The Noon Number: Snakebitten Blueliner

Perry Nelson-USA TODAY Sports

Looking at the, uh, rarefied air kept by a certain defenseman who does not have a goal, and not for lack of trying.

0 - Number of players in the NHL who have taken more shots this season than Mike Green without scoring a goal. Both Green and Winnipeg's Zach Bogosian have fired a cool 49 goalless shots so far this year, although Bogosian has played in one more game. Green's 18 goalless games are the longest stretch of futility to start a season he's ever experienced.

We're rooting for ya, big guy. Keep pullin' that trigger. Maybe have a chat with Jason Chimera, who almost shared this same dubious accolade last season?
