Weber to stay with Preds
It looks like top paid NHL defenceman Shea Weber isn't going anywhere.
The Nashville Predators announced Tuesday that they've matched the 14-year, $110-million offer sheet between their captain and the Philadelphia Flyers.
The Predators are calling the move "the most important hockey transaction in franchise history."
The agreement comes just a day before Nashville's deadline to match
The 26 year old former Kelowna Rockets player had 19 goals and 49 points last season for Nashville.
The Predators had already lost free-agent defenceman Ryan Suter to Minnesota this summer, and losing Weber would have been a major blow to the teams defence.
