Weber (eye) will skate tomorrow with the team and will travel to Washington and New York.
Weber will wear a visor when he returns to action, whether or not that is Saturday in Washington remains to be seen. He will miss his third consecutive game tonight and should be considered questionable for the weekend, but monitor his status closely because if he plays he should be activated in all formats. Weber is tied for the NHL lead in goals by defesemen with seven.
Weber will likely miss a couple of games, which will hurt the Predators, but it could have been much worse. He is obviously out tonight and should be considered questionable for Tuesday's contest with the Canucks.
No sign of Shea Weber (face) at the Predators morning skate, which means no Weber vs. the Flyers.
Weber took a puck in the face on Thursday and did not return to the game. The injury was near his eye which is always a scary scene, especially when it is your team's best player. He has been listed as day-to-day by the Predators so he is not expected to be out long-term at this point. Seth Jones will likely slide onto the top-pair with Roman Josi while Weber is sidelined.
Weber was hit close to his eye in Thursday's loss to the Oilers. The Predators are going to wait unti Saturday before they decide if he can play. It was a scary looking incident so it is good that he is labeled as just day-to-day.
Concussed defenseman Shea Weber is taking part in light skating by himself today, according to the Predators. There is still no timetable for his return from a concussion sustained Dec. 23 against the Dallas Stars. From what we know, this is his first time on ice since Mark Fistric slammed him high in that game.
Weber is certainly taking the first step towards his recovery. While the Preds captain still has no timetable, skating today is certainly a step in the right direction.
ST. LOUIS Here is today’s Shea Weber news. A little more positivity coming from the Predators on their captain. According to Coach Barry Trotz, Weber is making some strides. He also said Weber may have gotten to a point where he can ride the exercise bike.
Definitely a good update coming out of Nashville but you can expect him to miss a few more games. Sounds like the original prognosis of a return tonight was premature.
