Not much to be said about this. Considering the way he was dominating the American Hockey League as an offensive defenseman, Yannick Weber was the logical one to be called up as a replacement for Andrei Markov. He’ll be in the press box tonight with Alexandre Picard likely to occupy the spot next to P.K. Subban on the third defensive pairing.

The 5’11’’, 198 lbs defenseman played eight games with the Canadiens in his career. He recorded one assist and eight shots on goal and served six penalty minutes, while averaging 14:20 minutes of ice time per game.

Weber recorded 12 points (8-4-12) in 15 games with the Bulldogs this season. Four of his goals have been tallied on the power play. He is first amongst AHL defensemen in goals and tied for fifth in points. He also collected 51 shots on goal and served 10 penalty minutes
