Mike Weber re-ups

The Buffalo Sabres have re-signed 23-year old defenseman Mike Weber to a two year/$1.9 million deal, General manager Darcy Regier announced today. Weber, 6’2”, 211 lbs., and a native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is yet another important piece of the ever improving defensive core of the Sabres. He led the team in hits last year with 158, and will no doubt improve his game even more with the addition of defenseman Robyn Regehr.

The team still has restricted free-agents Jhonas Enroth, Andrej Sekera and Marc-Andre Gragnani left to re-sign, and the latter two would give the Sabres eight viable options on defense going into next season. This includes Shaone Morrisonn who, if he isn’t traded or successfully waived, is a prime candidate to be demoted to AHL Rochester, given where he would sit on the Sabres’ depth chart and his salary of over $2 million per year.

The re-signing of Weber leaves the Sabres with around $400, 000 of available cap space which, at this or any point, is clearly too close for comfort.
