"What a week it's been for Shea Weber and the Montreal Canadiens. Weber was placed on injured reserve recently things absolutely snowballed from a 7 day IR stint to his career being over thanks to a Tweet by NHL insider Nick Kypreos. When it was revealed that Weber was going to see a foot specialist, Kypreos took the opportunity to Tweet "Sources say Shea Weber injury has his season likely over and his future in question. Told injury is related to foot that was surgically repaired in 2018. While waiting for swelling to alleviate and further confirmation, surgery seemed unavoidable going into this week"Well that was far from the real story as the Canadiens would later announce that Weber would miss 4-6 weeks. That was way off as well as Weber was on the ice for practice today and now he'll likely even play tomorrow night. Kypreos took the opportunity to semi-apologize to Weber and his family after seeing Weber on the ice for practice.Here's his statement:"To Shea Weber and the Montreal Canadiens organization. Last week I sent out a tweet to further advance the story of Shea's injury.While I was able to properly identify his injured foot and speak of the swelling while awaiting further confirmation, it was not my intent to mislead anyone about his immediate future. My primary objective was to report on the Canadiens serious concerns going into the week.After time to reflect, I understand how portions of my tweet added unnecessary stress to Shea, his family and the team.While I still stand by the information that I received, I'd like to apologize to Shea and the @canadiensmtl for not choosing my words with more sensitivity. I wish Shea a speedy recovery."
What do you think of Kypreos apology?"
