Red Wings Buy Out Weiss

News: The Red Wings bought out the remaining three years on Stephen Weiss' contract Tuesday, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: The Red Wings will owe $16 million to Stephen Weiss, who was appeared in just 78 games during his two seasons with the team as a result of injury. He showed that he still had some offensive ability in his repertoire in the instances he was healthy last season (nine goals, 25 points in 52 games), but at 32 years old, it's doubtful that he'll reemerge as a 50-point scorer in the remaining years of his career. Weiss will become an unrestricted free agent and isn't likely to command a hefty salary figure on the open market.

Wings' Weiss Expected To Be Scratched Tuesday

News: Stephen Weiss is likely to be replaced in the lineup by Justin Abdelkader for Tuesday's Game 3, Ansar Khan of MLive reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss struggled much of the second half of the year, and has been in and out of the lineup during that span. He was skating in a red jersey with the top six forwards Monday, so it looks like if Justin Abdelkader plays on Tuesday, Weiss will be the odd man out.

Weiss Carries Detroit Offense In Loss

News: Stephen Weiss assisted on the first Detroit goal and potted the second on a power play Thursday in a 3-2 loss to the Bruins.
Analysis: Things were looking good after his early third-period tally put Detroit up 2-0, but the Wings collapsed thereafter. Stephen Weiss' hot start to the year in November and December has been long forgotten at this point -- with two points in the first game of April, he's matched his totals from February and March.

Red Wings' Weiss Draws Back In

News: Stephen Weiss will reenter the lineup Thursday against the Sharks, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss had been a healthy scratch in the past five games for the Red Wings, as the recently acquired Erik Cole has effectively replaced him in the lineup. However, with Cole sustaining an upper-body injury Tuesday night and ruled out Thursday, Weiss will get a chance to skate again. Weiss is expected to slot in on the club's fourth line next to Joakim Andersson and Teemu Pulkkinen.

Detroit's Weiss A Healthy Scratch

News: Stephen Weiss did not play in Monday's 5-2 win against Edmonton, being the victim of a healthy scratch.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss only has one point in his last 11 games and is a minus-4 in that span. His playing time had dropped to less than 10 minutes a few times in that span, and he doesn't appear to figure large in the Detroit attack as of now. His replacement, Tomas Jurco, is also struggling, however, so he may battle Jurco for playing time the rest of the season.

Wings' Weiss Nets Goal In Loss

News: Stephen Weiss lit the lamp Wednesday in a 4-1 losing effort against Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Although he's been streaky, Stephen Weiss is having a pretty good season. Since finally getting healthy, he has 18 points (seven goals) in 30 games. While he's been feast or famine over the last month and a half, he's still a decent fantasy player if you're in a pinch.

Big Game For Wings' Weiss

News: Stephen Weiss ripped off a goal, two assists and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's win over his old Panthers mates.
Analysis: He did it in just 12:16 of ice time, too -- very impressive efficiency. Stephen Weiss had been buried in a deep slump before breaking out over these last few games -- he's got five points in the last four after netting just two in the prior 13.

Wings' Weiss Snaps Drought

News: Stephen Weiss notched an assist in Saturday's 5-2 win over Nashville, snapping a seven-game scoreless streak.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss got off to a hot start in his initial return from injury in November, but has failed to recapture that since separating his shoulder in mid-December. If he can get back on track, he has some fantasy value, but that has not happened in January yet.

Wings' Weiss Set To Play Saturday

News: Stephen Weiss (head) is set to return to action Saturday versus the Senators, Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss was forced to leave the Red Wings' final game before the holiday break Tuesday after taking an elbow to the head, but his availability for Saturday doesn't seem to be in jeopardy after he was cleared of any concussion symptoms. It amounts to a stroke of good fortune for Weiss, who could benefit from some positive news on the health front more than just about anyone in the league. He's missed 114 of a possible 165 regular-season games (69 percent) due to injuries over the last three seasons.

Red Wings' Weiss Passes Concussion Tests

News: Stephen Weiss took an elbow to the head from the Sabres' Nikita Zadorov during Tuesday's game, but managed to pass all concussion tests afterwards, Brendan Savage of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss said after the game that he should be available moving forward, a fortunate development for a player who has been suffered rotten luck on the health front the last two seasons. Assuming no concussion symptoms emerge within the next few days, the Christmas break will allow Weiss to rest up before the Red Wings play the Senators on Saturday. Though he played only 8:55 in Tuesday's game, he still came away with his fifth goal of the season on a first-period power play.

Red Wings Activate Weiss

News: Stephen Weiss (shoulder) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday.
Analysis: The forward is set to return to the lineup after a shoulder issue kept him out of action just under two weeks. He could see shorter shifts in his return from the four-game absence, but expect coach Mike Babcock to eventually carve out a larger role for the Stephen Weiss now that he's healthy. He has 10 points in 11 games played this season, leading the Red Wings to a 8-1-2 record during those contests.

Wings' Weiss To Play Tuesday

News: Stephen Weiss will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Sabres, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss' injury sent him to injured reserve as part of a move that allowed the team to recall Mike Sislo from AHL Albany. He hasn't played since Dec. 13, but appears ready to return to the ice Tuesday. The team will likely announce his activation at some point Tuesday, which should include a corresponding move to make room for his return.

