The Nashville Predators have matched the Flyers' offer sheet and will retain captain Shea Weber.

The Flyers offered Weber a 14-year, $110 million deal last week. The Predators chose to match, keeping their captain in Nashville.

“In tendering an offer sheet to Shea Weber, we were trying to add a top defenseman entering the prime of his career. With Nashville matching our offer, we wish Shea and the Predators all the best," Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said in a statement.

More details to come.
