Shea Weber D NAS 2 Months

Weber doubled his season assist total Tuesday, collecting three helpers and going plus-3 in a 9-2 demolition of the Leafs.

The big defenseman's been producing goals, as expected, but had been struggling in the assist category until the last three games, during which he's scored a goal and assisted on four more.

Weber scored his fifth goal of the year and added an assist on Roman Josi's power-play goal Thursday against the Blues.

Unfortunately, it wasn't enough in a 4-3 loss. Weber has been well off his typical scoring pace in the early going -- particularly in the assist category, as he collected just his third helper Thursday. His fantasy owners have to be hoping that Weber's first multi-point effort in more than a month indicates the start of a hot streak.

Weber registered a power-play goal in Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Blackhawks.

After struggling out of the gate a season earlier, Weber has been hot from the get-go through the first five games of 2014-15, churning out four points, 15 shots and a plus-5 rating. If the 29-year-old Weber can uphold an offensive pace similar to what he's shown thus far, he'll shatter the career-best 56 points he finished with last season.

Weber scored his second goal of the season, added an assist, and was a plus-4 in Saturday's win over Dallas.

What an effort from Weber, who also finished the night with four shots on goal, two PIM, three hits, and a game-high five blocked shots. He has scored in each of the Predators' two games this season, giving him a goal in each of his last four games dating back to 2013-14. Keep rolling this fantasy stud.

Weber supplied one of three third-period goals in the Preds' comeback win over the Senators on Thursday.

As usual, Weber was one of the driving forces of the Preds' attack, finishing with four shots on goal in his 26:52 of ice time. He chipped in liberally on his own end as well, collecting three hits and two penalty minutes in the victory. Aside from the elite blueliner he opposed Thursday (Erik Karlsson), Weber might be the next-best fantasy defenseman out there.

Weber (undisclosed) led all skaters with 25:54 of ice time in Saturday's preseason loss to Columbus. He did not factor into the scoring but registered three hits and seven shots on goal.

Weber missed Monday's game against the Blue Jackets after blocking a hard shot two days earlier against the Panthers, but was able to return to the lineup Saturday for the rematch against Columbus and looked no worse for wear. At this point, we expect him to open the season in good health and be one of the NHL's most productive blue liners. Draft with confidence.

Weber is not expected to start Monday's preseason scrimmage after blocking a hard shot Saturday against Florida, Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean reports.

Weber, who appeared to be shaking off the effects of the shot on his way to the bench during Saturday's contest, skated with the team Monday but will reportedly not suit up against the Blue Jackets. Bottom line, at this point it sounds like Weber's absence from the lineup is purely precautionary, but consider him day-to-day for now until more details are known.

Shea Weber has now fallen just shy of winning the Norris Trophy three times.

Weber finished third in the voting in 2014 after coming in second in 2011 and 2012. He had a terrific season and excelled offensively with 23 goals and 56 points in 79 games. He should remain one of the league's top defensemen for years to come.

Nashville GM David Poile is not looking to trade Shea Weber.

"We're keeping him, we're building our franchise around him," Poile said Wednesday in an attempt to put an end to any lingering rumors. "I think we've got one of the best young defenses in the league. I think he's got an excellent chance of winning the Norris Trophy in 11 or 12 days from now. Why wouldn't we build our team around him? That's exactly what we're doing." Weber is a finalist for the Norris Trophy and he led the team in scoring with 56 points in 79 games.
