The Florida Panthers say forward Stephen Weiss will miss the rest of the season because of a wrist injury, the latest blow for the reigning Southeast Division champions.
Panthers general manager Dale Tallon made the announcement on Tuesday, with Weiss being among more than a half-dozen key Florida players who are dealing with injuries. Also included on that list is goaltender Jose Theodore, who will miss four to six weeks with a leg injury.
Tallon says Weiss will have surgery next week. Weiss will be a free agent after the season, meaning his 11-year run with Florida could be over. Weiss had only one goal and three assists in 17 games this season.
The Panthers entered play Tuesday with the second-fewest points in the NHL standings.
