Habs Make Weber Deal Official
As leaked long ago, the Montreal Canadiens today announced the signing of defenseman Yannick Weber to a 2 year contract, worth a total of $1.7M ($850K annual cap hit).
If we assume that Jaroslav Spacek remains a Canadien and that Alexei Yemelin stays with the team out of training camp, Weber becomes one of 7 d-men on the NHL roster. This means that, while Pierre Gauthier would likely love to upgrade his back end, he has a full house and doesn't NEED to make any other moves on the blueline.
