The Nashville Predators announced Friday that Captain Shea Weber
will miss the remainder of the club’s Western Conference Quarterfinal series against the Chicago Blackhawks due to a lower-body injury the defenseman suffered in Game Two of the series. However, contrary to erroneous broadcast and media reports over the last 24 hours, he did not suffer an ACL injury. Further updates will be provided as they become available.
The Predators face the Blackhawks in Game Six on Saturday from the United Center in Chicago (7 p.m. CT, NBC). Chicago leads the best-of-seven series three games to two.
