Mike Weber was heartbroken after Thursday's overtime loss to Arizona because of the hometown crowd was cheering against them.
"It's tough to get momentum when your fans are rooting against you," Weber said. "That's the unfortunate part. I've never seen that before. I've always spoken extremely high of our fans. I don't even know if disappointed is the word. They scored that first one, our fans are cheering. Delayed penalty, they cheer. They cheer when they score to win the game. I don't know. I don't even know what to say." Buffalo is last in the league and Arizona is 29th. The team that finishes 30th has a 100 percent chance to draft either Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel, so tanking has become a popular topic of conversation in both cities. Mar 27 - 9:00 AM

Mike Weber finished with nine blocked shots in the Sabres’ 2-0 loss to the Rangers on Saturday night.

A good example that shot blocking might be more indicative of how your team is playing than anything else. Weber blocked those shots, but still finished a negative-18 when it comes to shot-attempt differential. He also had three shots on goal, a team high, and a minus-one rating.

Mike Weber (upper body) will surprisingly be back in the lineup Thursday night when Buffalo plays Vancover.

He was injured on Feb. 20 against the Rangers and was originally projected to miss two weeks, but he'll be back in far ahead of that timetable. Weber has 121 hits and 109 blocks in 48 games this season, but he doesn't contribute in any other categories to warrant fantasy attention.

Mike Weber will miss at least two weeks with an upper-body injury.

He suffered the injury during Friday's loss to the New York Rangers. The 27-year-old has one goals and six points in 48 games this season. This injury doesn't have any fantasy impact.

Mike Weber left Friday's loss against the Rangers with an upper-body injury.

Weber played just 7:23 in the game. Sabres' head coach Ted Nolan didn't sound overly optimistic about the injury. It's unclear how long Weber will be out, but all signs point to him missing a good amount of action.
Feb 20 - 10:39 PM

Mike Weber logged a season-high 24:58 of ice time in Thursday's shootout win against Philadelphia.

He played over 24 minutes versus New Jersey on Tuesday. Now that Drew Stafford has been traded and Patrick Kaleta is on injured reserve, Weber is the longest tenured Buffalo Sabre on the team's active roster. He made his debut with the club back in 2007-08. Weber provides plenty of hits (121) and blocks (108), but he doesn't do much else in terms of fantasy hockey.

Mike Weber will return to Buffalo's blue line Tuesday night against Calgary.

Out since mid-December with a lower body injury, the bruiser is expected to skate with Rasmus Ristolainen as their third unit. Through 36 games, Weber has accumulated 45 PIMs, 84 blocks, and 94 hits. Not too shabby if you're in a league that rewards tough guys.

Mike Weber and Andrej Meszaros will be scratched Saturday night against the Flyers.

While Meszaros' scratching is of the healthy variety, Weber is suffering with a lower body injury. Though it is not considered serious. Meszaros has no fantasy value, but Weber has collected 45 PIMs and 94 hits through 38 games.

Mike Weber skipped practice Friday but will be available Saturday night against Philadelphia.

Weber has no offensive talents but does get a few penalty minutes now and then. That does not make him rosterable in most fantasy leagues.
Jan 17 - 9:24 AM

Mike Weber was the only goal scorer for Buffalo in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Red Wings.

The tally was the first of the season for Weber, who has also added five assists in 35 games to go along with a minus-11 rating and 43 penalty minutes. He has no fantasy value.
Jan 13 - 10:27 PM

Mike Weber will indeed be in the lineup Saturday night versus the New York Islanders.

Updating an earlier report, the Sabres defensemen will indeed be dressing Saturday. He will pair up with Andre Benoit to form the Sabres third defensive pairing. In 26 games this season, Weber has four assists, a minus five rating, and 39 penalty minutes.

Look for Mike Weber to return to action against the Islanders Saturday.

He had a knee cope that has kept him out of the lineup for six games but appears ready to suit up. If you need Weber for some reason, get ready to activate him.

Mike Weber could be back in the Buffalo lineup as early as Tuesday against Detroit.

Weber, who is recovering very quickly from a knee scope, participated in the Sabres' practice Friday. Although he likely won't play Saturday against Colorado, Weber may be able to dress for Tuesday's contest against the Red Wings. It was originally thought that Weber would wait until after the Christmans break to return. If you need some hits and PIMs get ready to activate Weber for Buffalo's one game next week.

Mike Weber will be out until at least after Christmas.

He had his knee scoped, and these kinds of injuries need at least a month to heal. We'll keep you posted on his progress. Weber ranks 14th among defensemen in hits with 72 and has 39 PIMs to his credit for all you deep poolies.
Sat, Dec 13, 2014 05:47:00 PM

Mike Weber sat out Friday's practise with an undisclosed injury and is listed as questionable for Saturday's contest against Florida.

If Weber can't answer the bell, look for Andrej Meszaros, who had been sidelined with a concussion, to draw back into the Buffalo lineup.
