It’s a Mystery: Kings’ Greene is ‘banged up’


We’ve gone from lower-body and upper-body injuries to, well, mystery injuries.

Take the case of L.A. Kings defenseman Matt Greene, who did not take part in the team’s practice on Wednesday.

The nature of Greene’s current ailment is unknown. It’s perplexing for Kings’ head coach Darryl Sutter, who tried to relay information to the curious minds.

“Matt Greene’s banged up. It’s like Mystery Valley for me. It goes from legs to limbs to head. I don’t know what you’d call it, if it’s maintenance,” said Sutter, as per LA Kings Insider.

Greene, 30, has two goals and three points in 15 games.

He played in L.A.’s last game, which was Saturday against the Nashville Predators. The Kings are back in action Thursday, when they host the Buffalo Sabres.

It remains unclear if Greene will be available for this game.
