Florida Panthers center Stephen Weiss will become the franchise's all-time leader in games played on Thursday. Weiss will play in his 614th contest when the Panthers face the Minnesota Wild. He'll snap a tie with right wing Radek Dvorak for the honor. "It's a great accomplishment for anybody to put in a long tenure at any business," Florida coach Kevin Dineen said. "It shows a commitment both ways, from organization to player and player to organization, because that's our game now. It's a two-way street. "Stephen has made a great commitment to this organization and continues to strive to make it better every day." Weiss, 28, has collected 13 goals, 28 assists and 46 penalty minutes this season.
