Wings' Weiss (Groin) Could Return Saturday

News: Stephen Weiss (groin) will play with AHL Grand Rapids on Friday, and could return Saturday if everything goes well, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss' conditioning stint was announced earlier in the week, though his return date was initially slotted for next Monday or Wednesday. He has played in just one game with the Wings this season, and had just four all of last season in 26 games with the Red Wings.

Red Wings' Weiss Out At Least Another Week

News: Stephen Weiss (groin) is expected to return to the Red Wings after playing one game with AHL Grand Rapids next weekend as part of a conditioning stint, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss was hoping to play Friday night for the Red Wings against the Blackhawks, but he will be out at least another week. He will miss at least five more games, and is now on track to return the Red Wings either Nov. 24 or Nov. 26.

Red Wings' Weiss Targeting Nov. 14 Return

News: Stephen Weiss (groin) hopes to be available for the Red Wings in their Nov. 14 game against the Blackhawks, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss indicated that he felt good after skating for the second straight day Saturday, creating optimism that he might not be far off of a return. If he's able to practice again Sunday or Monday, the Red Wings could send him off on a conditioning assignment at AHL Grand Rapids in preparation for his return to the lineup next weekend.

Red Wings' Weiss Resumes Skating

News: Stephen Weiss (groin) skated on his own prior to Friday's morning session, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss had been limited to off-ice activity since injuring his groin nine days earlier, so the fact that he's resumed skating suggests he's starting to notice some improvement. After he takes part in a few practices with the team, the Red Wings are expected to send Weiss back to AHL Grand Rapids to finish off the conditioning assignment that was previously interrupted by the injury.

Detroit's Weiss Not Dealing With Long-Term Injury

News: Stephen Weiss (groin) could resume practicing over the weekend, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss was placed on injured reserve after aggravating his groin during a conditioning assignment at AHL Grand Rapids last week, but GM Ken Holland doesn't believe it's a long-term concern for the center. Though Weiss is still at least 10 days away from being ready to play, the Red Wings will be able to send him back to Grand Rapids for another game or two since the first stint was interrupted. There's optimism that Weiss will be back with the Red Wings by the end of the month, but unless the team suffers a rash of injuries, he'll have a tough time earning a regular spot in the lineup.

Red Wings Place Weiss On IR

News: Stephen Weiss (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Friday, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: As was expected when the Red Wings pulled Stephen Weiss off his conditioning assignment Wednesday, he'll head to IR while the team assesses the extent of his groin injury. Johan Franzen is expected to be activated from IR prior to Sunday's game against the Sabres, taking Weiss' spot on the 23-man roster.

Red Wings Recall Weiss From Conditioning Stint

News: Stephen Weiss (groin) was recalled from his conditioning stint with AHL Grand Rapids after experiencing a setback Wednesday night, Sportsnet's Damien Cox reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss would not have been able to play in Grand Rapids' next game Friday, so the Red Wings to decided to put his rehab work on hold. It remains to be seen how much the setback will delay Weiss' return to NHL action. He'll more than likely be placed on injured reserve within the next couple of days, clearing the way for Johan Franzen's (groin) activation over the weekend.

Wings' Weiss Sustains Lower Body Injury

News: Stephen Weiss will not play in the third period of his conditioning assignment at AHL Grand Rapids after sustaining a lower body injury, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss had been on a rehab assignment to keep him fresh for when needed by Detroit, but it seems as if his absence may last a bit longer than expected. Look for the team to update his status as soon as more information is known.

Wings Send Weiss Out On Conditioning Assignment

News: Stephen Weiss was sent to AHL Grand Rapids on a conditioning assignment, MLive.com's Brendan Savage reports.
Analysis: After appearing in just 26 games in his first season in Detroit due to a sports hernia, Stephen Weiss has been a healthy scratch in all but one the Wings' eight games this season. Since ice time has been hard to come by with the parent club, Weiss will simply head to Grand Rapids for games Wednesday and Friday as a means of staying fresh for when the Red Wings might ultimately need him. Weiss will rejoin the Red Wings in Buffalo for their game Sunday, and remain on the Red Wings' 23-man roster through the duration of his stay with Grand Rapids.

Wings' Weiss Fully Healthy

News: Stephen Weiss was able to play without any pain in Saturday's 1-0 overtime win against Toronto, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss only played for eight minutes and played at left wing, a new position for him, but looked comfortable out there. With Johan Franzen out until at least Saturday, Weiss should have some time to prove he still has some good hockey left in him.

Wings' Weiss A Likely Healthy Scratch For Opener

News: Stephen Weiss looks like he'll be a healthy scratch for Thursday's season opener against the Bruins, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss didn't practice Wednesday on any of the top four lines or on any of the Wings' special teams units, a sign he'll be bound for the press box Thursday. The former 60-point scorer has appeared in just 43 games combined over the past two seasons, and though he's now healthy, the 31-year-old seems to be on the downside of his career. It may prove exceedingly difficult for Weiss to reemerge as the second-line center the Wings were counting on him to be when they signed him to a five-year contract in 2013.

Red Wings' Weiss (Hernia) Feeling Healthy

News: Stephen Weiss indicated he's feeling healthy following his April 21 surgery to repair his sports hernia, NHL.com's Dan Rosen reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss was a disaster in his first season with the Red Wings after inking a five-year, $24.5 million deal last summer, appearing in only 26 games and totaling four points. He ultimately required a pair of sports hernia surgeries that prevented a second-half return, but after spending the last four months recovering, he appears ready to go for 2014-15. Weiss will be given the opportunity to win back his job as the Wings' No. 2 center, but it seems dubious that he'll be able to return to the 50-point form he showed during his prime years with the Panthers.

