Nashville Predators defenseman Shea Weber took a puck to the face Thursday against the Edmonton Oilers late in the second period. It was announced that Weber sustained an upper body injury and would not return.
Weber, who entered the game sixth in the League in average total ice time (26:33), absorbed a wrist shot from Oilers forward David Perron just below his right eye.
Playing on Nashville's top defensive pair with Roman Josi, Weber has seven goals and 12 points with a minus-6 rating in 25 games. He left the game Thursday with a team-high five of the Predators' 24 shots through two periods.
