SUNRISE, Fla. Stephen Weiss will miss the remainder of the season with a wrist injury, Florida Panthers GM Dale Tallon announced Tuesday. Weiss, who is due to become an unrestricted free agent this July, will require surgery and be out for an estimated 10-12 weeks. "We knew from the beginning of the year that he always had that problem," teammate Tomas Kopecky said. "To see him the past couple weeks, it was a pure struggle, ad pure battle, not only games but in practices." Florida's longest-tenured player, Weiss had one goal, three assists and a minus-13 rating in 17 games.
