Beaver County's Mike Weber gets the call from the Buffalo Sabres
Another Pittsburgh player made it to the NHL over the weekend. Defenseman Mike Weber, who played his amateur hockey with the Junior Penguins, was called up from the Rochester Americans by the Buffalo Sabres. Weber,19 years old, 6-2, 205 lbs., had three assists in nine games with Rochester this season, and leads the Amerks with 24 PIM’s. He had a lot of praise from Buffalo head coach Lindy Ruff.

"From Randy (Cunneyworth) and Darcy (Regier), my understanding is that he has been playing a physical game, has been solid defensively, has been a plus player down there," said head Ruff, referring to Weber's performance in Rochester. "Right now he's been the guy that they've really liked and really like the way he's played.

"The game we played him up here, we've really like his presence and his composure." Weber started last season with the Windsor Spitfires of the Ontario Hockey League, before being dealt to the Barrie Colts at the OHL trade deadline.

In a combined 60 games with Windsor and Barrie, Weber posted career highs in goals (6), assists (28) and points (34), along with 172 PIMs. He also contributed six points (0+7) in seven playoff games.

    Mt Lebanon's Parker Milner has a tough time breaking the lineup on the 2006 Pennsylvania State Champions and consequently left Pittsburgh and the Blue Devils to seek a collegiate career and wound up at Boston College. Yesterday, Milner became the 2nd straight goaltender [Plum's Kenny Reiter won at Minnesota Duluth in 2011] to lead his team to an NCAA Championship. Parker Milner led the Eagles to a 4-1 victory over Ferris State and was named the outstanding player of the NCAA Tournament. Congratulations to Parker Milner and the Boston College Eagles.
