2006-07: Will Weber managed 38 points last season while playing the back end for Gaylord High School.
2007-08: Weber had an up and down season with the Chicago Steel. He twice won the Defensive Player of the Week award in the first two months of the season, but struggled with his production and consistency as the season continued. Weber took a lot of bad penalties and didn’t contribute enough offensively to justify his lack of discipline. Weber was in and out of Chicago’s lineup during the season, and did not play in the playoffs.
2008-09: In his freshman year at Miami University (Ohio), Weber appeared in 38 games and scored 3 goals, 2 assists with a team-leading 75 PIMs.
2009-10: Weber skated in 43 games as a sophomore, scoring 1 goal and 9 assists for 10 points along with 62 PIMs.
2010-11: Weber skated in 33 of 39 games for Miami University as a junior – missing time early in the year after a freak accident in which his neck was cut by an opposing player's skate. Weber was one of the top defensive defensemen for the RedHawks and was named to the CCHA's All-Tournament team as Miami, after finishing third in the regular season, captured the CCHA playoff championship. Weber finished +7 for the season and scored 1 goal with 10 assists and had 57 PMs. The RedHawks fell to New Hampshire, 3-1, in their first NCAA tournament game.
2011-12: Weber finished his senior season as captain of the Miami RedHawks. He is a defensive defenseman, so when he totaled only four assists on the 40-game season it was no surprise. He got his first taste of professional hockey during a two game stint with the Springfield Falcons of the AHL.
Weber moves great for a big guy and causes damage when he throws around his 227-pound frame. His mobility is extremely impressive and a key reason he was referred to as a top prospect in the 2007 draft.
Weber is going to start the season with Springfield to help tailor his defensive ability to the professional game. There is a small chance he’ll see some time in the NHL, but he most likely won’t break into the show until the 2013-14 season.
