DETROIT — Montreal defenceman Shea Weber and forward Paul Byron are cleared to return to the lineup for the Canadiens' game tonight at Detroit.
Canadiens coach Claude Julien confirmed Weber and Byron would be available after today's morning skate.
Weber, Montreal's captain, missed Montreal's last six games with a left ankle injury.
He was originally expected to miss four to six weeks of action, but was a surprise participant in practice on Monday.
Byron has been out since Nov. 15 with a knee injury.
