Weiss was limited to 26 games for the Red Wings in 2013-14 and did not play after Dec. 10 following hernia surgery. The 31-year-old forward recorded four points (2-2-4) and 12 penalty minutes in his first season with Detroit. A veteran of 681 NHL games since 2001-02...

Stephen Weiss sent to Grand Rapids for a conditioning assignment
In one game for the Red Wings so far this season, Stephen Weiss has not impressed. He’s been a healthy scratch almost since the pre-season, and didn’t impress very much in his exhibition games either. After telling everyone coming into the season that he was at 100% again after his slew of injuries...

The Detroit Red Wings have received encouraging reports on the progress of Stephen Weiss.
"(Trainer) Piet Van Zant texted him two days ago," general manager Ken Holland said. "He said he's feeling great, he's training hard; he's played some shinny (pick-up hockey). So far all reports are he's healed and ready to roll in September."
