Habs defenceman Shea Weber to sit out two games with lower body injury

In this Oct. 13, 2016, file photo, Montreal Canadiens' Shea Weber skates during the team's NHL hockey game against the Buffalo Sabres in Buffalo, N.Y. Going to the NHL all-star game is nothing new for Weber, but this season it's a little different.


Defenceman Shea Weber will miss at least two Montreal Canadiens games with a lower body injury, the NHL club announced Monday.

He will sit out games Monday night in Florida and Wednesday night in Buffalo. The team gave no details of the injury but said the decision to have Weber return to Montreal was made for precautionary reasons.

Weber, 31, has 17 goals and 42 points in 78 games this season.
