Detroit Red Wings, Mike Green agree to terms on 2-year deal

NHL


The Detroit Red Wings have agreed to terms with defenseman Mike Green on a $10.75 million, two-year contract, the Associated Press reported Saturday.

Green, 32, will count $5.375 million against the salary cap over the next two seasons. Green is taking a pay cut from his previous $6 million salary to stay with the team.

Green was considered one of the top pending free-agent blueliners available after former teammate John Carlson re-signed with the Washington Capitals for $64 million over eight years.

Green put up eight goals — seven on the power play — and 25 assists for 33 points in 66 games before his season was cut short by a neck injury.

He has 142 goals and 322 assists for 464 points in 787 regular-season games with Detroit and Washington, with whom he was a two-time runner-up for the Norris Trophy as the NHL’s top defenseman.

After completing one offseason task by locking up Green, the Red Wings are expected to sign a goaltender and be active in adding up front when free agency begins Sunday at noon.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
