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.
You forget how good [Nieuwendyk] was. You hear the points and stuff and you almost forget until they kind of walk you through his career, and that was really cool for me. I might have felt it a little more than some of the other guys because he was one of my favorites growing up, but that was very cool and I'm honored to have been a part of it. I had chills the entire ceremony.
