Predators' Weber out 3-6 weeks after dislocating knee
The 22-year-old played only 2:19 of the opening period when he fell on the ice and caught his skate awkwardly. In 108 career games, Weber has scored 19 goals and assisted on 31 others over the last two seasons in Nashville.
"Last night we were very fearful he had seriously hurt himself, so three to six weeks is good news from our end," head coach Barry Trotz said in a statement Friday.
