Sabres' Weber Out For The Season

News: Mike Weber, who has missed the past two games with a lower-body injury, will have season-ending surgery.
Analysis: The Sabres will miss Mike Weber's physical presence; on the other hand, this can only further help the Sabres secure 30th place, which they will if they lose Monday night. Nikita Zadorov and Tyson Strachan will fill in for Weber.

Sabres' Weber Could Be Done For Season

News: Mike Weber (general soreness) didn't travel with the Sabres to Long Island for Saturday's game.
Analysis: Coach Ted Nolan suggested that Mike Weber's injury could be season-ending, putting his status in doubt for the Sabres' remaining three games after Saturday. Considering that the Sabres were eliminated from playoff contention long ago, it probably makes sense for the team to shut down Weber for good rather than risk him suffering a setback heading into the offseason.

Sabres' Weber Out Friday

News: Mike Weber (soreness) will not play Friday against the Blackhawks, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.
Analysis: Rasmus Ristolainen will likely join the Sabres' lineup in Mike Weber's absence. Weber's next chance to suit up will come on Saturday against the Islanders.

Sabres' Weber Dealing With Soreness

News: Mike Weber is dealing with soreness and may not be available for Friday's game against the Blackhawks, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: If Mike Weber doesn't suit up, Rasmus Ristolainen will likely join the lineup. While this doesn't sound like a serious injury, Weber may also be in danger of missing Saturday's game against the Islanders.

Sabres' Weber Picks Up Assist

News: Mike Weber notched a shorthanded assist in Monday's win over the Coyotes.
Analysis: The Sabres have received surprising scoring production of late from blueliners Andrej Meszaros and Rasmus Ristolainen, but Mike Weber hasn't really gotten involved in the act, as has been the case throughout his time in the NHL. Weber has just seven points in 63 games this season, and only has reached double-digit scoring once in his seven-year career.

Sabres' Weber Practicing

News: Despite being diagnosed with an upper-body injury that would sideline him for at least two weeks, Mike Weber was a full participant at Thursday's morning skate and will play later in the evening against the Canucks, John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Mike Weber's return comes as a major surprise, as he'll only have missed two games following the upper-body procedure. With head coach Ted Nolan electing to sit Nikita Zadorov as a healthy scratch, Weber will likely draw back in on the second pairing next to Rasmus Ristolainen. Weber has been a steady physical presence on the blue line when healthy this season, and Nolan has been happy with his defense prior to the injury.

Sabres' Weber (Upper Body) Out At Least Two Weeks

News: Coach Ted Nolan indicated that Mike Weber (upper body) will miss at least two weeks.
Analysis: Mike Weber was already ruled out for a significant amount of time, but a better timetable has now been released. While two weeks is the minimum amount of time Weber will miss with the injury, it's also possible his absence extends well beyond that.

Sabres' Weber To Miss

News: Mike Weber (upper body) will out of the lineup for the foreseeable future after leaving Friday's game, reports The Buffalo News.
Analysis: Mike Weber has been one of the Sabres' most physical defenders and it seems to have taken a toll. Weber left in the first period against the Rangers and did not return. There's no timetable for Weber's return but it's safe to assume that he will likely miss the majority of the games remaining.

Sabres' Weber's Injury Could Be Long-Term

News: Mike Weber's upper-body injury could be long-term according to his coach, John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Long-term is a flexible window, but there's a good chance Mike Weber misses some games, possibly Sunday against the Predators and Tuesday against the Blue Jackets. More information is still needed though.

Sabres' Weber Leaves With Injury

News: Mike Weber was forced from Friday's game with an undisclosed injury, John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: It isn't clear when Mike Weber suffered the injury, but he did not return to the Sabres' bench for the start of the second period, and will not return to Friday's contest. The team should update his status in the coming days.

Sabres' Weber Available For Tuesday

News: Mike Weber (undisclosed) is considered healthy enough to play Tuesday against the Flames, Amy Moritz of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Mike Weber missed the Sabres' final two games prior to the All-Star break due to the ailment, but appears to be good to go after the extended time off. The blueliner was a full participant in Monday's practice and figures to draw back into the lineup Tuesday, barring any late setbacks in his recovery during the Sabres' gameday skate.

Sabres' Weber (Undisclosed) To Sit Out Next Two

News: Mike Weber (undisclosed) is expected to miss the Sabres' next two games Saturday and Sunday, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: Mike Weber wasn't on the ice for Friday's practice or for the Sabres' morning skate Saturday, as it appears he suffered an injury of some sort during Thursday's 7-0 loss to the Wild. With the blueliner unavailable, Andre Benoit will step into his lineup spot on the Sabres' third pairing.

Sabres' Weber Pots First Of Season

News: Mike Weber potted his first goal of the season -- and the Sabres' only score of the game -- in Tuesday's loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: Mike Weber has recorded exactly one goal in each of the previous three seasons, so it looks like he's already met his quota for 2014-15. The blueliner's lack of offense and poor plus/minus rating make it difficult to extract value from his lofty hit and blocked shot totals.

