NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Nashville Predators defenseman Shea Weber will be out three to six weeks after dislocating his knee cap in Thursday's 4-0 victory over Colorado.
The 22-year-old played only 2:19 of the opening period when he fell on the ice and caught his skate awkwardly. Weber has 108 points (19 goals, 31 assists) 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.
Ville Koistinen, 25, will make his NHL debut Saturday in Weber's spot against the Dallas Stars.
