Defenceman Shea Weber will be a game-time decision Saturday against the Detroit Red Wings. Weber took part in the Habs' morning skate but head coach Claude Julien said he still needs to speak to team medical staff before the game.

Weber has missed the past six games for the Canadiens, recovering from a lower-body injury.

To make room for Weber, who took part in Habs' morning skate Saturday, the Canadiens are expected to place defenceman Brandon Davidson on waivers.
