Welcome to Caps 'Round the Clock, a blog covering the Washington Capitals and the NHL. In season, I update the Blog after every practice and on game day with Caps news and information, and then provide a recap and analysis after each contest. I also write a periodical Prospect Watch and weekly feature pieces on the state of the Men in Red and other things Capitals. And of course, I will post videos and tidbits from around the League and offer my two cents as the season wears on. In the offseason, I write a Report Card for each player, and will keep you updated on all the news about the Caps through the summer. I'm glad you're here, and hope you come back!

Mike Green Out Four-to-Six Weeks

The Washington Capitals annoucned Monday that All-Star defenseman Mike Green, who has missed 33 of the team's 43 games this season, will be out four-to-six weeks as he undergoes abdominal surgery.
Green, who has been out for the majority of the last three months with a groin injury, has led the Capitals to a 9-1-0 record while he is in the lineup. Washington placed him on long-term injured reserve earlier in the week, which would have meant that the earliest he could re-join the team was February 1st. He will not be able to play now for at least two weeks beyond that, and probably much longer.
The abdominal surgery does have the goal of fixing Green's groin problem; this is not believed to be a aurgery that is the direct result of a new injury.
The Calgary, Alberta native has three goals and three assists in his ten games this year.
