Shea Weber Inducted Into The Hockey Hall Of Fame

Mark Humphrey/The Associated Press

Shea Weber was one of seven inductees into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Tuesday Afternoon, along with Pavel Datsyuk, Jeremy Roenick, David Poile, Natalie Darwitz, Colin Campbell, and Krissy Wendell-Pohl. The Nashville Predators would draft the BC native in the second round of the 2003 NHL Draft and would spend the first 11 years of his career with the Predators, putting up 166 goals and 277 assists for 443 points in 763 regular season games and would adding 13 goals and 15 assists for 28 points in 59 Stanley Cup Playoff Games as a member of the Nashville Predators. He would also serve as Nashville’s captain for seven seasons. Weber would end up getting traded to the Montreal Canadiens in June 2016 in a blockbuster trade that would send P.K. Subban to Nashville and, unfortunately, would begin the downfall of Weber’s career as injuries would keep him sidelined for most of his time in Montreal. Weber would play five seasons with the Habs, putting up 58 goals and 88 assists for 146 points in 275 regular season games and adding five goals and nine assists for 14 points in 38 Stanley Cup Playoff Games with the Canadiens.

When people think of Shea Weber, they will remember his incredibly hard shot from the blueline. He is one of the bigger names who finished his career without raising the Stanley Cup. During his career, Weber was named to six NHL All-Star Teams, won the Mark Messier Award in 2016, and won three Norris Trophies over the course of his illustrious 19 years in the NHL. The 38-year-old defenseman is currently under contract with the Utah Hockey Club, as he has two years left on his 14-year, $110 million deal that he signed with the Preds back in 2012.
