NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Predators captain Shea Weber will not return after getting hurt late in the second period against the Edmonton Oilers with what the team is calling an upper body injury.
Weber dropped to the ice at 15:24 of the second Thursday night after apparently taking a puck to the face. The defenceman got up and skated immediately to the locker room.
He came into the game tied with Erik Karlsson of Ottawa, Torey Krug of Boston and Michael Stone of Phoenix for most goals among defencemen with seven, and Weber is the only defenceman leading his team in goals scored.
I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
