BROSSARD, Que.— Montreal Canadiens defenceman Shea Weber was back on the ice Wednesday for the first time since being shut down by the team with a left-foot injury on Dec. 19.
Though Weber skated for several minutes on his own, no timetable for a return to play has been established as of yet.
In 26 games this season, Weber scored six goals and added 10 assists for 16 points. The Canadiens have gone 8-10-2 in his absence.
Forward Phillip Danault also practised on his own Wednesday after resuming skating early last week.
Danault has missed the last 10 games with a concussion, suffered after he was hit by a slap shot from Boston Bruins defenceman Zdeno Chara in the second period of a 4-3 overtime loss for the Canadiens on Jan. 13.
The 24-year-old has seven goals and 23 points in 43 games this season. He remains sidelined indefinitely.
