Nashville, Tenn. (January 9, 2018) - Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced Tuesday that the club has signed defenseman Yannick Weber to a two-year contract worth $650,000 in 2018-19 and $700,000 in 2019-20.
Weber, 29 (9/23/88), has a goal and two assists in 25 games for the Predators this season, his second with the organization. After coming to Nashville in July of 2016, the Morges, Switzerland, native has played in 98 games, including a career-high 73 last season, notching two goals and nine assists while averaging 11:59 of ice time per game.
Since making his NHL debut in the 2008-09 season, the 5-foot-11 defenseman has tallied 81 points (24g-57a) in 372 career games with Montreal, Vancouver and Nashville. He's also posted 95 points (33g-62a) in 155 AHL games with Hamilton and Utica, including an appearance in the 2009 AHL All-Star Classic.
Montreal's fifth choice, 73rd overall (third round), in the 2007 NHL Draft has extensive international playing experience - many of which came as Roman Josi's defensive partner - including the 2010 and 2014 Olympics, three World Championships, three World Junior Championships, and a pair of Under-18 World Championships. After playing several seasons with Bern's junior club, Weber spent two seasons with the OHL's Kitchener Rangers in 2006-07 and 2007-08, being named an OHL Second-Team All-Star for both campaigns. In 2008, he helped the Rangers win the OHL title and advance to the Memorial Cup.
