Shea Weber has said no to Hockey Canada.

The Montreal Canadiens defenceman was asked by Hockey Canada to participate in the World Championships, but the 33 year-old declined the invitation. 

Weber, who played four seasons with the Kelowna Rockets, has represented Canada numerous times Internationally, including the Olympic games in 2010 (Vancouver) and 2014 (Sochi). 

Weber returned to the Canadiens line up in late November after spending 11 months recovering from injuries to his left foot and knee and surgeries to repair both issues.

The 2019 World Championships are in early May in Slovakia.
