Dale Weise skated on the top line with Max Pacioretty and Tomas Plekanec during Saturday's 6-4 win against the Islanders.
He scored his sixth goal of the year just 10 seconds into the second period. Weise has been shuffled between lines in 2014-15, so he probably won't remain on the top unit for very long. He is having a career year offensively with 16 points in 41 games. "I have so much more confidence," Weise said. "I feel like a different player this year. I felt like a different player when I got here last year." Jan 19 - 9:54 AM

Dale Weise scored his fifth goal of the season in Tuesday's loss to Tampa Bay.

He opened the scoring in the match with assists going to Tomas Plekanec and Sergei Gonchar. Weise was playing on the second line in the game because of an injury to P.A. Parenteau.
Jan 7 - 10:46 AM

Dale Weise has returned to what he is--a fourth line plugger.

For a while in November, Weise was playing on the Habs' top unit alongside David Desharnais and Max Pacioretty. During that span he registered seven points. However, he has returned to his post on the Habs' fourth line and has registered only one point in the month of December. Well at least Weise had a bit of a run. No need for him to be on anyone's fantasy roster at the moment, though.

Dale Weise netted his fourth goal of the season in Montreal's 4-1 win versus St. Louis on Thursday.

Weise will probably easily surpass the six goals and 16 points he had in 61 games between Vancouver and Montreal last season. His penalty minutes are way down (11), but he still plays a physical game. Weise has generated 29 hits in 18 contests this year.

Dale Weise scored on a penalty shot, added an assist and fought Gregory Campbell less than three minutes into Thursday's game, a 5-1 win over the rival Bruins.

Weise's Gordie Howe hat trick came at an ideal time for the Canadiens, who have now won four straight. Weise's first goal of the season raises his total to six points in 14 games so far this season.

Dale Weise is getting a chance to play on the Canadiens' top line.

He finished Thursday's Vancouver game on the wing alongside David Desharnais and Max Pacioretty and practised with the two on Saturday as well. Brendan Gallagher, who usually lines up on the top unit, was practising on a line with Alex Galchenyuk at center and Rene Bourque on the other wing. Lars Eller, who usually centers the third line, skated on the wing of the second unit featuring Tomas Plekanec and P.A. Parenteau. It will be interesting to see if these lines hold Sunday against the Flames.

Dale Weise's right foot was slashed by a skate in Thursday's overtime loss to Vancouver.

He left for repairs in the second period, but was able to return in the third. Weise was very lucky that he didn't get a tendon sliced.

Dale Weise was a healthy scratch Thursday against Boston.

That was a good way to negate any possible confrontation with Bruins winger Milan Lucic. However, Lucic wasn't looking to make good on his promise from the handshake line from the 2014 playoffs anyway in Thursday's game. Weise has been scratched in two of Montreal's five contests this season.

Dale Weise isn't expecting any fireworks when the Canadiens play against the Boston Bruins for the first time this season on Thursday night.

"The media kind of blows things up a bit, the games have a hard time living up to that," he said. "We're just focusing on trying to have a good game. Being the first home game, we're excited. Our crowd is going to be jumping. We'll be ready to go." The tension of their playoff series and the controversy that followed in the handshake line has cooled down significantly. Still, it probably won't be long before the two clubs renew hostilities.

Dale Weise was a healthy scratch in Thursday's game at Washington.

He suited up in Wednesday's win over Toronto, but Travis Moen took his spot on the fourth line against the Capitals. Neither player should be on your fantasy radar.

Dale Weise was supposed to suit up tonight against Colorado, but sat out instead with what's being reported as a "neck injury."

The always reliable Renaud Lavoie had no futher details, but also pointed out that it "doesn't look that bad but was not 100% to play tonight."

Dale Weise will probably be teamed with former Vancouver linemate Manny Malhotra this season in Montreal.

"He's a solid, hard-working player," Weise said. "I like playing with him because he tends to play more on the defensive side. That allows me to take a few more chances offensively because I know he's backing me up." Brandon Prust could end up as the third member of the line to give the Canadiens their checking line.

Dale Weise has inked a two-year, $2 million contract extension with the Montreal Canadiens.

Montreal shipped Raphael Diaz to Vancouver on Feb. 3 to acquire Weise. The latter ended up with 16 points and 59 penalty minutes in 61 contests between the Canadiens and Canucks in 2013-14.

Montreal GM Marc Bergevin confirmed that Dale Weise suffered a concussion in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final against New York.

He spent some time in the "quiet room" before he was cleared to return to the contest. However, he wasn't able to play in Game 6. Symptoms of a concussion don't always immediately appear, so that may have been the case here. Weise contributed three goals and four assists in 16 games during Montreal's playoff run. He will use the summer to recover.

Dale Weise won't play in Game 6 Thursday.

It's believed he suffered a concussion, but coach Michel Therrien denied that. He called it a "body injury" and wouldn't talk about the symptoms that Weise reportedly suffered from after Tuesday's win. The Canadiens also reported that he sustained a concussion to the Department of Player Safety prior to John Moore's suspension. Weise has been a good player for Montreal during the playoffs and even though he's a fourth liner he will be missed in the lineup.
