SABRES ACQUIRE THIRD-ROUND PICK FOR MIKE WEBER

BUFFALO, N.Y. (February 23, 2016) — The Buffalo Sabres today announced the team has acquired a third-round pick in the 2017 NHL Draft from the Washington Capitals in exchange for defenseman Mike Weber.

“It’s difficult to trade someone that has been a part of the organization for 10 years, but I think this is a good opportunity for the player and for our organization,” General Manager Tim Murray said. “I would like to thank Mike for his time with the Sabres and wish him the best in Washington.”

Drafted by Buffalo in the second round (57th overall) of the 2006 NHL Draft, Weber recorded 53 points (9+44) and 409 penalty minutes in 341 games for the Sabres from 2007-2016. This season, the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native has five points (1+4) and a plus-3 rating in 35 games.
