Team(s) Interested: Calgary Flames, Philadelphia Flyers- Since the signing of the Alexi Emelin before the summer, there have been much speculation about the future of Yannick Weber. Weber is a defenseman who started the year off as a fourth line grinder, but made his way back to the blue line after an injury to ex-Habs Jaroslav Spacek. Weber currently leads the team in D-Man scoring, with 3 goals. Recently, there was a rumor that Jarome Iginla was heading to Montreal for Max Pacioretty and Yannick Weber. While that deal was never going to happen, it is still believed that Weber could be shipped to Calgary for Corey Sarich. It is also believed that the Flyers could be looking for a defenseman, with Chris Pronger on the sidelines with a concussion. He has been plagued with injuries this season, so who knows if he can stay healthy for the rest of the year? Some people say a right handed d-man is something the Flyers have been looking for for a while now. Weber is just that. Weber’s strength is his ability to dominate a Power play.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
