The Sabres have recalled defenseman Mike Weber from Portland to fill in for the injured Jaroslav Spacek. The Pittsburgh native had just returned to the Pirates lineup missing a couple of weeks due to arthroscopic knee surgery. From the Sabres:
This is the third recall of the season for Weber (20 years old, 6’2” 199 lbs.), who did not record any points in two-games with the Sabres in October and did not see action during his second recall in December. Weber currently has six points (1+5), 86 PIMs and a plus-9 rating in 37 games with Portland this season. Weber was Buffalo’s second-round choice (57th overall) in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. Weber recorded three assists and a plus-12 rating in 16 games with Buffalo last season.
