The St. Louis Blues have signed 28-year-old defenseman Mike Weber to a professional tryout contract, according to a report from the Globe & Mail’s James Mirtle.
Weber has spent almost all of his career with the Buffalo Sabres after being drafted in the 2nd round (57th overall) of the 2006 draft. He has played 341 of his 351 career games there, getting traded to the Washington Capitals in February for a 2017 3rd round draft pick.

Weber played just 10 games for the Capitals as they struggled through some late-season injuries on the blue line. He played in two playoff games and did not register a point in his time there.
Prior to that, he logged 35 games with the Sabres, over which he tallied a goal and five points with a 0.83% adjusted CF%Rel throughout the course of the season.
