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. Aug 9 - 10:06 AM

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.

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.

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.

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.

Shea Weber recorded a goal and an assist in Nashville's 4-1 victory over Buffalo.

His 16th goal of the 2013-14 campaign held up as the game winner. He wired a wrister behind Sabres netminder Jhonas Enroth, which prompted coach Barry Trotz's praise. "Everybody thinks about the slap shot, but probably (Weber's) wrist shot is, to me, his most effective shot," Trotz said. "When he gets in there on top of the circles and snaps it off, it's the most effective, and I think he can place it better. But he can loosen you up with a couple of slap shots, I know that." Weber has amassed 42 points in 63 matches this year.

The Nashville Predators aren't interested in trading Shea Weber.

"We’re not trading Shea. We've told that to everybody. People ask and it’s their right to ask, but we're not trading him," Predators GM David Poile said. Nashville committed to a 14-year, $110 million contract with Weber after the defenseman signed an offer sheet with Philadelphia. We're only in the second year of that contract and it would be surprising if Poile was already shopping him.

Shea Weber anchored Canada's shutdown of the American offense Friday afternoon, leading the team with 21:39 in ice time during the team's successful stifling of the tournament's best offense.

The entire Canadian team has grown into Mike Babcock's defensive strategy, as Canada has allowed just three goals through five games in Sochi. Babcock brought in former Edmonton Oilers and Swiss national team coach Ralph Krueger, employing him to teach the Canadians how to maul offenses using the bigger-than-usual international ice surface. The results have improved each game, as demonstrated by Friday's impressive display led by Weber, Duncan Keith, Drew Doughty and Alex Pietrangelo.

Shea Weber tallied the game-winning goal for Canada in a 2-1 decision against Latvia in Olympic play on Wednesday.

He scored on a Canadian power play with a little more than half of the third period in the books. Drew Doughty and Jonathan Toews assisted on his third marker of the tournament. Patrick Sharp had the team's other goal in the win. Canada will move on to play the United States in semifinal action on Friday.

Shea Weber has been excellent for Nashville this season and he's carried over that superb play into the Olympic Games.

"He has the ability to elevate his game and he is peaking at the right time," said his agent, Jarret Bousquet. "Everything is coming together at the right time, and I would agree, this is the best hockey I've seen him play." Weber has recorded two goals and two assists in three games for Canada. He's also been great in his own end. Weber has been a runner-up for the Norris Trophy two times before and he'll get plenty of consideration for the award at the end of this season.

Shea Weber is off to a hot start in Sochi with two goals and an assist through Canada's first two games.

The Preds' captain has simply been superb playing with Duncan Keith on the Canadian blueline. Weber notched six points in seven games during the 2010 Olympics, so it seems he handles the big stage pretty well. He is currently second on the Canadian roster in ice time, averaging just under 20 minutes per game.
Feb 14 - 7:36 PM

Shea Weber's decision to play Friday night could not have been sweeter, as he scored twice including the overtime winner in Preds' 3-2 victory over the Devils.

Battling an upper body injury, Weber posted his first two goal game of the year and notched his 38th point in 53 games.
