The Montreal canadiens announced on Wednesday afternoon that his captain Shea Weber will miss four to six weeks of activity because of a sprain to the left ankle.
In a statement released on its website, the Habs made it clear that a full recovery was expected. The number 6 has received this diagnosis after having met with the specialist Robert Anderson in Green Bay earlier in the day. The latter was able to assess the condition of the knee of Weber after a decrease of its swelling.
Prior to this injury on February 4, Weber had an excellent campaign with 13 goals and 34 points in 55 games. It dominates all of the players of the workforce, with an average use of 24 min 18 s.
His extended absence would seriously hamper the slim chances of the Blue-White-Red access to the playoffs. Before the clash of the day in the face of the Boston Bruins, he was the 11th of the Association of the East with 61 points.
Previously, several rumors disturbing have been issued by various media, about the career of the defender. Some observers were quick to recall that the main party had been operated on the left foot in 2018 and missed nearly a year of action.
Thus, the former player of the national League and ex-journalist network Sportsnet Nick Kypreos, had mentioned that “its future is in danger”, adding that an operation seemed inevitable before the start of the week and the defender star waiting for the swelling decreases. On the other hand, the journalist of the channel TVA SportsRenaud Lavoie, had clarified that all of this was just pure speculation.
These concerns followed the silence of the montreal-based organization and its head coach Claude Julien.
“As long as there is nothing concrete, it gives me nothing to tell you something, had he hammered on an angry tone. What I said is the truth. It does not make the trip and it is hoped new at the end of the week.”
