Shea Weber out 5-6 months after knee surgery

By on July 6, 2018

Montreal Canadiens are going to have to wait a while for Shea Weber’s return.

The team announced Thursday that he will be out until December or January as he recovers from arthroscopic surgery in his right knee.

“We were very disappointed to learn that this knee injury will extend Shea’s recovery period,” Said Montreal Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin.

“Unfortunately, this is out of our control and we have to fully trust the medical group in these situations. We are confident that his recovery will go as scheduled and that Shea will return to action as soon as possible.”

Weber last played in a 3-0 loss to the Ottawa Senators on December 18. He posted six goals, 10 assists and a -8 rating in just 26 games last season.

The 32-year old still has eight more seasons left on the 14-year, $110 million contract he signed back in 2012.
