Habs' Weber out for 6 months after surgery

The Montreal Canadiens have issued a medical update on the status of Shea Weber.

The Habs defenceman underwent surgery earlier today to repair an injury to tendons in his left foot.

The 32 year old played in only 26 games this season and hasn't played a game since December 16.

His recovery is expected to be 6 months.

The Canadiens acquired Weber from the Nashville Predators in June 2016, in exchange for PK Subban.
