Kings defenseman Matt Greene was placed on injured reserve Monday due to a back injury and could miss the remainder of the season. 

The move is retroactive to Saturday, Jan. 19 -- when Greene suffered the injury against the Blackhawks in the Kings' season opener.

TSN reported Monday night that Greene will be out for the season.
