Predators captain Shea Weber misses practice, listed day to day with upper body injury

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Predators captain Shea Weber is day to day with an upper body injury and did not skate Thursday in Nashville's first practice since the defenceman was hurt.

Weber left Tuesday night's 4-3 win at Winnipeg 3:28 into the third period and did not return. The Predators took Wednesday off, and Weber was not seen in the locker room after practice Thursday.

Weber is the Predators' second-leading scorer with 36 points, and he also is alternate captain for the Canadian Olympic hockey team for the Sochi Olympics. Weber has missed only three games this season.

Coach Barry Trotz says it will be a huge hole to fill if Weber can't play against the New Jersey Devils on Friday night.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
