BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A Buffalo Sabre who appeared in over 300 games will don a new jersey in the coming weeks.
The Sabres announced Tuesday defenseman Mike Weber has been traded for a third-round draft pick from the Washington Capitals. The Sabres received the exciting pick due to their willingness to retain half of Weber’s salary for the Capitals.
Weber, who scored 54 points in his 341 games from 2007 through 2016, scored five points through this season.
In a statement, General Manager Tim Murray said, “It’s difficult to trade someone that has been part of the organization for 10 years, but I think this is a good opportunity for the player and for our organization. I would like to thank Mike for his time with the Sabres and wish him the best in Washington.”
