Getting out of town beneficial to Red Wings' Green

Training camp without the comforts of his own home is new to Detroit Red Wings defenseman Mike Green. It's also particularly necessary for him going into this season, his 11th in the NHL and first in Detroit after 10 seasons with the Washington Capitals.

Camping with the Red Wings in Traverse City, Mich., has given Green the opportunity to get to know his new teammates on a more personal basis without worrying about one of them rushing out of the rink to pick the kids up from school, or something similar.

Considering Green knew just about nobody on the team when he signed with the Red Wings, Traverse City has been a blessing for him.

Blackhawks' Dano gets chance on 'lottery line'

Chicago Blackhawks forward Marko Dano has impressed early in training camp and is relishing the chance to skate on the same line with Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa.

Dano, acquired in the offseason trade that sent Brandon Saad to the Columbus Blue Jackets, is 20 years old and has 35 games of NHL experience, but those facts may not prevent him from skating on the Blackhawks' top line when Chicago opens the season on Oct. 7 against the New York Rangers at United Center (NBCSN).

It's also been beneficial that Dano, like Hossa, hails from Slovakia.

"They're great players and there's a lot of what I can learn from them, so I'm real excited about being in a line with them," Dano told the Chicago Tribune on Sunday. "Hossa is basically helping with everything, what I need. He's a good veteran and also my countryman, so he's helping me out to get to know the guys. He's been real nice to me."

"He makes a lot of plays, Chiarelli said after the game according to the Oilers website. "His play without the puck has been good. I've been very happy with him and that line looks very good, including Ted on the other wing. He makes good plays. He's fast and he's had some back-checking and he’s been good with that. Every time he has the puck he makes a good play."

It's an incredible feeling just to see it go in and see the Joe go pretty crazy.  Ever since the introduction there, I was kind of feeling the nerves, and to put that one home, I started to feel comfortable and I thought my play started to pick up.
