Wrist - (Updated - 3/7/13)
Stephen Weiss is out for the season with the injury, but is still active at the negotiation table. He's looking to re-sign with the Panthers but may have to settle for a discounted contract having played poorly over the 17 games he was healthy for this season. (Updated 4/5/13).
03/07/2013 21:47 Capitals blitz Panthers early, crush Panthers 7-1
John Erskine, Wojtek Wolski, John Carlson and Mike Ribeiro all scored before the game was 8 1/2 minutes old, and the Washington Capitals climbed out of a tie for last in the Eastern Conference by beating the Florida Panthers 7-1 Thursday night.
Stephen Weiss enters the final season of his current contract looking to build upon a productive 2011-2012 season that saw him light the lamp 20 times and chip in with 37 helpers. The veteran centerman reached the 20 goal plateau for the third-straight season and will once again be looked upon to lead the Panthers. His consistency leaves a bit to be desired, as 15 of his season's 57 points came in five separate three-point games. Weiss, who developed strong chemistry with Kris Versteeg, has hit the 50-point mark three seasons in a row and by all indications, a fourth is within reach. Although his points tend to come in bunches, Weiss is a safe option in the later rounds of deeper leagues, especially if he can challenge 20 goals again. (Updated 8/14/12)
