Greene, Kings Reach Agreement On Four-Year Deal

News: Matt Greene finalized a four-year, $10 million contract extension with the Kings on Tuesday, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: The news first surfaced about the Kings trying to work out a long-term extension with Matt Greene on Monday, and it appears that the two sides have put pen to paper on a new pact. With just six points in 38 games in 2013-14, Greene doesn't see much involvement on the attack, but his 118 hits prorate to 254 over a full 82-game season. That hit total would have placed him in the league's top 10, had he not missed over half the season due to injury.

Kings, Greene Close To Contract Extension

News: Matt Greene and the Kings are reportedly close to agreeing to a four-year contract extension, LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Matt Greene's previous contract is set to expire July 1, and the defending champs are looking to re-sign their alternate captain. Although Greene has not officially signed the extension, he appears poised to do so in the coming days. The 31-year-old blueliner recorded six points and 47 PIM in 38 regular-season games last year.

Kings' Greene Gets Two Helpers, Goes Plus-3 Sunday

News: Matt Greene finished with two assists and a plus-3 rating in Sunday's Game 7 victory over the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Matt Greene also registered a team-leading six hits on defense, with the Sunday's game going down as his best all-around performance of the postseason. The defenseman has totaled just one point in his other 14 games of the playoffs, and will be largely tasked with propping up with the suddenly cold Jonathan Quick in the Stanley Cup Finals against the Rangers.

Kings' Greene Back In Lineup

News: Matt Greene is slated to replace the injured Willie Mitchell in Wednesday's Game 7 against the Sharks, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Kings' Greene Returns After Getting Stitched Up

News: Matt Greene (cut) quickly returned to Saturday's game after being stitched up by arena doctors, according to CBC's Hockey Night in Canada.
Analysis: He's one tough dude. We don't know how many stitches or where the cut actually is, but there was a lot of blood. Good to see him back so fast.

Kings' Greene Foot Bloodied, Leaves Game

News: Matt Greene left Saturday's game at the mid-point of the third period after sustaining some kind of cut on his ankle or foot, according to CBC's Hockey Night in Canada.
Analysis: There's no word on the type or severity of the injury, but the Canucks' team doctor was called to the Kings' dressing room immediately. The game had to be stopped to clean the ice near the Kings' crease and close-up footage showed Matt Greene's foot quite bloodied. He'd just blocked a Jason Garrison shot using his ankle and then took down Ryan Kesler in the crease.

Kings' Greene Returns From Concussion

News: Matt Greene, who had been sidelined since Jan. 13 with a concussion, logged nearly 18 minutes of ice time in his return Monday.
Analysis: Matt Greene isn't going to factor into things too much on the offensive end, but he did block four shots and record five hits in his return.

Kings' Greene Resumes Working Out

News: Matt Greene (head) has resumed working out off the ice, Jon Rosen of LAKingsInsider.com reports.
Analysis: Matt Greene still has yet to receive clearance to begin skating, as he remains under the NHL's concussion protocol. There is no definitive timetable for his return until he resumes practicing.

Kings' Greene Out For Road Trip

News: Matt Greene (concussion) will not join the team on its upcoming four-game road trip, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: The Kings are officially labeling Matt Greene's injury as an upper-body ailment, but reports earlier in the day that he was being evaluated for a head injury lead us to believe that he's dealing with a concussion. Greene had previously missed significant time earlier this season with a concussion, and he'll likely be forced to follow the league protocol just as thoroughly this time around.

Kings' Greene Being Evaluated For Concussion

News: Matt Greene is being evaluated for a concussion, Jon Rosen of LAKingsInsider.com reports.
Analysis: Matt Greene came to blows with the Canucks' Kevin Bieksa with 8:28 left in the second period and didn't return to the game after being banished to the penalty box. It was the first game for the defenseman since Jan. 2, as Alec Martinez seems to have taken his over his spot on the third pairing in recent games.

Kings' Greene Returns From Injury

News: Matt Greene (upper body) returned to the lineup for the first time since early November in a 3-1 loss to Chicago on Sunday.
Analysis: Matt Greene was inserted into the lineup for Willie Mitchell, who missed the game with an illness, so it's unclear whether Greene has earned a spot in the regular rotation when everyone is healthy. He's not much of a factor in most fantasy formats regardless.

Kings' Greene Not Expected To Play Wednesday

News: Matt Greene (upper body) is not expected to play Wednesday against the Maple Leafs, Helene Elliott of the LA Times reports.
Analysis: Matt Greene was activated off IR on Tuesday, but it appears that he's not yet ready to return to the lineup. He'll likely need a couple practices to get back into shape, but should return soon.

Kings Activate Greene From IR

News: Matt Greene (upper body) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday.
Analysis: With the Kings pleased with the progress Matt Greene has made over the last few weeks, he'll rejoin the 23-man roster. While he won't be used Tuesday against the Canadiens, expect Greene to reenter the lineup later this week.

Kings' Greene Ready To Return

News: Coach Darryl Sutter said Matt Greene (upper body) is now ready to play, Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Matt Greene demonstrated he was healthy during morning skate, but Sutter has no plans of using him in the lineup Tuesday night vs. the Canadiens, keeping him on IR a little longer. With the Kings set to play their second game of a back-to-back Wednesday in Toronto, it seems likely Greene could be activated at that time to grant another defenseman some rest.

Kings' Green Plans To Travel On Road Trip

News: Matt Greene (upper body) said that he plans on accompanying the team on its upcoming road trip, which begins Tuesday in Montreal, the LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: By no means is Matt Greene certain to return on the road trip, but it sounds like a possibility. The 30-year-old has been out since Nov. 2 with the upper-body injury and just recently resumed skating with the team.

Analysis: Matt Greene's missed the last 14 games and is getting closer to a return. The Kings embark on a stretch of four road games in six days starting Tuesday, which could complicate a possible return.

Kings' Greene Resumes Skating

News: Matt Greene (upper body) resumed skating Friday morning, Jon Rosen of LAKingsInsider.com reports.
Analysis: Matt Greene indicated he wasn't especially close to returning to game action, but his involvement in on-ice work Friday shows he's at least making some level of progress in his recovery. He might require another week or so of practices before he's activated from injured reserve.

Kings' Greene Headed For Long-Term IR

News: Matt Greene (upper body) is headed for long-term IR, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: An upper-body injury will put Matt Greene on the shelf for an extended period of time, but if there's any good news in this, it's that the injury is reportedly unrelated to the back surgery Greene had last season. He won't be eligible to return until Nov. 27.

Greene Remains Sidelined For Kings

News: Matt Greene (undisclosed) hasn't resumed skating and isn't close to a return, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Kings' Greene Doubtful To Play Thursday

News: Matt Greene is doubtful for Thursday's game agasint Buffalo according to head coach Darryl Sutter, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Analysis: Matt Greene is considered to be "banged up" thus the doubtful designation given to him for Thursday's game. It doesn't appear as if there is anything serious here so if Greene doesn't play Thursday, expect him to return shortly there after.
