Greene, Mitchell updates
General Manager Dean Lombardi provided updates on injured defensemen Matt Greene and Willie Mitchell at the St. Thomas Ice Arena in suburban Minneapolis earlier today.
Lombardi, on Matt Greene:
“I’d say he skated 15 minutes yesterday and I’d say the projection is a month.”
Lombardi, on Willie Mitchell:
“I’d say it’s a very long shot…There’s always ‘maybe’, but I think we’re convinced now he’s not going to play this year. Now, if he comes back, then it’s clearly a bonus.”
I’ll have more quotes and video from today’s practice, which included a team-wide opposite-hand scrimmage and a shootout competition.
