Shea Weber Will Have Surgery On His Foot To Repair A Tendon Tear

MONTREAL - Canadiens defenseman Shea Weber will undergo surgery to repair a tear in a tendon in his left foot and will miss the remainder of the 2017-18 season.

˝Following the diagnosis of Shea Weber's injury, it was our belief that after a comprehensive rehabilitation protocol under the guidance of our medical team, Shea would be able to return to play this season. Unfortunately, after extensive efforts to heal Shea's injury, progress has not been made as expected. After further exams, and a consultation on Wednesday in Green Bay, Wisconsin with specialist Dr. Robert Anderson, and with Shea's approval, it has been determined that he should undergo surgery and will be out for the reminder of the season. Our medical group will work with Shea to ensure he is pursuing the best course of treatment moving forward, and we expect him to make a full recovery and be ready for the start of training camp next season. The length of his recovery will be determined following surgery, which will be performed by Dr. Anderson,'' said the Club's orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Paul Martineau.

That’s too bad. I really like Shea Weber and that’s despite the fact that he tried to ram Henrik Zetterberg’s head through the glass that one time.  That said, that Subban deal was bad the minute it happened for the Habs and keeps looking worse and worse…
