Canucks' Weber Scores Game Winner

News: Yannick Weber potted his first goal of the year and added an assist in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Oilers. He also fired four shots on goal, matching his season high.
Analysis: Yannick Weber picked a great time to find twine for the first time this season, blasting home the game winner with 9:28 remaining in the game. He only has four points in 14 games but would certainly garner further fantasy consideration if he can find a way to chip in from the back end more often.

Canucks' Weber Takes The Ice Sunday

News: Yannick Weber (unspecified issue) returned to the ice Sunday, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Yannick Weber, who has nine points in 45 games to date, sat out Saturday's win over the Kings, but his presence on the ice Sunday suggests that he has a shot to return to the Canucks' lineup as soon as Monday against the Ducks.

Canucks' Weber Likely Out Saturday

News: Yannick Weber was not at Saturday's morning skate and will likely be replaced in the lineup by call-up Frank Corrado for Saturday's game against the Kings, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Yannick Weber, who has been playing on the third defensive pairing, is likely dealing with an injury. He's been logging about 15-16 minutes of ice time over the last two weeks, but he's still averaging just 11:21 for the season.

Canucks' Weber Tallies Fifth Goal Of Season

News: Yannick Weber potted his fifth goal of the season -- a power-play tally -- in Thursday's overtime loss to the Avalanche.
Analysis: Though he scored the game's opening goal, Yannick Weber was minus-2 on Thursday, exemplifying the struggles he continues to go through defensively. Weber has now scored twice in his last three games while averaging 16:26 of ice time in that span. He only has nine points in 43 games this season, but logged 3:24 of power-play time on Thursday, a sign that things could be trending upward. Still, he has never posted more than 18 points in a season and is currently on the third defensive pairing in Vancouver.

Canucks' Weber Nets Game-Winner Against Sabres

News: Yannick Weber netted the game-wining goal in Sunday's win over Buffalo.
Analysis: It was a solid outing for Yannick Weber, who also finished with five shots on goal and a plus-2 rating. Weber now has three points in his last eight games, but has only tallied four goals and eight points in 41 games on the season. Don't expect much offense from the 25-year-old, who averages only 10:43 of ice time per game.

Yannick Weber

Weber's GWG Sparks Vancouver

News: Yannick Weber scored the game-winning goal in the third period of Saturday's game against Calgary.
Analysis: Offensive production emphatically is not the norm for this stay-at-home defenseman, who has just three goals and three assists in 34 appearances this season.

Yannick Weber

Canucks' Weber Held Scoreless For Swiss In Sochi

News: Yannick Weber failed to register a point in his four games for Switzerland during the Olympics.
Analysis: With just three goals in their four Olympic contests, Yannick Weber was hardly the only Swiss skater that didn't leave much of an imprint in Sochi. Most importantly, Weber showed he was healthy after missing some time with an undisclosed injury leading up to the break. He should resume practicing with the Canucks on Saturday.

Canucks' Weber Injured Friday

News: Yannick Weber (undisclosed) did not return after the first intermission of Friday's game against the Jets.
Analysis: There was no word on the extent of the injury or exactly what it was, but assistant coach Mike Sullivan did say that the team would likely have to recall a defenseman. Consider Yannick Weber day-to-day until the team updates his condition.

Canucks' Weber Tallies On Power Play

News: Yannick Weber scored a power-play goal while playing a season-high 28:22 in Saturday's shootout win over Calgary.
Analysis: Though it won't count in fantasy, Yannick Weber also scored in the shootout, proving that the coach has the confidence to use the offensive defenseman in the skills competition. Weber only has five points in 27 games this season, but has averaged 3:21 of power-play time in his last four games, making him worth a look in some deep leagues.

Canucks' Weber Recalled From AHL

News: Yannick Weber was recalled from AHL Utica on Sunday, the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Alexander Edler is set to miss an indefinite period of time with a knee injury, so the team went ahead and added some blue-line depth in Yannick Weber. Weber failed to notch a point in 10 games with Vancouver earlier this season.

Canucks' Weber Clears Waivers

News: Yannick Weber cleared waivers and was assigned to AHL Utica on Tuesday, Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Yannick Weber went unclaimed after failing to deliver any points and posting a minus-2 rating over 10 games with the Canucks. The team could choose to bring him back at some point if injuries test their depth on the blue line.

Canucks' Weber Placed On Waivers

News: Yannick Weber was placed on waivers by the Canucks on Monday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

Canucks' Weber A Defensive Liability In Loss To Sharks

News: Yannick Weber was a minus-3 in Vancouver's 5-0 preseason loss to the Sharks Tuesday evening.
Analysis: His offense has impressed so far in the preseason but his defensive play was a disaster Tuesday night. Yannick Weber will need to put this game behind him immediately and focus on Thursday's tilt with the Rangers. The new Canuck defenseman has the offensive skill to crack the Canucks roster but his defensive play may end up holding him back.

Canucks' Weber Shines In Preseason Win

News: Yannick Weber recorded a goal and an assist in Monday's 6-1 win over the Coyotes.
Analysis: Yannick Weber is quietly having an impressive preseason and his work is catching the eyes of many. He has likely earned on spot on the Canucks opening roster and could turn his career around this season. His blistering slapshot was on display Monday as he blasted one by the Coyotes goaltender. His three shots on goal in the game show he hasn't lost his confidence to shoot the puck.

Canucks' Weber Impresses Against Oilers

News: Yannick Weber tallied an assist and logged 20:15 of ice time in a 5-2 preseason loss to the Oilers on Saturday night.
Analysis: Yannick Weber was originally a long shot to make the team, but he appears to be playing his way onto the roster. He blocked three shots and made some stellar defensive plays.

Weber Signs With Vancouver

News: Yannick Weber signed a one-year, $650,000 contract with Vancouver, according to Renaud Lavoie of RDS.
Analysis: Yannick Weber was allowed to become a free agent after Montreal did not issue him a qualifying offer. He has an offensive flair to his game, but saw himself in and out of the lineup this season due to injury and being a healthy scratch on occasion.

Yannick Weber

Canadiens Don't Qualify Weber

News: The Canadiens did not extend a qualifying offer to Yannick Weber, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: As a result, Yannick Weber becomes an unrestricted free agent. He'll garner interest from a team looking for an offensive-minded defenseman with a hard slapshot that can be deployed on the power play.

Canadiens’ Weber Healthy Scratch Thursday

News: Yannick Weber will be a healthy scratch for Thursday's game against the Jets.
Analysis: After adding Jared Tinordi to the back-end, Yannick Weber is the odd man out for Thursday's game, where Montreal is battling for home-ice advantage throughout the playoffs.

Canadiens' Weber Remains In Lineup

News: Yannick Weber played for a third straight game Saturday night, skating a season-high 18:02 in Montreal's loss to Washington.
Analysis: Yannick Weber had been on the outs recently because of a knee injury, but was primarily a healthy scratch for much of the season before that. But he's apparently moved ahead of Davis Drewiske, who was the defenseman demoted to the press box with Raphael Diaz's return Saturday from a concussion. Weber has two points in his recent three-game stretch, and he will get some time on the team's second power-play unit.

Habs Get Weber Back

News: Yannick Weber (knee) is slated to play Wednesday against the Penguins, the Canadiens' official site reports.
Analysis: Yannick Weber, who last suited up on March 7, returns to the lineup after missing the Habs' last 18 games. He has seen just under 18 total minutes of ice time with the team this season, so a wait-and-see approach is in order with regards to using him in fantasy lineups.

Habs Weber Could Play Wednesday

News: Yannick Weber (knee) is listed as game-time decision for Wednesday's game against the Penguins.
