News: Green scored his third goal in Wednesday's loss at Edmonton. Impact: Green has three goals and three assists through five games and is a plus-four.(STATS, 2:41pm)

News: Green found the back of the net in Wednesday's loss to the Oilers. Impact: Green has looked like the high-scoring blueliner of yore in the early stages of the season, as he's already posted three goals and three assists over five games. Injuries are a perpetual concern for the blueliner, but when he's healthy, few defensemen in the league offer as much offensive upside.(RotoWire, )

News: Green was credited with his second and third assists of the season in Thursday's win versus New Jersey. Impact: Green has two goals and three assists in his first three games.(STATS, 2:04pm)

News: Green picked up a pair of assists in Thursday's win over the Devils. Impact: Though he's already missed a game to injury, Green's been terrifically productive when on the ice, having racked up five points and a plus-3 rating through three games. The sledding's been tough for the injury-prone blueliner over the last few years, but it's clear that his skills haven't faded -- at least, when he's healthy.(RotoWire, )

News: Green notched a goal, an assist, and attempted three shots in Tuesday's 6-5 shootout loss to San Jose. Impact: The former Norris Trophy candidate is off to a solid start to the season despite playing slightly reduced minutes after the arrival of Matt Niskanen and Brooks Orpik in free agency this summer. Given his inconsistency, and perhaps more importantly his injury history, Green is a boom or bust type of fantasy defenseman. As long as he's healthy and getting power-play time with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom, he's worth playing every night.(RotoWire, )

News: Green (upper body) notched a goal in his return to the ice Saturday against the Bruins. Impact: The puck-moving blueliner vaulted the Capitals to a 3-0 lead on a one-timer past goalie Tuukka Rask, while the team was riding the man-advantage. The upper-body injury sidelined Green for only one game, but health is an annual concern for the 29-year-old. He should still rank among the better fantasy producers at his position on a per-game basis.(RotoWire, )

News: Green (upper body) was on the ice for morning skate and appears set to return to make his season debut Saturday vs. the Bruins, Alan May of CSN Washington reports. Impact: Though Green was generally expected to play in Thursday's opener, his upper-body injury proved more problematic than initially thought, resulting in his being scratched. It appears he's since made progress in the last two days, which should allow him to slot back in on the team's third pairing next to Nate Schmidt. Green is expected to take a back seat in ice time this season following the July additions of Matt Niskanen and Brooks Orpik in free agency, but he should still offer above-average offense from the blue line when healthy.(RotoWire, )
