Preds announce re-signing of Shea Weber

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The Nashville Predators have matched a 14-year offer sheet worth $110 million that the Philadelphia Flyers offered last week to captain Shea Weber.

Because Weber, 26, is a restricted free agent, the Predators had a week to match the offer if they wanted to keep the All-Star defenseman.

Tuesday's announcement insures the Predators' captain will remain with the franchise for the next 14 years.

The Predators held a news conference Wednesday afternoon to announce the signing.

If the Preds didn't match the offer sheet, they would have received several draft picks.

Weber made $7.5 million last season with the Predators. He's played in Nashville since 2006.
