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.

Weiss injured his groin nine days ago in the first game of his conditioning stint with Grand Rapids (AHL).

Weiss has been a healthy scratch in all but one of the Red Wings first eight games. The 31-year-old played just 8:03 and failed to record a point or shot. He has been a huge disappointment for Detroit since signing a big deal two summers ago. He will head to Grand Rapids where he will try to get back up to speed and hopefully crack the Wings' lineup when he returns.
Weiss was a healthy scratch for the first five games, but he will get into the lineup tonight vs. the Maple Leafs because Johan Franzen is out with a knee injury. Weiss had a terrible debut season in Detroit in 2013-14, he had just four points (2G / 2A) in 26 games. He will look to earn himself a permanent roster spot with a good performance tonight.

Weiss, 31, had a disastrous debut season with the Red Wings and 2014-15 will start with him sitting in the press box.

After a terrible debut season with the Red Wings due to injuries, it looks like 2014-15 will start on a sour note.

After signing a five-year $24.5 million dollar deal with the Red Wings this offseason, Weiss scored just two goals with two assists in 26 games… Yikes. Making an average of $4.9 million of the next four years, the Red Wings are certainly hoping for a healthy Weiss next year. Paying a player over a million dollars per point is not what GM Ken Holland is in to.
