Shea Weber scored his fifth goal of the season in Thursday night's shootout loss to the Maple Leafs.

Weber has poured on the production as of late, with four goals and five points in his past six games. The 30-year-old sharpshooter has nine points in 15 games in 2015-16.

Shea Weber produced his 150th career goal and 400th point in Tuesday's 7-5 win over Ottawa.

He scored his fourth goal of the season on a second-period power play to reach the milestones. Weber has generated three goals and one assist in his last five contests. He joined Rangers' Dan Boyle and Bruins' Zdeno Chara as the only active defensemen with 150 goals.

Shea Weber scored a power play goal in a 4-2 loss to the Ducks on Sunday.

He now has power play goals in consecutive games. Weber is one of the best defensemen in the NHL and a must start every time the Preds play. His booming slap shot is great for leagues that count power play goals.

Shea Weber scored a power play goal in Saturday's overtime loss to the Los Angeles Kings.

Weber's goal was a blast from the point (just as you'd expect) and it gave the Preds a 2-1 lead at the time. The 30-year-old now has two goals and five points in 10 games this season. Expect him to score a little more frequently as the season goes on.

Shea Weber looked great in his first pre-season game Wednesday night.

It was his first game action since he dislocated a kneecap during last season's playoffs. Preds' coach Peter Laviolette was very pleased with what he saw from Weber. "He looked great," Laviolette said. "We kept him off the penalty kill. We got him 5-on-5 time and power play time. We will increase that from here and work him in a little bit more, but I thought for his first game back since last spring, I thought he looked really good." Good news for Weber owners. Weber is one of the top fantasy defensemen and should be drafted in the early rounds of hockey pools regardless of format.

Shea Weber skated in his first preseason game Wednesday night.

It was his game action since he suffered a dislocated kneecap against Chicago on April 17 during the first round of the playoffs. "It was fun, fun to get back out there in a competitive setting, battle out there a little bit, get some hits and some contact," Weber said. "Whatever's going to take, we're working at it together here. Obviously, don't want to jump right into it and find out it's not quite ready, so it feels good and we'll just keep ramping up and be ready for the season." He finished with just 19:21 of ice time because coach Peter Laviolette wants to monitor the captain's minutes before the regular season.

The Nashville Predators will look to reduce Shea Weber's ice time this season.

When asked if it was realistic to expect Weber's minutes to go down, head coach Peter Laviolette said: "Certainly, ideally you'd like to bring those minutes down a little bit if you could. Sometimes in the course of the game, it becomes a little bit challenging. I do think that we have the support and the depth to try to accomplish that this year, to see if we can't bring it down a little bit. One of the strengths on our team is defense, the depth of our defense. There's guys that still probably don't get the minutes or the situational play that they should, and that's got to be the challenge of the coaching staff, to make sure that these guys are getting the minutes, that they do get distributed a little bit more." The 30-year-old averaged 26:22 in 2014-15. Even if the Predators to chop his minutes, he will still have a lot of fantasy value going forward.

Shea Weber doesn't believe his regular off-season training will be impacted by his rehab from knee surgery.

"I spend a lot of time in the gym every day during the week," Weber said. "I'll go in there and work out and obviously try to improve on weaknesses and also improve on some of my strengths. ... I can't do as much lower-body right now, but I'm still doing cardiovascular stuff, like I still ride the bike, use the rowing machine and stair stepper and all that stuff." He is progressing well from a dislocated kneecap and expects to be ready for training camp.

Shea Weber’s recovery from surgery on a dislocated kneecap is going as planned.

Weber suffered the injury in Game 2 of the Predators’ first-round series with the Blackhawks on April 17. He was told it would take four to six weeks to recover. "Knee’s feeling good," Weber said. "Just taking it day by day and following the protocol and getting better each day." The defenseman who tallied 15 goals and 45 points during the regular season expects to fully cleared "hopefully soon."

Shea Weber sustained a subluxed kneecap during Game 2 of Nashville's first-round series against Chicago.

He sat out the Predators' final four playoff matches and underwent a medical procedure to repair the damage. Weber is expected to require four to six weeks of recovery time.
Apr 27 - 4:52 PM

Shea Weber has been ruled out for the remainder of the first round due to a lower-body injury.

Nashville wouldn't specify what Weber's injury is, which is typical during the playoffs, but the team did specify that he doesn't have an ACL issue. Either way, Weber is obviously a huge part of the Predators and his absence has been felt. Also keep in mind that him being ruled out for the remainder of the first round doesn't necessarily imply that he will be back at some point during the Predators' playoff run should they advanced far enough. He might be able to return, but given the secrecy surrounding this and most other injuries at this time of year, there's no way to know for certain.

Shea Weber will not join his teammates as they try to stave off elimination in Game Five versus Chicago on Thursday night.

Weber is still recovering from a lower body injury he sustained in Game Two. This is a tough blow for the Predators, who are just 1-4-2 record when Shea Weber isn't in their lineup. He'll be joined by Anton Volchenkov, Eric Nystrom, Viktor Arvidsson, Kevin Fiala and Gabriel Bourque in the press box.
Apr 23 - 9:35 PM

Over the last two seasons, the Nashville Predators have a 1-4-2 record when Shea Weber isn't in their lineup.

That doesn't bode well for their chances in their first round series against Chicago. Weber left game two with a leg injury and he didn't travel to Chicago for game three. "He’s a hard guy to replace, a guy any team would miss," Predators goalie Pekka Rinne said. "I think you try to fill the hole as a team, like we did (Friday) night. But hopefully it’s not a long-term injury and he’ll be back soon." The 29-year-old finished the season with 15 goals and 45 points in 78 games this season. Weber averaged over 26 minutes per game throughout the regular season.
Apr 19 - 8:57 AM

Grim news for the Nashville Predators: Shea Weber (leg) isn't traveling with the team to face the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 3 (and likely beyond).

With an update coming on Wednesday, it certainly doesn't sound like he'll be back anytime soon. The Predators are probably one of the teams most equipped to handle Weber's injury, but it's obviously a huge blow to Nashville anyway.
