Weise has just one assist in eight games this season and will sit out as a healthy scratch on Thursday with Michael Raffl re-entering the lineup. It has not been an ideal start to the season for Weise, who signed a four-year deal this offseason.
The Flyers have signed Dale Weise to a four-year deal worth $9.4 million ($2.35M AAV).
Weise, 27, spent his time with the Canadiens and Blackhawks in 2015-16, totalling 14 goals and 13 assists (27 points) in 71 games. He struggled in a smaller role after being acquired by the Blackhawks, picking up just a single assist in 15 games. He is a solid top-9 forward who can play physically as well as pack a bit of an offensive punch for the Flyers in 2016-17.
The Blackhawks have acquired Dale Weise and Tomas Fleischman from the Canadiens for Phillip Danault and a 2018 2nd round pick.
Weise, 27, is a pending unrestricted free agent and the Canadiens playoff hopes are slim, so they’ve moved him to a contender. Weise is having a career-year, having posted 14 goals and 12 assists (26 points) in 56 games with Montreal.
Weise suffered a concussion in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Head coach Michel Therrien did not call the injury a concussion at first, however it seemed pretty clear that he had suffered a head injury opposed to what Therrien called a "body" injury. John Moore will miss game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals as a result of his two-game suspension for the hit on Weise.
Weise will not play in game six because of a "body" injury.
After suffering what appeared to be a head injury in game five, head coach Michel Therrien denied that Weise has a concussion and will miss tonight's game with a "body" injury. John Moore was suspended two games for the hit to the head, so it is strange for Therrien to describe it as a body injury.
