Renaud Lavoie on Twitter
ImpactHe 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.

ImpactIt's believed he suffered a concussion, but coach Michel Therrien wouldn't discuss the ailment.

NewsDale Weise skated on the third line during Wednesday's practice.
ImpactHe left the fourth line, where he has played for the majority of the 2014 playoffs, to skate alongside Lars Eller and Rene Bourque.

Weise has contributed three goals and two assists in 13 contests this postseason, while averaging just under 10 minutes of ice time per match.

ImpactWeise has recorded three goals, 12 points and 42 penalty minutes in 44 games this season. He's a hard-nosed player who likes to initiate contact, but he shouldn't be on your fantasy radar unless you need penalty minutes.
Dale Weise thinks Hanzal in trouble Sunday | 01/26/2014 10:13 AM
NewsDale Weise thinks that Phoenix's Martin Hanzal has a lot of explaining to do on the ice after he injured three of his Vancouver teammates nine days ago.
ImpactThe Coyotes and Canucks meet tonight and there should be some rough stuff headed Hanzal's way after the center injured Henrik Sedin, David Booth and Mike Santorelli. "We'll see what happens tomorrow but I think he's going to have to answer the bell," Weise said on Saturday. "Obviously he took a pretty good stab at Hankie, a pretty good stab at Boothie and then Santorelli off the draw. It was tough for us (to immediately react). We saw what he was doing but it's a tight game and you can't really go out and get a penalty trying to jump a guy, or trying to engage a guy, and then they score and make it 2-0. So you have to be smart about the way you do it." It should be interesting.

Weise would wear a visor if not for his role | 06/13/2013 2:47 PM
NewsDale Weise said he would wear a visor if he didn't have a fourth-line role, which requires him to fight sometimes.
Impact"If I was playing in a bigger role and playing more minutes, I'd put one on for sure," he said. "In that fourth line role, you're getting targeted by other guys. If you're not playing on the fourth line, then you're not going to have as many opportunities to fight." Weise doesn't want to take his helmet off to fight, which several players who wear visors do because that can be even more dangerous. He thinks that fighting will remain in the game, but it will probably decrease with the new visor rule.
