L.A. Kings injured defenseman Matt Greene and forward Trevor Lewis took part in a skate with their teammates on Thursday.

That’s according to L.A. Kings Insider, which also added there is no timetable for their respective returns to the lineup.

“Greener started with the group, and I asked Lewie this morning if he wanted to skate,” Kings head coach Darryl Sutter said, as per L.A. Kings Insider.

“It was because there wouldn’t be contact, rather than doing the same thing out there himself. Obviously it’s not them, per se, it’s when we’re going to have a roster issue, and obviously a cap issue, and we go on a trip. We go east, so obviously all these guys aren’t going to be here.”

Greene hasn’t played since Nov. 2 with an upper-body injury. He was put on injured reserve in the middle of November.

Lewis has been out since Nov. 21 and was placed on injured reserve just two days after that with a lower-body injury.

    STAND DOWN FRIENDS … WE’VE GOT IT COVERED !

    Finally an article about the last team to win a Stanley Cup based on a ‘full’ 82 x game schedule eh ? Anyway, comrades Greene and Lewis have nothing to worry about, much like comrade Quick. We’ve now got a real ‘twist’ on these people and our Pacific Division rivals are ‘quivering’ in their brassieres as a result. On Saturday we’re going to ‘liquidate’ Wang and crew and from there, the ‘sky’s the limit’ for us !

    GO KINGS GO !!! … TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOREVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    L.A. Is not a good hockey town thanks to the media here. I have been a kings fan since 1971 and a season ticket holder for 37 years. The kings have a loyal core of fans who are second to none in the league. They sell out every game and are by far the most loyal and vocal of sports fans in this town. But because of the media hockey is still at the bottom of the barrel. The Lakers get more coverage on an off night than the kings do if they were playing the ducks at Staples Center. Even the Clippers come before the Kings. Not to mention USC & UCLA football and basketball. It had been this way for as long as I can remember. And at places such as the gym or a sports bar the topic is always the Lakers. (I detest basketball and the Lakers even more so!). I have been to every NHL town in the league and nowhere does the NHL get as little respect as in LA. What a shame.
