News: Predators GM David Poile said Weber is progressing well in his recovery from a dislocated kneecap.
Impact: Poile suggested that Weber is about "90 percent" healthy, putting the defenseman on track to be back at full strength by the start of training camp. The knee injury limited Weber's prevented him from suiting up during much of the Preds' opening-round playoff series against the eventual Stanley Cup-champion Blackhawks, putting a damper on another strong season for the blueliner. He finished the campaign with 15 goals, 45 points, and a plus-15 rating over 78 games.
