Shea Weber said he was nervous before registering his 108.5 mph shot during Saturday's skills competition.

Weber also believes that Bruins' defenseman is the man to beat at the event (Chara wasn't named to the All-Star team this year). "Obviously, [Chara]'s the guy to beat all the time," Weber said. "He's got the big shot. Honestly, I was nervous because there's some guys out there that can rip it." The Predators' defenseman was just 0.3 mph away from Chara's all-time record of 108.8 mph.

Shea Weber’s 108.5 mph shot in the NHL's hardest shot event in the NHL All-Star skills competition salvaged two points for Team Toews.

Per the NHL’s public relations department: Weber’s blast was 0.3 seconds off Zdeno Chara’s record shot from the 2012 event. Suffice to say, opponents will not be eager to get in the way of that puck when he launches it from the point. Team Foligno took three of five points in this event as their three shooters — Alex Ovechkin, Brent Burns, and Steven Stamkos all won their individual matchups. Team Foligno leads 15-4.

The skills competition will take place on Saturday night, and the game will be held on Sunday.

Shea Weber scored the opening goal and then netted the overtime winner in Nashville's 3-2 victory over Dallas on Thursday night.

The standout defenseman has 10 goals and 28 points through 40 games so far this season. Weber is right around the outstanding pace that saw him notch 56 points last season. The win ties Nashville with Anaheim for the NHL's top team, though the Predators have two games in hand.
Jan 8 - 11:48 PM

Shea Weber recorded a pair of goals for the Predators Tuesday night as they registered a come-from-behind 3-2 victory.

Weber opened the scoring with his seventh marker of the year in the first period then added a shorthanded tally in the final frame, which stood up as the game-winner. Gabriel Bourque also found the back of the net for Nashville in the win.

Shea Weber registered two assists in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over Minnesota.

Weber assisted on Calle Jarnkrok's first period goal and Roman Josi's third period goal. The 29-year-old is having another outstanding season for the Preds. Weber has six goals, 20 points, and a plus-14 rating in 31 games this season. He continues to be one of the elite defensemen in the NHL.

Shea Weber missed most of the second period of Saturday's loss to San Jose.

Weber missed 12 minutes of the second period after he collided with Sharks' forward Tye McGinn. The collision resulted in Weber needing stitches. The 29-year-old has six goals and 17 points in 29 games this season. It doesn't look like Weber will miss any more time because of this injury.

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.
Sun, Oct 12, 2014 12:18:00 AM

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.
