Shea Weber (knee) skated in full gear on Thursday.
Weber is out indefinitely after undergoing knee surgery during the offseason, but this is a step in the right direction for the Canadiens captain. Habs GM Marc Bergevin has already said that he expects Weber to play in 2018. He's expected to be ready to return around Christmas. Getting a healthy Weber back will be huge for a Canadiens team that's already thin on defense. Oct 11 - 11:05 AM

Shea Weber has been named the newest captain of the Montreal Canadiens.

Weber is the 30th captain in Montreal's franchise history. Max Pacioretty, who wore the "C" for the previous three seasons, was traded before the start of the 2018-19 campaign. Paul Byron and Brendan Gallagher will serve as alternate captains. Weber had an injury-plagued year in 2017-18 and he won't be available until at least mid-December following knee surgery.

Shea Weber won't rush himself back from off-season knee surgery.

"I hope to return earlier, but if it's another four months, it's another four months," Weber told NHL.com on Monday. "I've got to do what's right for myself long term. For me to come back too soon and get hurt again, that doesn't help anybody." He was limited to just 26 appearances last season because of a foot injury and thought he would be ready for training camp, but a meniscal tear was discovered in his right knee.

Shea Weber has undergone surgery to repair a meniscal tear in his right knee.

Weber is expected to miss the next five to six months after he had the procedure on June 19, which translates to him being projected to miss roughly the first half of the 2018-19 campaign with a return possibly by mid-December. It has to be difficult news for Montreal and Weber to swallow after he was limited to just 26 games last season. "We were very disappointed to learn that this knee injury will extend Shea's recovery period. Unfortunately, this is out of our control and we have to fully trust the medical group in these situations. We are confident that his recovery will go as scheduled and that Shea will return to action as soon as possible," said Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin.

Shea Weber confirmed on Tuesday that his foot was fractured during the first game of the season on Oct. 5 in Buffalo.

Weber suffered the injury when he was struck by a shot, but he played in 15 consecutive games afterward until he was forced to sit one contest because of an unrelated injury. He was in and out of the lineup after that for a while before he was shut down. Weber ended up having surgery to repair two tendons in his left foot. He hopes to be ready for training camp in the fall.

Shea Weber's recovery from surgery to repair tendons in his left foot could be closer to four months rather than six, according to sources.

"It could take four-to-five months," said one source. "But, if all goes well, it should be closer to four. That’s why the Canadiens are 100 per cent certain he will be ready and in top shape for the start of next training camp." The Canadiens announced on March 13 that Weber would need six months of recovery time, so a quicker timetable is at least some good news in what was a difficult year for the veteran blueliner.
Mar 26 - 5:20 PM

Shea Weber underwent surgery Tuesday to repair tendons in his left foot.

Weber is expected to need six months to recover, so he should be available for training camp in the fall. He was limited to just 26 games this season and he contributed 16 points, while averaging a team-high 25:20 of ice time per contest.
Mar 14 - 11:08 AM

Shea Weber will undergo foot surgery to repair a torn tendon.

Weber has been ruled out for the rest of the season as a result. The original hope was that Weber would be able to recover through rehab alone, which would have enabled him to play again in 2017-18. However, progress wasn't being made and it was determined after further examination that surgery was the way to go. Weber was limited to 26 games this season.
Feb 22 - 1:04 PM

Shea Weber (foot) remains on the sidelines and it's unclear if he will play before the end of the regular season.

Coach Claude Julien said that Weber isn't feeling comfortable yet with his rehab from a foot injury, so he has been shut down from skating again. The team won't put him back in the lineup until he is 100 percent and time is running out on the 2017-18 season. The veteran blueliner hasn't played since Dec. 16 and the Canadiens have 24 matches left on the schedule.
Feb 20 - 10:22 AM

Shea Weber has ditched his walking boot, according to Canadiens head coach Claude Julien.

Weber has been out of the lineup with a foot injury since Dec. 16. Although this is a positive step in his recovery, Julien admitted that he's still out indefinitely. The 32-year-old has six goals and 16 points in 26 games this season. The struggling Canadiens could certainly use him right now, but with the playoffs so far out of sight, they shouldn't rush to bring him back. His fantasy owners should keep that in mind.
Feb 3 - 9:40 AM

Shea Weber (foot) won't be back on Tuesday night.

Weber did not travel with the team to St. Louis. He is still out indefinitely with a foot injury. Weber hasn't played since Dec. 16.
Jan 29 - 5:46 PM

It appears the Montreal Canadiens will be without the services of Shea Weber until after the All-Star break.

Head coach Claude Julien spoke to the media today and said his star blueliner is doubtful to return before the annual NHL festivities. Weber has 16 points in 26 games this season and has missed the last seven games due to his foot injury. The Canadiens can't catch a break and this season could get ugly.
Jan 3 - 1:57 PM

Coach Claude Julien still doesn't have a timetable for Shea Weber's return from a foot injury.

Weber did not suffer a broken bone, which is the good news, but he hasn't played for the last six games.
Jan 2 - 10:27 AM

Shea Weber (foot) probably won't be back in the lineup this week.

There have been no updates on Weber's status since he was shut down with a foot injury, but he wasn't expected to travel with the team on their three-game road trip down south. Weber hasn't played since Dec. 16 and we will let you know if his condition changes.
Wed, Dec 27, 2017 09:30:00 AM

Shea Weber (foot) isn't expected to play during Montreal's three-game road trip this week in Western Canada.

Weber is also considered questionable at this point for games at Carolina and in Florida after Christmas. He was shut down by the team after his ailing foot wasn't getting better. Weber is back in Montreal to consult with the team's doctors and a return date is unclear.
