A complete bombshell regarding the Montreal Canadiens late Wednesday night. 

According to Renaud Lavoie, the Canadiens have no plans of protecting captain Shea Weber during the upcoming expansion draft. 

The news doesn't stop there....

Lavoie adds that the latest medical update has revealed that Weber could miss the entire season and possibly even longer because of his current injuries. 

His thumb injury seems to be a serious problem. 

More details to come.
