Stephen Weiss has been bought out of the final three years of his contract by the Detroit Red Wings.
After spending his first 11 seasons with the Florida Panthers, Weiss signed a five-year, $24.5M with Detroit starting in the 2013-14 season. However he only scored 29 points in 78 games over his first two seasons in Detroit due to a myriad of injuries. The Red Wings will carry a $1,066,666 cap hit the next two seasons, a $2,566,666 cap hit in 2017-18, and a $1,666,666 cap hit the final three seasons of the buyout. Tue, Jun 30, 2015 05:33:00 PM
