Habs sign Yannick Weber


The Montreal Canadiens have announced the signing of defencemen Yannick Weber to a three-year contract. The terms of the deal have not been disclosed yet.

Weber, 19, played for the Kitchener Rangers of the OHL last season, scoring 55 points in 59 games. He also played in the Memorial Cup, where his Rangers lost in final vs the Spokane Chiefs.

Weber will likely head to Hamilton for a few years of seasoning before before turning pro.

Once you sign them to a pro contract they either have to play on your team or in the farm team no?

hamilton is our farm team. Anyway, thats pretty impressive from a defenseman. He also captained the swiss team at the World juniors for what it's worth.
