It kind of came out of nowhere last week when the Montreal Canadiens placed defenseman Shea Weber on injured reserve. 

Weber blocked a shot against the New Jersey Devils and many believed that was the cause of the injury. 

However the Canadiens and head coach Claude Julien have been adamant that the injury has nothing to do with that shot block. 

Julien revealed yesterday that Weber won't be travelling with the team for the next couple of games and doesn't really have any updates. 

On Tuesday morning, NHL insider Bob McKenzie chimed in on the injury.

"I’m hearing the prognosis on Shea Weber’s LBI is not at all encouraging in terms of him playing any time soon. That said, other than saying he won’t be on the BOS-PIT road trip and won’t play any games this week, information from MTL on Weber’s health has been on lockdown.

Often times, when a player is sidelined for a week or more without a definitive prognosis/announcement from the club, it’s because the doctors/club/player are weighing the options (rehab vs. surgery etc) or getting additional medical opinions on what can be complicated injuries."

Do you think Weber's season is over?
