Mike Weaver has re-signed with Montreal for one-year and $1.75 million.

He was in and out of the lineup as the Habs' seventh rearguard. Every NHL team needs a player like Weaver but he really is not a fantasy asset as he only has value if your pools counts blocked shots and hits.

Weaver was acquired from Florida a the trade deadline and he played well for Montreal, especially during the playoffs. In 72 games during the regular season, Weaver had 13 points, 121 hits and 128 blocks. During the postseason, he earned four points and a plus-8 rating in 17 appearances.

Mike Weaver logged 15:22 of ice time in his Montreal debut Thursday night.

He had two penalty minutes, one shot, a block and a minus-1 rating in a 5-2 loss to Phoenix. Weaver is known as a good shot blocker and penalty killer, so he should fit in nicely with the Canadiens. Montreal leads the league in blocked shots this year with a total of 1,211.

The Florida Panthers have dealt Mike Weaver to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for a 2015 fifth round draft pick.

Mike Weaver could be moved by Wednesday's trade deadline.

The pending free agent was scratched Saturday because coach Peter Horachek didn't like what he saw from him Thursday. "Everyone has to be accountable in certain situations,'' Horachek said. "We have to make decisions each night." The defenseman has six assists with a minus-11 rating in 54 games this season.

Mike Weaver could be shipped out of Florida before next week's trade deadline, but he isn't thinking about it.

"Being an athlete, you can't think like that," he said. "I don't think anybody's safe, but you control what you control, and have to let the pieces fall where they may." He is eligible to be an unrestricted free agent at the end this season. Weaver hits, blocks shots and kills penalties, so he could be an attractive defender for teams seeking depth before the playoffs.

Mike Weaver sat out his first game of the season as a healhty scratch Friday night against Carolina.

Panthers' coach Peter Horacek had two things in mind when he decided to sit Weaver in the press box. First, the 30-year-old Weaver doesn't play well in back-to-back games. Second, Horacek wanted to get Dylan Olsen some ice time. Weaver has no fantasy value so whether he plays or sits is of little consequence to those in hockey pools.

Mike Weaver earned a career-high plus-5 rating in Monday's win over Pittsburgh.

He also had an assist for his third point of the season. Weaver has helped Florida's penalty kill make significant improvements of late.
