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.
Apr 3 - 6:50 PM

Mike Weber is dealing with an undisclosed ailment.

Weber was apparently feeling sore Friday morning and he might miss Buffalo's game against Chicago as a result. He has seven points and 68 penalty minutes in 64 contests in 2014-15.
Apr 3 - 3:16 PM

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.

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.

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.
Feb 26 - 2:55 PM

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.
Feb 22 - 12:28 PM

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.
Feb 20 - 10:31 AM

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.
Jan 17 - 5:40 PM

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.
