The Buffalo Sabres have re-signed young defenseman Mike Weber, inking him to a multi-year deal Monday.

Weber, 23, turned his first full NHL season last year, playing 58 games for the Sabres. The 6-foot-2, 211-pound American led all Sabres in hits with 158. He also had 4 goals and 13 assists.

Weber played in all seven games of Buffalo’s first-round playoff series against Philadelphia, and was third on the team with 17 hits. He also had one assist and 6 penalty minutes in that series.

After seeing brief call-ups in his first two seasons after turning pro, Weber spent the entire 2009-10 season with the American Hockey League's Portland Pirates, amassing 5 goals and 21 points.
