Habs’ Weber takes puck to face blocking shot

The Montreal Canadiens lost defenseman Shea Weber was hit in the face by a puck Monday against the Minnesota Wild while blocking a shot and left the game.

The Canadiens’ captain was injured six minutes into the first period. Weber winced in pain on the bench but played seven more shifts and finished the first period. He did not return for the second.

The 33-year-old already missed the first 24 games of the season with foot and knee injuries dating to last season.
