Saturday, 05.30.2015 / 10:30 PM / News

Nashville Predators captain Shea Weber is recovering as scheduled after having surgery on a dislocated kneecap six weeks ago.

"Just taking it day by day and following the protocol and getting better each day," Weber told USA Today this week.

Weber missed the final four games of the Western Conference First Round against the Chicago Blackhawks after injuring his knee while battling for a puck along the end boards with Blackhawks forward Brandon Saad in a 6-2 win in Game 2 on April 17. The Predators lost the series 4-2.

Weber was given a timeline of 4-6 weeks for his recovery after surgery.

"Everything's moving along as it should be," Weber said. "I've been in contact obviously with the guys in Nashville and the surgeon, and everything seems to be on schedule."

After 10 months and more than 90 games, the Oshawa Generals and Kelowna Rockets will play the final game of the Canadian Hockey League season Sunday in the championship game of the 2015 Memorial Cup in Quebec City (7 p.m. ET; NHLN-US).

Kelowna, the champions of the Western Hockey League, advanced to the championship game by defeating the host Quebec Remparts 9-3 on Friday.

"We're going in to play a team that's great defensively, so to have that outburst is good," Kelowna captain Madison Bowey (Washington Capitals) said Friday, according to the Canadian Press. "We're not going to get the chances we had tonight against Oshawa. It's going to be a two-way, hard-nosed game and whoever works harder and wants it more will win."
