Shea Weber tallied two assists, one on the power play, in Nashville's 5-1 win over Arizona on Thursday night.

Weber now has 11 assists and 17 points on the season. He may not be racking up the points like we're accustomed to seeing, but 17 points in 28 games is nothing to complain about either.

Shea Weber earned three assists in Nashville's blowout win over Toronto on Tuesday night.

He posted a plus-3 rating and four hits in a 9-2 victory. Weber has 11 points 18 games this season.

Despite a 5-1-2 start to the season, the Nashville Predators have struggled on the power play this season.

The Preds are one of only six teams in the NHL to have scored two goals or fewer on the man-advantage so far this season. Nashville's power play is ranked 26th in the NHL at just 7.7 percent. "Our special teams have to be better, we know that," Predators captain Shea Weber said. "It's a big part of the game, and it has to get better."

Shea Weber power-play tally was the sole goal for the Predators in their 2-1 loss to the Blackhawks on Saturday night.

Weber flat-out ripped this one, for his third goal and fourth point of the season. He also had two penalty minutes. A durable defenseman with one of the fiercest shots in the game and now on an offense under Peter Laviolette that is trying to open it up a bit more, Weber could reach the 60-point mark for the first time in his career. Mike Ribeiro and Colin Wilson had two helpers.

Shea Weber netted a goal and had an assist in the Predators’ 4-1 win over the Stars on Saturday night.

Weber and Roman Josi, who also scored, both finished with plus-four ratings, too. Weber has two goals on the year, and another 20-plus goal season is certainly quite possible, especially with the more offensively oriented Peter Laviolette behind the bench. Eric Nystrom had a goal and two helpers, while Paul Gaustad recorded a goal and an assist.

Shea Weber scored the go-ahead goal on a backhand wraparound midway through the third period to lead the Predators over the Senators 3-2 on Thursday night.

The rock solid defender scored 23 goals and led Nashville in points last season with 56, and seemed in his element to kick off the year against Ottawa. Weber should contend for a top-three spot in fantasy production amongst defensemen this season.

Nashville defenseman Shea Weber has received the highest rating for blueliners in the newest iteration of EA Sports' NHL hockey game.

The acclaim likely won't provide much comfort to Weber after he placed third in Norris Trophy voting, the third time he has finished in the top three, but it definitely signals the respect he has earned around the league. Weber remains one of the top fantasy commodities in the game.

Shea Weber has now fallen just shy of winning the Norris Trophy three times.

Weber finished third in the voting in 2014 after coming in second in 2011 and 2012. He had a terrific season and excelled offensively with 23 goals and 56 points in 79 games. He should remain one of the league's top defensemen for years to come.

Nashville GM David Poile is not looking to trade Shea Weber.

"We're keeping him, we're building our franchise around him," Poile said Wednesday in an attempt to put an end to any lingering rumors. "I think we've got one of the best young defenses in the league. I think he's got an excellent chance of winning the Norris Trophy in 11 or 12 days from now. Why wouldn't we build our team around him? That's exactly what we're doing." Weber is a finalist for the Norris Trophy and he led the team in scoring with 56 points in 79 games.

Shea Weber has been nominated for the James Norris Memorial Trophy.

He led all NHL rearguards with 23 goals and finished first on the Predators with 56 points in 79 games. Weber also led all blueliners with 12 power-play markers and he ranked fourth in the league in average ice time per match (26:54). He was runner-up for the Norris in 2010-11 and 2011-12.
Apr 28 - 2:05 PM

Shea Weber scored his 23rd goal of the season in the Predators' last game of the year on Sunday.

That ties the personal high he set in 2008-09. Weber concluded this past campaign with a career high 56 points in 79 games. "If he doesn't win the Norris this year it's going to be an absolute crime," former coach Barry Trotz said.

Shea Weber had a goal and an assist in a 7-5 win over Chicago on Saturday.

Weber has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last six games. He leads all defensemen with 22 goals and is tied for fourth place with 55 points in 78 contests.
Apr 13 - 10:57 AM

Shea Weber notched a pair of goals for the Predators in a 6-1 drubbing of the Sabres Thursday night.

The beastly defenseman has now scored 20 goals on the season, marking the second time he has reached this plateau in his career. The Predators also received contributions from Eric Nystrom, Colton Sissons, Calle Jarnkrok and Colin Wilson in the victory.
Mar 27 - 11:53 PM

Shea Weber's 2013-14 performance has impressed long-time coach Barry Trotz.

"He's not getting the accolades across the league that he would if we were a little higher in the standings, but it's by far his best season in terms of production," Trotz said. "And we're basically breaking in five defensemen, maybe four ... and he's having a terrific season. So to me, he's having by far his best season as a Predator, as a pro." Weber has registered 18 goals and 46 points in 70 games. His minus-9 rating has been misleading because of Nashville's struggles.
