BUFFALO – Sabres defenseman Mike Weber has signed a contract to play with a Norwegian team in Lorenskog during the NHL lockout, according to a report.
Weber’s the eighth Sabre to sign overseas since the work stoppage began 62 days ago.
Defenseman Christian Ehrhoff, center Tyler Ennis, goalie Jhonas Enroth, defensemen Tyler Myers, Andrej Sekera and Alexander Sulzer and winger Thomas Vanek all signed European deals earlier. Vanek recently returned home.
The 24-year-old Weber compiled one goal, five points, 64 penalty minutes and a minus-19 rating in 51 games last season.
