It looks as if Detroit coach Mike Babcock will continue to play Stephen Weiss on the team's first power-play unit at the expense of Pavel Datsyuk.
It's not as a result of Datsyuk playing poorly. It's quite the opposite. Datsyuk is needed to create on the second unit. That said, it's a boost to Weiss' fantasy value and negatively impacts on Datsyuk's. When healthy, Weiss is a pretty good hockey and fantasy asset. Feb 14 - 10:41 AM

Detroit Red Wings center Stephen Weiss ruined a shutout bid by Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury in Pittsburgh Wednesday night.

The Pens were up 4-0 at 7:52 of the second period when Weiss tipped in a goal at 13:26 of the second. There was no scoring in the third period. The goal for Weiss was his seventh of the season. Assists went to Henrik Zetterberg (33rd) and Niklas Kronwall (25th).

Stephen Weiss is getting first power-play ice time.

The Wings seem to be going with the following power-play units: Weiss, Henrik Zetterberg, Gustav Nyquist, Justin Abdelkader and Niklas Kronwall on the first team with Pavel Datsyuk, Tomas Tater, Tomas Jurco, Darren Helm and Danny DeKeyser on the second unit. Obviously Weiss and Abdelkader are the winners here. Can't imagine this is entirely good for Datsyuk being separated from Zetterberg, though.

Stephen Weiss scored a goal and added two assists for the Red Wings in a 5-4 victory over Florida Tuesday night.

Weiss has very quietly been productive in limited action this season, having amassed 17 points in 25 contests. He's worth a look in very deep formats. Luke Glendening notched a pair of goals in the winning effort while Drew Miller and Henrik Zetterberg also found the back of the net.

Stephen Weiss has produced one goal and one assist in his past 13 games.

"It's not something I think about at all," Weiss said before Thursday's win over the St. Louis Blues. "I've been feeling really good and I'm just happy to be consistently in the lineup, it's a nice change. I'm not too worried about the offensive stuff. That will come. It always has. I'm more focused on helping the team win." He hasn't been registering many shots and his offense has dried up after he returned with a vengeance in late November.
Jan 16 - 10:35 AM

Stephen Weiss will play on Detroit's top line on Tuesday.

Weiss had been bumped down to the fourth line because he was struggling offensively. He'll play alongside Darren Helm and Pavel Datsyuk. Moving him to the top line has triggered a noteworthy remake of the Red Wings' scoring lines as Datsyuk had previously been playing with Henrik Zetterberg and Justin Abdelkader. Zetterberg and Abdelkader will stay together though and be joined by Gustav Nyquist. The big loser in all of this is Johan Franzen, who has lost his top-six spot to make room for Weiss.
Jan 6 - 5:24 PM

Stephen Weiss has been skating on Detroit's fourth line.

He has generated one goal and one assist his last eight games. "He's battling real hard," coach Mike Babcock said. "Now he has to take someone's job." Weiss has 12 points in 16 games this season.
Jan 6 - 9:25 AM

Stephen Weiss, who was hit in the head and missed the final minutes of Tuesday's game, will be in the Red Wing lineup Saturday against Ottawa.

He did not sustain a concussion. That is good news for the injury-prone Weiss and any poolies who have him on their team. Make sure he is active against the Senators.

Stephen Weiss logged just 8:55 of ice time in his return to the lineup from a shoulder injury on Tuesday night.

He appeared to receive an elbow to the head from Sabres defenseman Nikita Zadorov, which removed him from the game. However, Weiss insists that he's fine. "I didn't see him," he said. "I couldn't tell you what happened. I was a little woozy there but I feel fine. I had my bell rung a little bit but I went through the protocol." We'll keep him as active for now. The Wings play Saturday against Ottawa in their first game back from the Christmas break.

Stephen Weiss has confirmed that he will draw back into Detroit's lineup on Tuesday versus Buffalo.

Weiss has four goals and 10 points in 11 games this year, so he'll be a welcome addition to a Red Wings team that is struggling offensively. He has missed the last four games with a shoulder injury.

Stephen Weiss (shoulder) feels ready to return after he fully participated in Monday's practice.

He's hoping to be put in the lineup for Tuesday's game against Buffalo. "I'm real excited, obviously. I didn't want to miss that many games, but that's the way it goes with those types of injuries," said Weiss, who has sat out four contests. "It's been tough to watch. I'm looking forward to get into a game before the couple days off (for the holiday break)." The Red Wings have six goals in their past six games and Weiss' return should help. He has four goals and 10 points in 11 appearances this year.

Stephen Weiss (shoulder) won't play in Sunday's game against Colorado.

Some thought that Weiss would be ready for Sunday's game but it won't happen. He will miss a fourth consecutive game because of the injury. The 31-year-old has four goals and six assists in 11 games this season. He's proving that he can still be productive at the NHL level, but he just can't stay healthy.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 10:53:00 AM

There is a very good chance that Stephen Weiss will play Sunday against Colorado.

Weiss has progressed well in his recovery from a shoulder injury and looks ready to return. Get ready to activate him.
Sat, Dec 20, 2014 09:46:00 AM

Stephen Weiss (shoulder) could be available to return this weekend.

GM Ken Holland thinks that will be the case. Weiss can come off injured reserve on Saturday and play on Sunday if he's ready. He has missed the past two games with a shoulder injury.

Stephen Weiss (shoulder) didn't skate Monday.

He missed Saturday's game because of a shoulder injury and he's been placed on injured reserve, according to the Red Wings' website. Weiss has 10 points in 11 games this season.
