Montreal Canadiens defenceman Shea Weber will miss his second game in a row with a lower-body injury. 

According to TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun, the injury is not the same lower-body injury that forced him to miss a game against the Minnesota Wild on Nov. 9. He returned two days later against the Buffalo Sabres, recording no points with one shot on goal.

Weber took part in Wednesday's optional skate in Nashville, skating alongside David SchlemkoVictor MeteByron Froese, and goalies Carey Price and Antti Niemi

In 20 games so far this season, Weber has four goals and nine assists. 

Meanwhile, defenceman Jakub Jerabek will make his NHL debut, with rookie Victor Mete being a healthy scratch.
