Weber won't be playing for Team Canada in the World Championship next month, Arpon Basu of NHL.com reports.
In his first season with Montreal, Weber didn't quite hit his numbers from previous seasons, notching 42 points and 140 hits. That said, he's still one of the better offensive defenders in the league; expect him to provide serious fantasy value next season.
Weber scored a goal and tallied two assists in the first five games of the first round series against the Rangers.
Weber has averaged 28:35 of ice time this series, but this is partially because of two games that went to overtime. His power-play time has been significant over these five games, and that's where he scored his lone goal. Weber continues to be a solid option in DFS if the Canadiens can make a series comeback.
Weber (lower body) will definitely be ready for Montreal's first-round playoff series against the Rangers next week, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.
Weber, who will not play in the season-finale Saturday night in Detroit, will have missed four straight games to end the season, but coach Claude Julien is confident the defenseman will return for the playoffs.
Weber will focus on getting healthy for the postseason, rather than rushing back into the lineup for a pair of essentially meaningless contests. Prior to getting hurt, the blueliner had hit a bit of a rough patch, as he garnered a lone assist in his previous six outings. Until the 31-year-old is cleared to return, Brett Lernout will continue to fill in on the Habs' blue line.
Weber (lower body) is flying back to Montreal to meet with doctors and will miss the team's next two games, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
It had already been announced that the Habs' defensive stalwart would miss Monday's contest in Florida, but this news casts some doubt on Weber's health with the postseason fast approaching. Expect a further update on Weber's condition at some point during this week, with Nikita Nesterov stepping in to the lineup in the meantime.
