Welcome news comes this morning from Josh Cooper, confirming that Nashville Predators captain Shea Weber has indeed been taken off Injured Reserve and is ready to play tonight against the Dallas Stars, the team against which he suffered a concussion back on December 23rd. Preds PA announcer Paul McCann noticed first in tonight's media Game Notes that the captain was no longer listed on IR, but this update from the team seals the deal:
#6 / Defenseman / Nashville Predators
Aug 14, 1985
|2011 - Shea Weber||35||8||21||29||14||24||5||1||1||106||7.5|
Dallas is also getting their top defenseman back in Stephane Robidas, setting up what should be a pretty good match between two teams fighting for playoff position in the Western Conference.
Tom Callahan also tweets that Colin Wilson is not ready to go tonight.
