Mike Weber will be scratched from Sunday's game with the Islanders.

In previous seasons Weber was a steady supplier of tough guy stats, but this season he's barely laid the body, taken a puck, or sat in the sin bin. Considering he has just 48 points in 314 career games, he's not worth much to fantasy rosters until he rekindles his role as a brute.

Mike Weber was back in the lineup on Thursday against Pittsburgh.

He was scratched for the previous two games, but he got to return to the lineup in his hometown. Coach Dan Bylsma put Weber back in to take advantage of the defenseman's physical style. Weber had two penalty minutes, four hits and two blocks in Buffalo's 4-3 loss.

Once a steady supplier of tough guy stats - hits, blocks, and PIMs - Weber has barely hit the stat sheet with them this season through seven games. Depleting what little niche fantasy value he had.

Mike Weber believes the Buffalo Sabres are entering this season knowing that they can win games.

"This is the first time in a long time where we can go into a season expecting to win and expecting to compete and attack," said Weber. "The last couple seasons we’ve been sitting back and hoping for the best. That’s not fair to our fans. That’s not fair to this organization. They take great pride in where we want to be, and we’ve taken huge steps going forward here."
Oct 4 - 8:35 AM

Mike Weber will not be in the Buffalo lineup Monday night or in any of the Sabres' remaining regular-season games.

Weber needs surgery for a lower-body injury that the Sabres didn't identify. Weber had seven points in 64 games this season and wasn't an asset for fantasy owners who were looking for more than hits and blocks.
Apr 6 - 6:37 PM

As expected, Mike Weber is not in the lineup for the Sabres Friday night.

Weber was reportedly feeling sore Friday morning and did not participate in the morning skate. With seven points in 64 games this season, this news likely doesn't impact too many fantasy rosters.

Mike Weber has been named Buffalo's nominee for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy.

"I owe everything I have to this game," Weber said. "I'm not the most talented, the most skilled, but I knew where I wanted to be. I knew where I wanted to end up, and I've worked hard to get here. I try to work hard to stay here." He leads the Sabres with 165 blocks and ranks first among the club's defensemen with 169 hits in 63 games this season.
Apr 1 - 10:49 AM

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.
