Hit hard by injuries in recent years, the captain of the Montreal canadiens, Shea Weber, has regained the form and feels in full possession of his means.
This is what the defender of experience has shown the network Sportsnet, Monday, recalling, correctly, that his troubles were not limited to the campaign 2019-2020.
“It was not just the last year, during which I came back after two surgeries. Before that, I had suffered a fracture of the ankle, and I needed the operation, explained Weber. So, it was probably two years that I hadn’t felt so good.”
The rear has inter alia had an operation for a tendon of the left foot, on 13 march 2018. Then, on July 5, 2018, it is passed again under the knife, this time an arthroscopy to the right knee to repair the meniscus.
Thus, the man’s 34-year-old was limited to 26 games in the campaign 2017-2018 and to 58 the year following. He has also missed some games during the current season, it will be ready in the event of a resumption of the activities of the national hockey League (NHL).
“Not only do I feel good physically, but mentally also. It is good to wake up every day and feel normal, or as close as possible. It was a long time. I have a little more energy and I am more excited.”
Weber has scored 15 goals and totaled 36 points, while maintaining a differential of +8 in 65 clashes this season. Since he was acquired from the Predators in Nashville in the back of P. K. Subban in June 2016, has scored 52 goals and amassed 127 points in 227 meetings, playing an average of 24 min 23 s per game.
