The Wild has turned left-shot defenseman Mike Weber's AHL contract into an NHL two-way for the rest of the season.

The move provides the Wild with more defenseman depth.

The 29-year-old has played 351 NHL games for the Buffalo Sabres and Washington Capitals, scoring nine goals and 44 assists.

Iowa coach Derek Lalonde has raved about Weber's leadership in that locker room since being brought in. He has eight points and 92 penalty minutes in 54 Baby Wild games.

Weber is on waivers today as a formality.
