    Name  Stephen Weiss

    Shoots  L
    9/23/2014 6:37:00 PM
    Description: Red Wings center Stephen Weiss begins the season on Detroit's second line, but will not be fantasy relevant.
    Insight: After battling injury and playing in only 26 games a season ago, Weiss has much to prove. He finished with four points in 2013-14, and will most likely go undrafted heading into this season.
     
    3/6/2014 11:32:00 AM
    Description: Red Wings center Stephen Weiss (sports hernia) left Monday's practice with groin pain which isn't good for a guy who has sports hernia surgery around Christmas time.
    Insight: Weiss was trying to rush back because of all the injuries the Red Wings have had to deal with at center. He has two goals and two assists in 26 games which simply isn't enough production to be a viable fantasy option.
     
    2/8/2014 10:16:00 AM
    Description: Red Wings center Stephen Weiss (sports hernia) participated in Wednesday's practice without anyt problems and should be back for the first game following the break.
    Insight: Weiss has two goals and two assists in 26 games which simply isn't enough production to be a viable fantasy option.
     
    1/31/2014 9:53:00 AM
    Description: Red Wings center Stephen Weiss (sports hernia) is making progress, but is still a long way away from returning to the ice, according to a Detroit News report.
    Insight: Weiss is skating on his own and is targeting the end of February for a return. He has two goals and two assists in 26 games which simply isn't enough production to be a vioable fantasy option.
     
    12/14/2013 5:25:00 PM
    Description: Red Wings GM Ken Holland told the Detroit Free Press that center Stephen Weiss (groin) will be out at least through Christmas.
    Insight: Weiss has frequently been injured this season and hasn't produced fantasy-worthy numbers when he's played. He has two goals, four points and 28 SOG in 26 games.
     
    12/12/2013 12:14:00 PM
    Description: Red Wings center Stephen Weiss will miss Thursday's game against Tampa Bay with a sore groin.
    Insight: Weiss can't shake the injury bug this season. He did have three straight 20-goal seasons for Florida from 2009-11, however, so it's way too early to give up on him.
     
    11/23/2013 7:32:00 PM
    Description: Red Wings center Stephen Weiss is back in the lineup after missing six games with a pulled groin. SOURCE: MLive.com
    Insight: Weiss has only logged two goals in 17 games this season. He did have three straight 20-goal seasons for Florida from 2010-12, however, so it's way too early to give up on him.
     
    11/23/2013 12:45:00 PM
    Description: Detroit center Stephen Weiss (groin) is doubtful for Saturday's game.
    Insight: Weiss, who has just two goals and three points this season, has been out since Nov. 7. His absence will ensure Gustav Nyquist remains in a top-six role after scoring two goals in his debut Thursday.
     
    11/8/2013 5:51:00 PM
    Description: Detroit center Stephen Weiss (groin) will miss Saturday's game.
    Insight: Weiss is day-to-day with the injury, according to mlive.com. The 30-year-old has two goals and three points in 17 games this season.
     
    10/2/2013 10:40:00 AM
    Description: Detroit center Stephen Weiss (groin) is probable for Wednesday's game against Buffalo.
    Insight: Weiss is expected to center the line with Daniel Alfredsson and Johan Franzen. That's a nice pair of wingers to play with and his fantasy totals should be very good this season.
     
    3/5/2013 6:12:00 PM
    Description: Florida center Stephen Weiss (wrist) will need season-ending surgery, Panthers GM Dale Tallon said.
    Insight: Weiss has been bothered by the wrist injury all season and only had four points in 17 games. Marcel Goc should continue to center the second line with wingers Tomas Fleischmann and Tomas Kopecky.
     
    2/27/2013 1:44:00 PM
    Description: Florida center Stephen Weiss is questionable for Thursday's game against Buffalo after heading home for the funeral of his grandmother.
    Insight: Weiss has scored 20 goals in three straight season, though he has just one this season in 14 games. A -11 rating is also troublesome for fantasy owners.
     
    2/7/2013 10:20:00 PM
    Description: Florida center Stephen Weiss has two points and six SOG in three games since returning from a groin injury. He scored his first goal of the season Thursday night.
    Insight: Weiss has scored 20 goals in three straight seasons. He didn't take a shot in his first three games of the season before getting injured so it's good to see that he is firing away now.
     
    2/2/2013 10:08:00 AM
    Description: Florida center Stephen Weiss (groin) is probable for Sunday's game against Buffalo after missing four games.
    Insight: Weiss had 57 points (20 G, 37 A), 149 SOG, 60 PIM and 17 PPP last season and is a must start when on the ice.
     
    1/31/2013 2:37:00 PM
    Description: Florida center Stephen Weiss (groin) will miss another game Thursday after failing to sway coach Kevin Dineen during the morning skate. SOURCE: South Florida Sun-Sentinel
    Insight: Weiss tried to skate hard Thursday morning but Dineen doesn't want the forward to aggravate his groin injury. Weiss had one assist in three games but didn't attempt a single shot on goal. He had 57 points (20 G, 37 A), 149 SOG, 60 PIM and 17 PPP last season.
     
    1/26/2013 7:35:00 PM
    Description: Florida center Stephen Weiss will miss his second straight game Saturday against the Flyers due to a lower-body injury.
    Insight: Weiss had one assist in the first three games but didn't attempt a single shot on goal in that time.
     
    1/26/2013 10:48:00 AM
    Description: Red Wings center Stephen Weiss (groin) is skating on his own, but isn't close to returning.
    Insight: Weiss has frequently been injured this season and hasn't produced fantasy-worthy numbers when he's played. He has a target of Feb 26 for his return to the ice, but with two goals, four points and 28 SOG in 26 games he likely won't help your fantasy roster.
     
    1/25/2013 10:59:00 AM
    Description: Florida center Stephen Weiss, who was a late sratch on Thursday, is doubtful for Saturday's game against Philadelphia due to a lower body injury.
    Insight: The Panthers are down several other regular forwards, so losing their top center (20 G, 37 A last season) is going to hurt.
     
    12/23/2011 12:35:00 AM
    Description: Stephen Weiss left Thursday's game against Ottawa in the first period with an upper-body injury. TSN
    Insight: The Panthers play again on Friday, but Weiss could be out of the lineup depending on the severity of the injury. The Panthers are down several other regular forwards, so this injury to the team's second-leading scorer (32 points) does not come at a good time.
     
    12/6/2011 1:22:00 AM
    Description: Stephen Weiss scored two goals and added an assist in the Panthers' 5-4 win over Washington on Monday. NHL.com
    Insight: Weiss is well on his way to his best-ever NHL season with 29 points (11g-18a) and a +15 in 27 games. Even more surprising, the Panthers have extended their lead in the Southeast Division over second-place Washington to seven points, the largest of any division leader.
