27-Year-Old Right Wing – Montreal Canadiens
Dale Weise Contract Information:
Signed a two-year extension with the Canadiens in June of 2014.
Weise will skate on the fourth line when the Habs face the Sabres in Buffalo on Friday, Hockey Inside Out reports. "He's got to be more hungry," head coach Michel Therrien said about Weise. "He’s the type of player that when he's hungry he's fast on forecheck, he's winning battles, he's making good decisions with the puck. Last game, I didn't quite like his focus, so that's why we made the change."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Dale Weise.
Weise is a fourth-liner who made a big impact on the Canadiens after he was acquired from Vancouver. He scored three goals in 16 games with Montreal after needing 44 games with Vancouver to score the same amount. He then added three goals and seven points in 17 playoff games, including two game-winners. He's a high-character guy who can give the Canadiens a little touch on the fourth line and at 25, still has much in the tank.
Weise spent another season as a fourth-line grinder for the Canucks, appearing in 42 games in 2012-13 while seeing 9:33 minutes of ice time per night. He was re-signed this offseason to assume the same role this year.
Weise appeared in 68 games for the Canucks last season, finishing with eight points (4 G, 4 A) while averaging just over eight minutes of ice time per-game. The 24-year-old winger was re-signed this offseason and will return to Vancouver to play a similar fourth-line role with the team.
Weise spent 73 games with the Hartford Wolf Pack (AHL) last season. He has proven to be adept at scoring goals as well as dishing assists at the minor-league level. Last season his penalty minutes soared to 114 - from 64 the season before. With a little more seasoning in the minors, he could be ready for a part-time role with the parent club sooner than later.
