Weiss to Griffins on conditioning loan

The Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday assigned center Stephen Weiss to the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins for conditioning.

Florida’s first-round choice (fourth overall) in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, Weiss appeared in 26 games with the Red Wings during the 2013-14 season and notched four points (two goals, two assists) and 12 penalty minutes. The 13-year pro did not play after Dec. 10 following hernia surgery and has appeared in only one game in with the Wings this season.

Since 2001-02, the 31-year-old Weiss has amassed 398 points (147 goals, 251 assists) in 681 NHL games between the Panthers and Red Wings. A native of Toronto, Ont., Weiss is Florida’s all-time leader in games played (654) and assists (249).

Weiss’ last AHL stint was during the 2004-05 season, when he split his campaign between the San Antonio Rampage and the Chicago Wolves. In 90 career AHL games, Weiss has recorded 28 goals and 35 assists for 63 points. He reached the Calder Cup Finals with Chicago in 2005, tallying nine points in 18 postseason games.
