Weber (upper body) will miss the remainder of the regular season but is expected to return for the start of the playoffs, per coach Dominique Ducharme, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports. Weber last suited up April 28, so he may have to deal with some rust when he returns for the postseason. The veteran defenseman will finish the regular season with six goals and 13 assists in 48 appearances.
According to Arpon Basu of The Athletic, head coach Dominique Ducharme doesn't expect Weber (upper body) to return on the team's current road trip. The Canadiens have four road games -- in Ottawa on Wednesday and in Toronto for three contests -- between now and Saturday, which effectively rules Weber out until May 10 against the Oilers, at the earliest. The veteran blueliner has missed three games thus far with the injury.
