Weber exited Monday's practice after just a few minutes of skating, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

While there was no update from the team regarding the nature of Weber's absence, it could be related to the fact that he logged just 21:09 of ice time against Toronto on Saturday -- nearly five minutes below his season average. Despite the potential injury, the defenseman will still Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports with the team on its upcoming two-game road trip. In the event the all-star is unable to play, he would likely be replaced by either Brandon Davidson or David Schlemko (hand), who seems to be trending in the right direction in his recovery.

Weber had one shot on net and one hit over 28:22 of ice time in Saturdays' 2-1 overtime win over the Sabres.

EDGE Analysis

Weber had missed Thursday's loss to Minnesota due to a lower-body injury, but was back to normal and given team-high ice time. In Weber's previous game -- Tuesday's win over Vegas -- he wasn't the Canadiens' playing-time leader for the first time this season. Head coach Claude Julien told Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette that he's trying to reduce Weber's workload, but those are plans the coach can't realistically follow with any consistency.

Weber (lower body) is in the lineup for Saturday night's matchup with the Sabres.

EDGE Analysis

Weber missed just one game as a result of his ailment and will look to get back on track after recording two assists and a minus-2 rating in the four contests prior to his injury.

Weber (lower body) was on the ice for morning skate Saturday, John Lu of TSN.ca reports.

EDGE Analysis

Montreal's prized offensive defenseman had also taken to the ice for Friday's optional practice, so this bodes well for his chances of lacing up against the Sabres on Saturday evening. Still, Weber will be a dice roll until coach Claude Julien has a chance to confirm that he's in.

Weber's (lower body) status for Saturday's clash with Buffalo will be determined prior to puck drop.

EDGE Analysis

Prior to getting hurt, Weber was struggling to tickle the twine, as he went goalless in his previous seven outings. The defenseman has found other ways to contribute, however, with seven assists in those appearances. If the veteran can't give it a go versus the Sabres, Brandon Davidson figures to continue filling in on the blue line.

Weber (lower body) won''t play Thursday against Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

There was no indication that Weber was dealing with an injury until he didn't take the ice for pregame warmups, so this news comes as a complete surprise. The good news is he's considered day-to-day ahead of Saturday's matchup with Buffalo, but the bad news is the Canadiens will now have to try and beat the Wild without two of their top offensive weapons in Weber and Jonathan Drouin (upper body). Brandon Davidson will likely occupy Weber's spot in the lineup against Minnesota.

Weber set up two goals in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

For all the criticism of the trade that brought him to Montreal, Weber just continues to produce. Right now, he's 10th overall in scoring (three goals, eight assists) from the blue line -- that's better than a 60-point pace. Weber isn't slowing down, but pounce if his owner thinks that's the case. There is plenty of fantasy goodness in that jersey.

Weber recorded three assists with a plus-4 rating through 26:37 of ice time (2:48 on the power play) during Monday's 8-3 win over Ottawa.

EDGE Analysis

Weber has now posted three multi-point showings through his past four games for an impressive two goals and five assists. The veteran is also now up to a rock-solid nine points and 38 shots through 12 contests. It looks like Weber is well on his way to a fifth consecutive season with at least 15 goals and 40 points, which affirms his status as one of the most reliable blue-line options in fantasy.

Weber compiled two assists and three blocked shots in Saturday's 5-4 home win over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Montreal's highest-paid defenseman -- Weber's cashing in $7.857 million annually -- is starting to heat up offensively with four points over his last three games. Also, he currently ranks 27th in the entire league with 37 shots on goal through 11 contests. Montreal has the fewest amount of points in the entire league, but it'll be up to leaders like Weber to right the team's woes and be competitive within the Atlantic Division. However, that's easier said than done with offensive powerhouses Tampa Bay and Toronto in the fold.
