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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
