Mike Green on the ice for Capitals’ practice

After two lengthy workouts earlier this week, Mike Green is on the ice with the rest of the Capitals and taking part in a regular practice for the first time since undergoing sports hernia surgery back on Jan. 17.

Green, who is nearing a return to the lineup, told reporters on Tuesday that he feels healthy for the first time in a long time. The defenseman has only appeared in 10 games this season, though, and knows he can’t rush his rehabilitation.

General Manager George McPhee recently estimated the defenseman could be back next week and maybe even as early as this weekend.

In addition to Green, all 21 players on Washington’s active roster are on the ice for practice. Check out the lines after the jump:
