23 March 2018 01:43

Detroit Red Wings defenseman Mike Green will undergo surgery on his cervical spine, the NHL team announced on Thursday.

Green will undergo the surgery on April 5 and is expected to be sidelined for two months. 

The 32-year-old missed seven games in February after a hit from the Tampa Bay Lightning's Adam Erne.

He was able to return to the ice on March 2 but re-aggravated the injury during practice in Detroit on Wednesday.

Green played in 66 games this season for the Red Wings (27-35-11), recorded eight goals and 25 assists while registering a minus-14 with 38 penalty minutes. 

He is in the final year of his contract and was a trade candidate before the injury.
