Neddie Weaver was from Halifax, Nova Scotia. A superb hockey defenceman, Weaver was one of the best in the years prior to World War I. He was the captain of the Halifax Crescents in 1905, the year the team won the Nova Scotia Championship. Weaver had a strong physique that aided him in being able to give and take bumps and hits in the game.

He played the cover point position, playing several feet in front of the point and was known for his ability to lift the puck into the net. (In those days, defense was not played as left and right wing alongside one another as it is now.) Many professional teams in the National League, especially the Montreal Wanderers, sought after him.

He, however, chose to remain in Halifax, playing hockey and working at his job at Imperial Oil. Weaver continued playing hockey until 1912 before ending his sporting career. Neddie Weaver is an Original Sport Hall of Fame Inductee.
