Weber returns to practice for Nashville
Predators captain Shea Weber practiced for the first time since being diagnosed with a concussion last month.
Nashville captain Shea Weber returned to practice Tuesday for the first time since suffering a concussion on Dec. 23.

The news was broken by the Predators on the team's official twitter feed. There is still no timetable for his return.

The Norris Trophy finalist and potential restricted free agent has been having an impressive year for the Predators, tallying 8 goals and 21 assts while registering a plus-14. At the time of his injury he was on pace for roughly 68 points, a number that would shatter his career high of 53 points in the 2008-09 season.

Weber has missed four games so far since being diagnosed with the concussion. Nashville has managed to win three of four games without him and is currently six points behind the Central Division-leading Blackhawks.
Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
