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. [...]]]> 5145455 Thu, 22 Feb 2018 13:10:06 EDT <![CDATA[Out for season]]> Weber is scheduled to undergo surgery on his left foot and will miss the balance of the 2017-18 campaign.

This is awful news for the Weber, the Canadians, and fantasy owners alike following the venerable rearguard's visit with a foot specialist Wednesday. It's been determined that he needs to go under the knife to repair a torn tendon. Weber is shutting it down having recorded six goals and 10 assists -- including five power-play points -- through 26 games this season. Acquired from Nashville in the P.K. Subban trade in June of 2016, Weber still has eight years left on a contract that comes with an annual cap hit of $7.85 million.

<![CDATA[Shea Weber (foot) remains on the sidelines and it's unclear]]> 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 and the team won't put him back in the lineup until he is 100 percent. [...]]]> 5144094 Tue, 20 Feb 2018 10:30:07 EDT <![CDATA[Shut down again]]> Weber (foot) has been shut down again and there is no table for his return, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Weber had started skating as part of his rehabilitation from a foot injury that's forced him to miss the last 25 games and 31 overall before being shut down for a second time. This could be viewed as a setback, or perhaps it's the team acknowledging the season is shot and getting Weber back to full health is paramount to making a run for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

<![CDATA[Not making trip]]> Weber (foot) will not join the team on its upcoming four-game road trip.

It seems the Habs rarely have good news when it comes to a potential return for Weber, as his absence will reach 26 games by the time the team returns to Montreal. When he was healthy, the defenseman notched 16 points in 26 outings and appeared to be poised for a solid 2017-18 campaign. Whenever the veteran is given the all-clear, look for David Schlemko or Victor Mete to be bumped from the lineup.
