He finished ahead of teammates Carey Price and Brendan Gallagher.

In nine games in October, the 31-year-old defenseman recorded 10 points (4 goals, 6 assists). He led all NHL defensemen in points (tied with B. Burns and R. Suter). Weber led the league with a +12 differential and in game-winning goals with three. He also finished tied for second place in the NHL with three power play goals. In addition, he led the team with 19 blocked shots. Weber was named third star of the week ending October 30 in the NHL, posting 5 points (2 game-winning goals, 3 assists).
