Weegar scored a career-high four points (one goal, three assists) in a 4-3 overtime victory over Carolina on Saturday. Weegar tied a team record for most points in a game by a defenseman. He has 29 points, including four goals, in 47 games, but had just one assist in the six games prior to this outburst. That means that many fantasy managers likely chose someone else to activate Saturday. Weegar gets next to no power-play opportunities, so his 29 points are hard-fought. Not bad for a seventh-round pick (2013).
Weegar (upper body) will be in the lineup for Thursday's game against Carolina, George Richards of Florida Hockey Now reports. Weegar missed the past two games with the upper-body issue, but he'll make his return to the lineup. The 27-year-old will handle a top-pairing role for Thursday's game, as he's racked up 25 points and a plus-17 rating across 45 games this campaign.
