Montreal Canadiens captain Shea Weber will play Tuesday against the Detroit Red Wings, the team announced.

Weber was given a four-to-six-week timeline on Feb. 12 after an ankle sprain had kept him out of the lineup since Feb. 4.

The 34-year-old has amassed 34 points in 55 games this season while averaging a team-high 24:18 of ice time.

Forward Paul Byron will also return to the lineup after missing the last 42 games with a knee injury.

Montreal sits eight points out of a playoff spot with a 27-26-8 record.
