Will Weber (born October 28, 1988) is an American professional ice hockey defenseman. He is currently playing for the Eispiraten Crimmitschau of the DEL2. Weber was selected by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 2nd round (53rd overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.
Playing career[edit | edit source]
As a junior, Weber played the 2007–08 season with the Chicago Steel of the United States Hockey League (USHL) who had selected him as the first overall pick at the 2007 USHL Entry Draft. He then attended Miami University where he played four seasons of NCAA Division I ice hockey with the Miami RedHawks, where he was recognized for his outstanding performance during the 2009–10 when he was named the CCHA Best Defensive Defenseman. In 2011, as an alternate captain, he led his team to their first-ever Conference Championship title, and was named to the All-CCHA Tournament Team.
After three full seasons with the Blue Jackets AHL affiliate, the Springfield Falcons, Weber left the Jackets organization as a free agent and was belatedly signed to a two-way AHL contract with the San Antonio Rampage. After attending the Rampage's 2015 training camp, he was assigned to ECHL affiliate, the Fort Wayne Komets to begin the 2015–16 season. Weber remained with the Komets for the majority of the season, leading the club with 103 penalty minutes in 64 contests.
Having only featured in 2 scoreless games with the Rampage, Weber was not retained in the off-season and on August 17, 2016, he opted to continue in the ECHL with the Fort Wayne Komets, signing a one-year deal.
Upon completing his second season with the Komets, Weber as a free agent opted to sign abroad in agreeing to a one-year deal with Germany second tier outfit, Eispiraten Crimmitschau of the DEL2, on July 26, 2017.
