“I figured out at an early age what I was very good at. Sure, I evolved my skills but I didn’t play outside of my skillset. I didn’t go and try and score goals. I knew that I was very good at passing the puck out, that was my best asset was getting that puck away from somebody and passing it clean right on the tape every single time,” said Weaver. “I played within my means. With every problem that I had, I found a solution. I was a solution-based player.”
