Brandon Weiner was one of the most dominant defensive players in Delaware hockey history. After joining the Blue Hens from Lawrenceville Academy as true freshman in 2007, Brandon quickly emerged as a reliable, stalwart defenseman, and landed on the team’s top defensive pairing, playing key minutes in all game situations.

|Years with UD Hockey program:||(4) 2007-2011|
Recognized several times by the team, the ESCHL conference, and the ACHA for his play, Brandon was a “gamer” by definition as he shined brightest when the games were most important. This was evidenced by his appearance on the All-Tournament Second Team as a freshman in 2008 and senior in 2011 when UD advanced to the National semifinals.
As a two-year captain from 2009 to 2011, Brandon played a vital role in helping build and shape the team that eventually won the 2012 National Championship, one season after his graduation. Brandon left many impressions during his time as a Blue Hen, but outside his strong leadership and dependability on the ice, his performance in a 2011 National Tournament quarterfinal game may be what he is remembered for most. In what could have been his final career game, Brandon scored two goals in the final two minutes to tie the game with the fourth-ranked Adrian College Bulldogs and eventually set up the game winning goal in double overtime.
Brandon accumulated 28 goals and 55 assists for 83 points in 136 career games. He was the epitome of a two-way defenseman, and despite being one of the most physical and hard-hitting players on the team, Brandon always played with respect and class.
A native of Bridgewater, New Jersey, Brandon graduated with a degree in Leadership. He now resides in the Doylestown, Pennsylvania and serves as Director of Business Development at Eastern Janitorial Services.
