Weber scored his 13th goal -- and 10th on the man advantage -- to go along with an assist Thursday in a 6-3 loss to Philadelphia. Incredibly, this is the star blueliner's fourth career foray into double-digit power-play goals -- last year, only one blueliner (Oliver Ekman-Larsson) hit that mark, although Justin Faulk's actually leading Weber with a cool dozen this year. The Preds haven't had a good year, which has caused Weber's rating to take a plunge into career-worst territory, but he's simply too productive to let it get out of control. At 30 years old, he's not showing any signs of a real slowdown yet -- in fact, he's currently on pace to clear 50 points for the third time in his career.
Weber scored his ninth power-play goal of the season while playing 29:11 in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Flames. Weber has scored nine of his 12 goals this season with the man advantage, with his deadly slap shot more than living up to its reputation. The Predators continue to lean on their captain in all situations, as the veteran defenseman has logged north of 26 minutes in each of his last five appearances.
Weber delivered two assists, one of which came on the power play, in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Wild. He has three points -- all assists -- in his last two games. Weber's quietly on pace for a 20-goal, low-50s point total this season with a copious number of power-play points. He already has 17 of his 29 points with the man advantage and those have come in 45 games. Weber had just 15 points there in 78 games last season, but is on route right now to come close to his career mark in power-play production (26 points in 2013-14). His contributions continue to be elite. Deploy accordingly.
Weber tacked on a goal in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Blues. At the rate Weber's producing offensively, he could wind up with 57 points this campaign. He already has 11 goals, putting him on pace to light the lamp a career-best 24 times.
Weber scored his 10th goal of the season and added two assists in Monday's win over the Canadiens. Weber is heating up on a Nashville team that has won back-to-back games, collecting six points in his last three games. He's been very active on the blueline of late, firing five shots on goal Monday and being credited with 11 shots on goal over his last three outings. With 25 points in 34 games, the 30-year-old is once again proving to be one of the most reliable fantasy blueliners around.
