points (one goal, 13 assists) in 18 games.

EDGE Analysis

Those numbers are a bit skewed by his hot start, which included eight assists through his first four games of the season, but Green remains a serviceable fantasy option who's in a contract year. He's cashing in the balance of a three-year, $18 million contract with the Red Wings, but he'd likely need to go on an absurd run to command that kind of money on his next deal regardless of where he winds up.

Green went plus-1 with three shots on goal and four hits in Saturday's 3-2 shootout road win over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran offense-first blueliner had some issues taking care of the puck as he committed three giveaways, but then again, he recorded a game-high 27 minutes of ice time in this latest win. Green has been a force for the Winged Wheel and his fantasy owners alike this season, tacking on one goal and 10 helpers through the first 12 games.

Green is currently tied with Alex Pietrangelo of the Blues and Philadelphia's Shayne Gostisbehere for the league lead in points by a defenseman at 11.

EDGE Analysis

The right-shooting rearguard appears highly motivated to produce in the early going, and it's safe to say that a driving force behind the surge is the fact that he's in a contract year. Green's occupying a whopping $6 million against the salary cap, and that's a huge chunk of change for a Detroit team that recently had to swing a couple of trades just to retain restricted free agent Andreas Athanasiou. It wouldn't be surprising to see Green traded at the next deadline, if not sooner.

Green scored his first goal of the season and recorded six shots during Monday's 3-2 loss to Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Green has three multi-point games this season with a goal and eight helpers through six games. He's posted four consecutive seasons with at least 35 points, and the veteran defenseman should be viewed as a high-floor asset and owned in most settings. The Red Wings are probably going to endure some negative regression in the wins and goals columns moving forward, but Green's offensive role should keep him fantasy relevant.

Green dished out two helpers, including one on the power play, in Thursday's 4-2 win over Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

That's eight assists in four games for Green, who's already more than a third of the way to last season's 72-game total of 22. Detroit only has 11 goals all season, so the veteran defenseman has been extremely influential despite failing to light the lamp himself up to this point. Green topped 70 points twice with the Capitals but has broken 40 only once since 2010-11, so his hot start has come out of left field after two pedestrian campaigns with the Red Wings.

Green set up a career-high four goals Thursday, contributing to a 4-2 home win over the Wild.

EDGE Analysis

Green's deft passing skills were on full display as the Red Wings officially opened the regular season at Little Caesars Arena, their new home. He's already accounted for roughly 18 percent of his assist total (22) from the 2016-17 campaign, when he played in 72 games and posted an abysmal minus-20 rating.

Green will be protected and unavailable to the Golden Knights in the upcoming expansion draft, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran rearguard will make a cool $6 million in each of the two seasons that remain on his contract before hitting unrestricted free agent status. However, he's off limits to the Vegas club since losing him would otherwise leave the Red Wings completely devoid of power-play quarterbacks.
