The Montreal Canadiens announced Thursday defenceman Shea Weber will miss the remainder of the season as he will undergo surgery to repair a tendon in his left foot.

“Following the diagnosis of Shea Weber’s injury, it was our belief that after a comprehensive rehabilitation protocol under the guidance of our medical team, Shea would be able to return to play this season. Unfortunately, after extensive efforts to heal Shea’s injury, progress has not been made as expected,” team orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Paul Martineau, said in a press release. “After further exams, and a consultation on Wednesday in Green Bay, Wisconsin with specialist Dr. Robert Anderson, and with Shea’s approval, it has been determined that he should undergo surgery and will be out for the reminder of the season.”
