Shea Weber extended his point streak to three games with a goal and an assist in Monday's 3-1 win over Philadelphia.

Shea Weber scored his first goal as a Montreal Canadien in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Arizona Coyotes.

Weber's first goal was exactly how you'd imagine it, a blast from the point on the power play. He also picked up an assist on rookie Artturi Lehkonen's third period goal that made it 5-2. Weber also threw his weight around quite a bit in this game. The 31-year-old finished the game with plus-3 rating, four shots on goal, three hits and four blocked shots in 25:28 of ice time. Alexei Emelin, Torrey Mitchell and Alex Galchenyuk also scored for Montreal.

Shea Weber has averaged a team-leading 26:45 of ice time after two games with Montreal.

That's the seventh-highest total in the league. Weber has also earned an assist in both appearances. "I really like what I saw," coach Michel Therrien said. "We all do. This guy means business. This guy is a true leader and he's a tough guy to play against. Nothing but good things to say about this man. We knew what we were going to get and this is exactly what we got." Weber has been paired with Nathan Beaulieu.

This was Weber's first game as a member of the Montreal Canadiens. He'd been rested since returning from the World Cup. The veteran finished the game with a plus-2 rating and seven shots on goal in 23:45 of ice time. Look for Weber to help a Montreal power play that's been anemic during the last couple of seasons. Weber scored 20 goals and 51 points with the Preds last season.

Shea Weber and Carey Price were back in Montreal on Monday for physicals.

Alex Galchenyuk believes Shea Weber is one of the toughest players to play against.

Thankfully for Galchenyuk, he won't have to go up against Weber anymore because the two became teammates this off-season. "We don't play [the Predators] that often, it was only twice a year, but I remember last year he hit me close to the boards and I couldn't feel my legs for like three days," Galchenyuk said. "And when he's teeing up for a slap shot, you don't want to be in that lane to block a shot. If you really think about it, who's one of the toughest guys to play against, he'd definitely be first on my list."

Shea Weber will be in Montreal this Tuesday at the Michel Therrien Golf Invitational at Le Mirage in Terrebonne.

Andrew Shaw, Max Pacioretty, Torrey Mitchell, David Desharnais, Mark Barberio, Nathan Beaulieu, Paul Byron, Phillip Danault and Stefan Matteau will also take part in the tournament hosted by their coach. This will give Weber a chance to speak to the media for the first time and meet some of his teammates since he was acquired from Nashville at the end of June.

Shea Weber hasn't come to Montreal since he was acquired from Nashville in exchange for P.K. Subban, but his agent insists that nothing is wrong.

Jarrett Bousquet, who represents the defenseman, said scheduling has a lot do with it and Weber spends the summer in Kelowna, B.C. "His initial reaction (to the trade) was there was a pause and a little bit of shock," Bousquet said Monday. "And then when he realized it was true, he was pretty excited. Obviously, now he’s extremely excited being back in Canada and the pieces that they've put together. And he knows Carey Price from B.C. and the Olympics and whatnot, so I know he's very excited now." Weber is expected to bring leadership and make the Canadiens harder to play against with his physicality, but he is not projected to win over the fans or the media with his charisma like Subban did.
Aug 3 - 2:16 PM

Shea Weber has been traded to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for P.K. Subban.

Jun 22 - 7:56 PM

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.
May 14 - 3:23 PM

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.
