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.
Dec 20 - 9:10 AM

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.
Dec 13 - 5:47 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.

The Buffalo Sabres are sitting Mike Weber and Andre Benoit against the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday.

JFYI as neither are fantasy factors.
Nov 2 - 3:04 PM

Mike Weber recorded his first goal of the season in Sunday's loss to Philadelphia.

He has six points in 64 games to go with an abysmal minus-32 rating, which places him in a tie for the worst among NHL defensemen. Weber was a pleasant surprise for the Sabres a year ago, but this season has been a complete disaster for him and for the team as a whole.

Mike Weber is listed as questionable for Saturday night's contest against the Islanders.

He injured his foot/ankle in Thursday night's game against the Hurricanes and may not be able to suit up Saturday night.

Mike Weber has impressed Sabre coach Ted Nolan with his competitiveness.

So much so that Nolan made him an assistant captain Friday in place of the injured Henrik Tallinder. "This guy, he competes all the time," Nolan said. That said, Weber has a horrible minus 20 plus/minus rating and has registered only two assists in 29 games. He does chip in the odd penalty minute here and there but despite Weber's rise in stature in Buffalo he is not worth rostering.

Mike Weber (thumb) has been activated off of the injured reserve list.

This move was expected given that Weber has been penciled in to return Tuesday. He has missed 10 straight games with a broken thumb.

Mike Weber is ready to return from his broken thumb on Tuesday night.

He's been sidelined since Oct. 25 because of a blocked shot and he's missed the team's last 10 games. Weber is expected to suit up against St. Louis, so look for the Sabres to make a roster move at some point this afternoon and activate him from injured reserve.

Mike Weber (thumb) is about a week away from returning.

Weber declared himself fit to play earlier this week, but it looks like he was getting ahead of himself. He has no points and 21 penalty minutes in 11 games this season.

Mike Weber (broken thumb) has declared himself fit to play, but he won't suit up on Tuesday.

He has been out of action since Oct. 25 with a broken thumb. Weber might return this weekend when the Sabres play a home-and-home set against Toronto. When he's ready to come off injured reserve, Buffalo will need to open a roster spot for him and Nikita Zadorov may be a candidate to return to the junior ranks.

Mike Weber has a cast on his left thumb and he's projected to be sidelined for a while.

He sustained an "upper-body injury" when he blocked a shot Friday in Florida and coach Ron Rolston anticipates that the ailment will be of the long-term variety. Weber has no points and a minus-12 rating in 11 games, but he has contributed 29 hits and 24 blocked shots.
Sat, Oct 26, 2013 03:07:00 PM

The Buffalo Sabres announced that defenseman Mike Weber suffered an upper-body injury during Friday's game against the Florida Panthers and won't return.

Weber hasn't been able to generate a goal or an assist in 11 games for Buffalo. He's averaging a little bit more than 17 minutes per night, so this doesn't have a fantasy impact.
Fri, Oct 25, 2013 09:32:00 PM

Mike Weber will be a healthy scratch Saturday night.

He has an NHL-worst minus-8 rating to start the season, so his benching isn't surprising. Alexander Sulzer will suit up against Chicago in Weber's spot on the blueline.
