Shea Weber has opted to get some rest rather than go to Russia to represent Canada at the World Championship.

Canada has already played five games at the tournament and Weber's season just came to an end this past Thursday. Weber had seven points and a minus-7 rating in 14 games during the playoffs. He also collected 20 goals, 51 points and a minus-7 rating over 78 games of the regular season.

Shea Weber struggled in Game 7's 5-0 loss to San Jose.

Nashville's top defense duo of Weber and Roman Josi were on the ice for all five goals against, which included three at even strength and two on the power play. "It was tough," Weber said. "It was a tough night, obviously. We're expected to (play) lots of minutes and play some good hockey, but I don't think we were at our best. It feels like we've let each other down. I know personally I could've been better, and it's hard. It's tough right now." It was uncharacteristic night of turnovers and poor decisions and it resulted in a relatively easy win for the Sharks.

Shea Weber and the Predators watched their season come to an end on Thursday night with a 5-0 loss to the Sharks in Game 7.

Weber led the Preds to their most successful playoff run in franchise history, but it was a bitter end at the Shark Tank. Weber was a minus-three on the evening, combining with fellow top-line defenseman Roman Josi for a minus-six rating. The 30-year-old may not have had the ideal end to his season, but the future is looking bright for the veteran star and his young, talented teammates.

It goes "to the player who exemplifies great leadership qualities to his team, on and off the ice, during the regular season." He is in the running for the award along with Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin and Islanders captain John Tavares. Weber hit the 20-goal and 50-point milestones for the third time in his career to help the Predators earn their second straight playoff berth. He started the 365 Pediatric Cancer Fund, with teammate Pekka Rinne, to raise money and donate tickets to patients at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt. Weber also hosts a golf tournament to help support the BC Cancer Society.

Shea Weber scored a goal and added an assist in Nashville's Game 3 win over San Jose on Tuesday.

He has seven points in 10 playoffs games now and was credited with the game winner. Filip Forsberg, James Neal, Colin Wilson scored the other goals and the Predators converted twice on the power play.

His power-play marker late in the second period held up as the winner. The Predators have a 2-0 series lead heading back to Nashville. "They're going to come out with an even better effort (Tuesday), so I don't think we can sit back here and dwell on anything we've done so far," said Weber. "It's just going to get harder."

Shea Weber set a franchise record Thursday when he posted his 183rd power-play point.

Weber tied former Predators defenseman Kimmo Timonen in Tuesday's win against Dallas and he took sole possession of the record against New Jersey.

Shea Weber will return to Nashville's blue line on Tuesday against Dallas.

Weber has missed the last three games with a lower body injury. Nashville's captain has posted yet another wonderful season with 15 goals and 36 points with 112 hits and 133 blocks in 60 games.
Mar 1 - 7:43 PM

Shea Weber (lower body) fully took part in Monday's practice, but he is still questionable for Tuesday's game against Dallas.

He doesn't want to return too quickly, but said he felt good after the session. "You don't want to leave your teammates hanging, but at the same time, you don't want to do something where you're going to be out a month later on in the season," said Weber. "Take care of it now and hopefully squash it before it really gets started."
