Sensing an extension in the NHL work stoppage, Sabres defenseman Mike Weber has signed with Lorenskog of Norway's elite league, according to RB.no.
Weber is scheduled to arrive in Norway on Saturday, according to a Google translation of the report, and is expected to play his first game Thursday.
"He wanted to wait to sign awhile, but now it looks like the lockout is prolonged," Lorenskog sports director Atle Olsen told Rome Blad, according to the translation.
Weber will be one of seven Sabres playing overseas, joining Christian Ehrhoff and Alexander Sulzer (Germany), Tyler Myers and Tyler Ennis (Switzerland), Andrej Sekera (Slovakia) and Jhonas Enroth (Sweden). Thomas Vanek recently returned after a month in Austria, though he said he might return if the lockout continued.
