Shea Weber is hoping to return to the Predators’ lineup at some point during his team’s two-game road trip — so either Saturday in Washington or Tuesday in New York versus the Rangers.

And when he does return, he’ll be wearing a visor, just like he was wearing this morning at Nashville practice.

Weber has missed three games with an eye injury after being struck in the face with a puck on Nov. 28. The 28-year-old defenseman said today he feels lucky the injury wasn’t worse.

“When you can’t see, it’s pretty scary,” he said. “You wonder if it’s long term.”

Weber said it may take him some time to get used to the visor, but he’s worn one before, in junior and in the Olympics and World Championships.

“I’m sure after a little while I won’t even notice it,” he said.

    I even noticed Downie wearing a visor in a game earlier this week…must have been after he came back from the concussion from his fight in the Caps game.

    Weber was lucky. Good to hear he’ll start wearing a visor now. Hope more NHL players start wearing visors too!
