Observations

March 2019 – After a hot start, things started to slow down for Weissbach as he was hindered by his wrist injury throughout the year, missing a few games here and there. He still played very well this year and led the team offensively with the highest PPG and a positive plus-minus on a losing team. Next year should hopefully be his last year with Wisconsin before he heads over and signs a contract with the Sabres. Marcus Griep

December 2018 – Weissbach continues to show utter dominance at the NCAA level, notching 11 points in eight games this year as he comes back off of a right-hand injury and jumps right back on his wave of momentum. The speedy winger shows incredible acceleration to beat defenders and dish off the puck to his teammates time and time again. Marcus Griep

August 2018 – In what could be a steal for Buffalo, Weissbach continues to steam along in the NCAA after posting a great 26 point year (in 34 games) with Wisconsin. The silky speedster has shown some great skill and has shown some elite potential. Weissbach may still be another few years away from NHL action but has shown that he really has some NHL skill in there. Marcus Griep

January 2018 – After producing at nearly a point-per-game last year for the Tri-City Storm in the USHL, Weissbach has made the jump to the NCAA and hasn’t missed a beat. Playing for the Wisconsin Badgers, the Swede has scored six times and added nine assists in 20 games. Speedy and with silky hands the Sabres may have something with this seventh rounder. He’s a few years away but keep an eye on him. Brad Phillips

June 2017 – The Buffalo Sabres drafted Linus Weissbach of the Tri-City Storm in the seventh round of the NHL Draft. Weissbach is a skilled winger who plays with speed and shiftiness. Possesses fantastic hands and a very underrated shot. Lacks power to his game, on both sides, but is a magician with the puck. Can definitely work on his stride and positioning in the defensive end.
