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.

Stephen Weiss, C, DET Hot Streak Continues For Wings' Weiss

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.

Wings' Weiss Finds Twine Twice In Return

News: Stephen Weiss scored not one, but two goals in his long-awaited NHL return Monday. His markers paced the Wings to a 4-3 win over the Senators.
Analysis: The veteran hadn't scored in over a year due to various injury troubles and slumping, so it was nice to see Stephen Weiss get back into the thick of things. If he can at least partially regain the form that allowed him to rack up 61 points with the Panthers in 2008-09, he would be a wonderful depth piece for Detroit's offense. It's probably a long shot, but he's only 31, so he's worth keeping tabs on.

Wings' Weiss To Be In Lineup Monday

News: Stephen Weiss will return to the lineup Monday against Ottawa, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss has only played one game for the Wings this season due to various injuries, but his groin appears to have healed up. He should see time on the third line with Darren Helm and Tomas Jurco, and will try to make an impact after a disappointing first couple years.

Wings' Weiss Scores Twice In AHL

News: Stephen Weiss scored a pair of goals in two games with AHL Grand Rapids over the weekend.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss looked as healthy as he's been since joining Detroit, and the Red Wings hopes he can stay that way as they call him up Sunday. It remains to be seen whether he'll be in the lineup Monday against Ottawa.

Wings' Weiss Expected Back Sunday

News: Stephen Weiss (groin) is expected to return from his conditioning assignment at AHL Grand Rapids on Sunday, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss suited up for Grand Rapids on Friday night and will do so again Saturday before the Red Wings recall him. Once he's back with the team, Weiss figures to be a healthy scratch most nights, but with an upcoming schedule that's chock-full of short breaks in between games, he figures to make an appearance in the near future.

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.
