Jeff Blashill, the leading candidate to replace Mike Babcock as coach of the Detroit Red Wings, met with general manager Ken Holland this week to discuss the job, the Detroit Free Press reported Saturday.
Holland said he is waiting until Blashill is done coaching the Grand Rapids Griffins in the American Hockey League Calder Cup playoffs to name a coach.
"We're not going to announce anything until the playoffs are over, out of respect for Jeff and the players," Holland said.
Holland said he hasn't interviewed anyone but Blashill, 41.
"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."
Connor McDavid, who is projected to be the top pick in the 2015 NHL Draft, was named the Canadian Hockey League Sportsnet Player of the Year on Saturday.
It was one of three awards won by McDavid, who plays center for the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League.
He also won the Jack Link's Top Prospect of the Year award and the Subway Scholastic Player of the Year award.
The awards were handed out as part of the 2015 Memorial Cup in Quebec City, Quebec.
McDavid was third in the OHL with 120 points and tied for fourth with 44 goals in 47 regular-season games. He had nine fewer points than League-leader and Erie teammate Dylan Strome despite playing 21 fewer games.
We've got to find a way to win a game. He's played well in the minors, now he gets his opportunity. We tried [with Jonathan Bernier]. The way I look at it, you get opportunities and you make the most of it. That's what [James Reimer] did. Now another opportunity is here and Sparks ... you gotta grab it. Is he ready? We'll find out.
