Mike Weaver and Gabriel Dumont will both be healthy scratches in Thursday's game against the New York Rangers.
Weaver was acquired at the trade deadline last year, and he was a regular defenseman then. This year, he hasn't been able to crack the Habs' lineup too often. Dumont was called up from the minors earlier this week. He was called up because P.A. Parenteau (concussion) isn't available. Jan 29 - 7:06 PM

Mike Weaver will return to Montreal's rearguard on Saturday night against the New York Islanders.

Weaver hasn't played since Dec. 6th, a span of 14 games, due to a concussion. But now he's back and on the third defensive unit with Alexei Emelin. He may not be a scoring threat, but in 26 games Weaver did rack up 29 hits and 52 blocks.

Mike Weaver will continue to be held out of the lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jackets.

There was a chance Weaver was going to replace Alexei Emelin on the blue line but head coach, Michel Therrien elected to keep the same set of defense Wednesday. Weaver hasn't played in a game since December 6th and has four assists in 26 games this year. Look for him to get back in action soon though.

Mike Weaver will continue to sit as he works his way back from a concussion.

Weaver hasn't played since December 6th, and it doesn't seem as though he'll be playing again any time soon. Which may be telling of what the Habs think of Bryan Allen.
Jan 6 - 7:02 PM

Jan 2 - 6:20 PM

Mike Weaver and Bryan Allen are expected to be healthy scratches once again Tuesday night in Sunrise, Florida.

Don't look to either of these blue line vets for steady value, but Weaver can get you a couple of blocks in a spot-start as he has 52 blocks in 26 games this season.

Mike Weaver is expected to skate with Tom Gilbert on Montreal's third pairing on Friday night in Chicago.

"We expect more from Mike than the way he’s played recently because we know what he can bring to the lineup. Sometimes, sitting out can help a player. We hope he bounces back strong," Coach Therrien said of Weaver. Montreal may be near the top of the standings, but it appears their blue line has yet to be settled. Weaver leads the team with 651 blocked shots.

Mike Weaver might be a healthy scratch for Wednesday's game against Minnesota.