Sabres Activate Weber For Saturday's Game

News: Mike Weber (knee) has been activated from injured reserve and will play Saturday against the Islanders, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: Mike Weber missed the previous six games after undergoing a minor procedure on his left knee, but was fortunate not to miss more time thanks to a few favorable breaks in the Sabres' schedule. He appears on track to join Andre Benoit on the second pairing.

Sabres' Weber Won't Return Tuesday

News: Mike Weber (knee) will not rejoin the Buffalo lineup Tuesday versus the Red Wings.
Analysis: After undergoing minor knee surgery less than two weeks ago, Mike Weber had set his sights on returning to action before the Christmas break, but the Sabres decided to table those plans since he's not quite at 100 percent health. That being said, he does appear to be closing in on a return, and will have more realistic odds of suiting up for the Sabres' first game out of the break Saturday against the Islanders.

Sabres' Weber (Knee) Targeting A Return Tuesday

News: Mike Weber (knee) is targeting a return for Tuesday against the Red Wings, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Mike Weber has missed the Sabres' previous five games, including Sunday, with a knee injury. If he's unable to make a return Tuesday, his next opportunity to get on the ice will be against the Islanders on Saturday.

Sabres' Weber Returns To Ice

News: Mike Weber (knee) resumed skating Friday, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: Mike Weber isn't expected to return until around Christmastime, so he'll probably still need a few days of conditioning and practice time before he feels comfortable with his knee to play next week. He's already missed the last three games with the injury.

Sabres Place Weber On IR

News: Mike Weber (knee) has been placed on IR.
Analysis: The move is hardly surprising, as Mike Weber is expected to be out through Christmas following minor surgery on his left knee. Mikhail Grigorenko has been recalled to take Weber's place on the roster.

Sabres' Weber To Miss Few Weeks Following Surgery

News: Mike Weber underwent a minor surgery on his left knee Friday that will likely keep him out until after Christmas.
Analysis: The minor arthroscopic procedure seems to have just been done for cleanup purposes, and fortunately it doesn't look like it will result in more than a month-long absence. Still, Mike Weber will be forced to miss the next handful of games, paving the way for Andrej Meszaros (concussion) to reenter the lineup Saturday after a six-game absence. Weber has only four points and a minus-5 rating for the season, but he's been one of the team's top hitters (72 hits in 26 games) and shot blockers (53).

Sabres' Weber Nursing Injury

News: Mike Weber missed Friday's practice with an undisclosed injury.
Analysis: Coach Ted Nolan wouldn't specify the nature of Mike Weber's injury, but said that the blueliner was being evaluated and should have a clearer diagnosis of his condition in advance of Saturday's game versus the Panthers. With Weber considered questionable at best to play Saturday, Andrej Meszaros could draw back into the lineup.

Sabres' Weber Likely To Play Tuesday

News: Mike Weber will likely play on Tuesday, reports The Buffalo News.
Analysis: Head coach Ted Nolan indicated Mike Weber will play once trainers give him the green light. A stay-at-home defenseman who plays a hard, physical game, Weber has four assists in 24 games to go along with 39 PIM. He's throwing his body around a lot of 69 hits and 49 blocked shots, but unless your league counts these categories Weber has no fantasy value.

Sabres' Weber Gets First Point

News: Mike Weber picked up his first point of the season in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Maple Leafs, earning a secondary assist on Matt Moulson's second-period tally.
Analysis: As a stay-at-home defender on a Sabres team that leads the league in shots on goal allowed, Mike Weber is more harmful than helpful to fantasy players, despite his sizable hit and block totals. He posted a minus-29 rating last season and could challenge that mark in 2014-15, as he's already sitting at minus-6 through 16 games.

Sabres' Weber Streaking To Close Out Season

News: Mike Weber logged an assist and led the team with five hits in a 2-1 loss to the Rangers on Thursday.
Analysis: For a guy who has never logged more than 17 points in one season, Mike Weber is closing out the campaign on a strong note. Although the fourth year blue-liner has a goal and two assists during his current three-game point streak, there's no guarantee he'll continue this uncharacteristic production for the remaining two games of the season.

Sabres' Weber Scores First Goal Of Season

News: Mike Weber scored his first goal of the season in Sunday's loss to the Flyers.
Analysis: It's hard to imagine many fantasy players benefited from the tally, as Mike Weber's minus-32 rating makes him largely poisonous in most formats. Not even his 197 hits and 143 blocked shots on the season are enough to make up for that kind of plus-minus damage.

Sabres' Weber Looks To Improve

News: Mike Weber has a league-worst minus-32 rating in 43 games, but doesn't believe it's reflective of his play, reports the Olean Times Herald.
Analysis: The rugged, defensive defenseman is having a tough season, though the same could be said for all of the Sabres. Despite his horrendous plus-minus rating, Mike Weber believe he's playing with the right amount of aggressiveness, but needs to be more mindful of his defensive positioning. Weber had very limited fantasy value coming into the season because of his limited offensive skills, and it's difficult to see his stock climb during the remainder of the season. The Sabres have other defensemen, including Tyler Myers and Christian Ehrhoff, who provide much more value.
