Weber signs three-year, $5 million contract with Sabres

By John Vogl

Mike Weber, who was set to become a restricted free agent July 5, has signed a three-year, $5 million contract with the Sabres.

Weber, who just finished a two-year deal that averaged $950,000 per season, will make $1.5 million in each of the next two years and $2 million in 2015-16.

There was no immediate word from the organization.

"Really excited to be staying in Buffalo for 3 more years," Weber wrote on Twitter, along with the hashtags "IsItOctoberYet" and "letgobuffalo." He then erased it.

The 25-year-old defenseman has spent parts of five seasons in Buffalo. He played 42 games last year, recording one goal, seven points and a plus-3 rating with 70 penalty minutes.

The 6-foot-2, 211-pounder was a healthy scratch to start the season but became one of the more dependable defenders by the end. Coach Ron Rolston continually praised his leadership.
