Canadiens say Shea Weber to be sidelined 4-6 weeks

Montreal Canadiens star defenseman Shea Weber is expected to miss four to six weeks because of a sprained left ankle.

The Canadiens announced the injury Wednesday after Weber was evaluated earlier in the day by renowned specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Weber suffered the injury Feb. 4 against the New Jersey Devils and has missed Montreal's last three games.

Weber, 34, has 13 goals and 21 assists in 55 games this season, his fourth with the Canadiens.
