Predators defenseman and captain Shea Weber didn't skate with the team at practice on Thursday after suffering an upper-body injury in a 4-3 win over Winnipeg on Tuesday.

He is listed as day-to-day entering Friday's home game against New Jersey.

“In terms of moving someone in there, it's a big deal if he doesn't play,” coach Barry Trotz said. “It's a big hole we have to fill. It'll probably be the youngest group we've ever put together on the ice with Michael Del Zotto being the lead guy I'm guessing around 240 in terms of games.”
