By The Numbers will highlight the Red Wings on-ice accomplishments during the first half of the 2015-16 season. For the next few days By The Numbers will profile a different player on the team, focusing on their statistical highs. Here is a look at rookie defenseman Mike Green.


Leads all Red Wings’ defensemen in assists. Has had three two-assist games this season, all on the road in victories at Ottawa (Nov. 16), Buffalo (Jan. 2) and Arizona (Jan. 14).


Is sixth among Atlantic Division defensemen in power-play assists, trailing Ottawa’s Erik Karlsson (17), Montreal’s P.K. Subban (16), Boston’s Torey Krug (11), Buffalo’s Rasmus Ristolainen (10), and teammate Niklas Kronwall (10).


Leads all Red Wings’ defensemen in shots on goal. However, his 1.9 shots per game are the lowest of his career since registering just 68 shots in 70 games during his first full season with the Washington Capitals in 2006-07.


Season-long point streak, collecting one assist in each of the Red Wings home wins over Buffalo, Arizona and Nashville to start the month of December.


Is tied with Niklas Kronwall for lead among team defensemen in power-play assists. Green is also second on the team in secondary assists with 10, one behind the team leader Pavel Datsyuk.


Scored his first goal as a Red Wing during a 3-2 home win over the Los Angeles Kings on Nov. 20. His unassisted goal came in his 14th game since joining the team as a free agent in the off season. The second-period goal gave Detroit a 2-1.
