No Montreal Canadiens player will wear the "C" for the 2021-22 campaign, general manager Marc Bergevin announced Monday.

Weber won't play this season due to ankle, foot, knee, and thumb injuries. His playing career is likely over.

The 36-year-old served as captain for three seasons, taking over following Max Pacioretty's departure in 2018.

The Habs last went without a captain during the 2014-15 campaign after Brian Gionta left as a free agent.
