Weiss had a brutal game in Boston on Saturday. He turned the puck over on the power-play twice, both of which turned into shorthanded goals for the B’s. It is safe to say, he didn’t see much ice time after that, playing just 8:18 on the night. He will sit in favour of Tomas Jurco.

Weiss (shoulder) will return to the Red Wings lineup on Tuesday.
Weiss has missed the last four games with a shoulder injury, but he will be back in the lineup tonight vs. Buffalo. Without Weiss in the lineup, the Red Wings went 0-2-2 so he should provide a nice offensive boost tonight.

Weiss missed practice for personal reasons; expect to play Saturday.
Well I am sure Weiss’ absence at practice this morning worried a ton of Red Wings fans and fantasy owners who just picked him up.

Weiss was listed as a game-time decision for Thursday’s game, but did play and actually recorded a goal and two assists, which gives him nine points (4G / 5A) in seven games since returning from injury. This is the Stephen Weiss that the Red Wings were expecting when they signed him to a fat contract, but with the recent success you have to remember he is as big of an injury risk as any player in the NHL. Monitor his status prior to Saturday’s clash with the Rangers.
Tonight will be Weiss’ second game of the season and just the 28th game that he has played in the last two seasons with Detroit. He had a successful conditioning stint and the Wings’ are hoping he will be able to stay healthy for an extended period of time. The former four-time 20-plus goal scorer will play on the third line with Darren Helm and Tomas Jurco as well as on the second power-play.
