Green out Indefinitely

The Caps received more bad news regarding one of their defensemen. Rookie Mike Green, injured last night when he blocked a slap shot with his foot, is out indefinitely. As a result, the team plans to summon prospect Jeff Schultz from Hershey of the AHL.

X-Rays came back negative last night, but General Manager George McPhee said today at practice that the 21-year-old will be re-examined in the next few days.

Green, who is averaging 16:35 of ice time and is tied for third on the team with a plus-minus rating of plus-5, is the latest Caps defenseman to go down with a foot injury. Bryan Muir and John Erskine each have been out a month with a broken foot.

Green's injury couldn't come at worse time for the Capitals, who have lost three games in a row and head to Raleigh, N.C., for a critical Southeast Division matchup with the Hurricanes on Thursday.

More on Green in tomorrow's paper.