Red Wings' Weiss Has Another Surgery

News: Stephen Weiss (sports hernia) underwent surgery last week to remove scar tissue, Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News reports.
Analysis: Unlike the initial procedure he had to repair the sports hernia surgery back in December, this operation appears to be just cosmetic and shouldn't delay Stephen Weiss' timetable much further. Weiss is expected to be back to full health by the time training camp starts. He'll have a lot to prove after playing just 43 games the last two seasons, and not playing very effectively when healthy at that.

Red Wings' Weiss Likely Out For Rest Of Season

News: Stephen Weiss is not expected to play again this season after suffering several setbacks in his recovery from hernia surgery, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss has not played since Dec. 10, and it appears that will be the last game he appears in for the Red Wings this season. He will finish his first season with the Red Wings with two goals and two assists in 26 games.

Red Wings' Weiss Not Close To A Return

News: Stephen Weiss will receive a second opinion on his sports hernia and is not considered close to returning, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: At this stage, it's beginning to look increasingly doubtful that Stephen Weiss will take the ice this season, especially if the Red Wings miss out on the playoffs. It was already a miserable season for Weiss before undergoing hernia surgery, as he totaled just two points in 26 games.

Red Wings' Weiss Out At Least Another Week

News: Stephen Weiss (sports hernia) is expected to remain out for at least the next seven-to-10 days, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss is set to travel to Philadelphia to receive an update from the doctor who performed his sports hernia surgery back in December, with the hope that he'll be cleared to resume practicing soon. The ailing Wings can't get any of their injured centers back in the lineup soon enough, so a potential return from Weiss would certainly be a welcome development, even though he was struggling mightily on the offensive end before the surgery.

Another Setback For Red Wings' Weiss

News: Stephen Weiss (sports hernia) has hit a setback in his recovery and is due to receive further tests, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss has repeatedly been pushing back a conditioning assignment with limited improvement occurring over the last few weeks, and now it looks like that wait could be even longer. We won't know the extent of the setback until he's reexamined by team doctors, but a return from injured reserve no longer seems forthcoming.

Red Wings' Weiss Nearing Return

News: Stephen Weiss (hernia) may be cleared by Monday but still needs to earn a spot in the Red Wings' lineup, MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss will either head to AHL Grand Rapids for a conditioning assignment or travel with the Red Wings to New Jersey for Tuesday's game. He hasn't played since Dec. 10 and was a huge disappointment before going down with the injury.

Wings' Weiss Not Ready

News: Stephen Weiss (sports hernia) won't play in the Red Wings' next two games, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss indicted that he needs more practice time with the Wings, with the team's March 4 tilt against New Jersey now representing a potential return scenario.

Red Wings' Weiss Opts Against Rehab Game

News: Stephen Weiss (sports hernia) has opted not to join AHL Grand Rapids for a rehab game Sunday, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Though Stephen Weiss has been skating for a few weeks, he doesn't yet feel comfortable upping the intensity of his activity without easing his way into full-contact work. He plans to get in a full practice with the Red Wings on Sunday and Monday and will see how he feels afterwards before the Red Wings decide what to do with him. He still hasn't been ruled out for a return from IR for the team's first game out of the break Wednesday against the Canadiens.

Red Wings' Weiss Heads To AHL For Rehab Game

News: Stephen Weiss (sports hernia) will play a game for AHL Grand Rapids over the weekend, Chuck Pleiness of the Macomb Daily reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss practiced twice with OHL Plymouth last week before coming down with an illness, limiting his rehab work. By getting through a full game with Grand Rapids on Sunday without incident, Weiss would have a good chance at being available for the Red Wings when they resume action Wednesday against Montreal.

Next Move Up In The Air For Red Wings' Weiss

News: Stephen Weiss (sports hernia) was able to skate twice with the OHL Plymouth Whalers over the break, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss mentioned that a bout with an illness limited his energy, but the fact that he was able to tough it out and get a few skates in is encouraging news. He doesn't know whether or not he'll join AHL Grand Rapids this weekend for rehab games, but either way, the forward anticipates he'll be ready to go for the Wings' first game after the break.

Red Wings' Weiss Takes Conditioning To OHL

News: Stephen Weiss (sports hernia) will skate with the OHL Plymouth Whalers during the Olympic break, Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss has been skating for about a week now and will now test out his injury with his old junior squad in Plymouth, nearly 15 years after he first suited up for the squad. The forward is expected to stay with Plymouth for about a week before taking part in one or two conditioning games with AHL Grand Rapids Feb. 21-23. If all goes well, he could be cleared to return to the Red Wings when they resume play after the break.

Conditioning Stint On Tap For Wings' Weiss

News: Stephen Weiss (sports hernia) is expected to go on a conditioning stint at AHL Grand Rapids during the break in the NHL schedule for the Winter Olympics, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss, who hasn't played since Dec. 10 after undergoing sports hernia surgery, will practice with the Red Wings leading up to the break before joining his old junior club to continue working out thereafter. He would then be sent out on a conditioning stint once NHL teams resume practicing Feb. 19, likely requiring two games in the minors to prepare for a return to the lineup. Prior to suffering the injury, Weiss had been an extreme disappointment for the Red Wings, supplying just four points over 24 games.

Red Wings' Weiss Now Skating With Team

News: Stephen Weiss (sports hernia) skated with the team at Thursday's practice, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss was able to skate on his own last week, so joining the team marks the next progression in his recovery. He's still not expected to return until after the Olympic break, but things appear to be moving along well for the forward.
