PLYMOUTH, MI – Plymouth Whalers General Manager/Head Coach Mike Vellucci announced today the Plymouth Whalers traded goalie Jeff Weber to the Barrie Colts for a fourth round pick in the 2006 OHL Priority Draft.
Weber joined Plymouth at the beginning of the 2002 season when he was traded from the SS Marie Greyhounds. Weber made the most of his chances as the Whalers backup last season with a record of 13-2-2 and a goals against average of 2.32 and one shutout. His solid performance last season earned him the chance to be drafted by the Buffalo Sabres in the 8th round this past summer. This year Weber’s numbers weren’t quite as good as he racked up 2-4-4 record and a gaa of 3.04. The move trimmed the Whalers roster to two goalies with overage Paul Drew and Ryan Nie sharing the duties in net.
