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. Jan 27 - 8:33 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
