Just as the LA Kings were boarding their plane and heading off to Colorado this afternoon it was announced that defenseman Matt Greene had been placed on injured reserve (retroactive to January 19) and Andrew Bodnarchuk was called up from Manchester as a roster replacement.

And that’s when things quickly spun out of control.

Although coach Darryl Sutter had described it as a ‘mid-body’ injury, it was in fact his back.
Several reports went on to say that Greene would likely miss the remainder of the season. However, MayorsManor has checked into that claim and our sources say he’s estimated to be out 6-12 weeks, depending on how he heals. It remains unclear at the moment if he’s having surgery though.

The only thing the club has said about the injury is – “Matt Greene was placed on IR today due to a mid-body injury. As for recovery time-frame, we plan for the worst and hope for the best.”

We have a more detailed look at the Kings’ situation on defense, including notes and quotes about Willie Mitchell’s knee injury and rookie Jake Muzzin’s expected debut posted here.

From what we’ve gathered, it looks like Mitchell might play as early as Thursday vs. Edmonton or perhaps Saturday in Phoenix.