Wings' Weiss (Shoulder) Expected To Return Tuesday

News: Stephen Weiss is expected to return Tuesday against the Sabres, MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss has been out since Dec. 12 with the shoulder injury, but was expected to return before the three-day Christmans break. That appears to indeed be the case, as he should return Tuesday. The 31-year-old forward has four goals and six assists in 11 games with the Red Wings this season.

Wings' Weiss Won't Return Sunday

News: Stephen Weiss (shoulder) will not be in the lineup Sunday, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss is close to his return after being shelved with a separated shoulder, but apparently needs a couple more days. He may be able to return for Tuesday's game against Buffalo.

Red Wings' Weiss Hoping To Play Sunday

News: Stephen Weiss (shoulder) said Thursday that he hopes to return to the Detroit lineup when eligible Sunday versus the Avalanche, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss rotated in during line rushes at Thursday's practice, but he said that he's taking a "wait-and-see approach" to his status for Sunday based on how he progresses over the next few days. The Red Wings should have a better idea about his availability for the Avalanche game following Saturday's practice.

Red Wings' Weiss Expected Back Before Christmas

News: Stephen Weiss (shoulder) is expected to return to the Red Wings lineup before Christmas, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: The Red Wings probably won't have a firmer target date for Stephen Weiss' return until he starts practicing with the team, but fortunately, it seems that the team is ruling out an absence of more than a month for the forward. Weiss' two-year stint in Detroit has largely been a tumultuous one due to his repeated setbacks on the health front, but he has been outstanding in the 11 games he's suited up for this season, netting four goals and 10 points.

Red Wings Place Weiss On Injured Reserve

News: The Red Wings placed Stephen Weiss (shoulder) on injured reserve Tuesday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss was deactivated to open up a roster spot for Justin Abdelkader (upper body), who is expected to return Tuesday. He will be eligible to be activated Saturday, but it's not clear when he will be ready to take the ice next.

Detroit's Weiss' Injury Not Long-Term

News: Stephen Weiss (shoulder) will be out at least a few days but his injury isn't considered long-term, MLive.com reports.
Analysis: The injury appears much less severe than originally believed, as Stephen Weiss compared it to the slight shoulder separation that kept teammate Justin Abdelkader out for two weeks. Weiss doesn't expect to be out that long, and hopes to return after missing only a few games, starting with Saturday's match in Toronto.

Grim Prognosis On Shoulder For Wings' Weiss

News: Coach Mike Babcock didn't sound encouraged by the condition of Stephen Weiss' shoulder after Friday's shootout loss to the Panthers, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports. "He's out," Babcock said of the forward, who will be reevaluated Saturday in Toronto.
Analysis: General manager Ken Holland wouldn't entirely rule out the possibility of Stephen Weiss playing Saturday in Toronto after talking with the team doctor, but it seems more likely than not that he'll be forced out of the game, and quite likely, more to follow. The extent of the injury should be known by the end of the weekend. Weiss had previously been sidelined for much of the first month and a half of the season with a groin issue, but has shined since returning from the injury in November, registering four goals and six assists in nine games.

Wings' Weiss Suffers Shoulder Injury

News: Stephen Weiss injured his shoulder Friday and did not return, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: There were conflicting reports following the game regarding his status for Saturday's game, but it sounds like he will be close to a game-time decision. Brain Lashoff and Dan Cleary would need to step up if Stephen Weiss cannot play Saturday.

Wings' Weiss (Upper Body) Won't Return

News: Stephen Weiss suffered an upper-body injury in the second period of Friday's game against the Panthers and won't return, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: The origin of Stephen Weiss' injury is a bit unclear, but it could be a result of a play in which Weiss hit his head against the boards midway through the second period. Regardless, he will miss the remainder of Friday's contest, and the team will likely provide an update on his status before Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs.

Wings' Weiss To Play Saturday

News: Updating a previous report, Stephen Weiss missed Friday's practice due to personal reasons but will be in the lineup Saturday versus the Rangers, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: It was feared that Stephen Weiss might have suffered a setback with his groin injury Thursday night when he was absent from practice, but coach Mike Babcock indicated that it was nothing of the sort. Weiss will likely reclaim a spot on the Red Wings' third line and aim to continue his hot play.

Wings' Weiss May Be Batting Groin Issue Again

News: Stephen Weiss was held out of Friday's practice due to an expected aggravation of his groin, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss was reportedly a game-time decision Thursday night because of the groin issue, but ended up suiting up and providing a goal and two assists for the Wings. He's been scintillating since making his return to action Nov. 24, producing nine points in seven games for the season. However, the groin injury has been lurking over him all season, and it may be just a matter of time before another absence comes about. For now, he'll be considered questionable for Saturday's tilt with the Rangers.

Hot Streak Continues For Wings' Weiss

News: Stephen Weiss racked up a goal, two assists (one on the power play), a plus-2 and two penalty minutes Thursday in a win over the Stars.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss has made an incredible return from his groin injury, racking up nine points in six games. After totaling just four points each in injury-shortened 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons, he's suddenly back to producing in a manner reminiscent of his last few full seasons in Florida.

Wings' Weiss Picks Up Two Points In Win

News: Stephen Weiss picked up a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Flyers.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss was rather unproductive in his first season with the Red Wings, as injury troubles limited him to just two goals and two assists in 26 games in 2013-14. This season started out similarly for Weiss on the injury front, but he's shown a massive uptick in production when healthy, collecting four points in just two games since returning.
