Weise was called up from AHL Laval on Monday, TSN reports.
Weise was sent down to the minors Feb. 17, and it didn't take long for him to receive a promotion. The 30-year-old has provided a physical presence for the Canadiens this campaign, racking up 11 points and 70 hits in 45 games. Though he was recalled, it's unclear whether he will suit up in Tuesday's game against Detroit.
The Canadiens shifted Weise to AHL Laval on Tuesday.
Weise has provided the Canadiens with some valuable physical play as a bottom-six forward recently, but the veteran winger will give up his spot on the roster for the return of Paul Byron (forearm) from a multi-week absence. Weise should remain among the first names considered for recall should injuries arise up front.
Weise had two shots, blocked a shot and picked up a minor penalty over 10:39 of ice time in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Predators.
Weise, who was recently acquired from the Flyers, was active in the first game since being recalled from AHL Laval. He's part of a reconstituted fourth line that coach Claude Julien hopes brings a bit of scoring depth to the club and prevents opponents from scoring. By that second standard, the fourth line was successful Thursday.
Weise skated on the fourth line at Tuesday's practice, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.
The Canadiens revamped their fourth line over the weekend, trading for Weise (from Philadelphia) and Nate Thompson (from Los Angeles). That duo replaced Kenny Agostino and Michael Chaput. The flurry of activity happened immediately following Saturday's loss to Toronto, in which Montreal's fourth line allowed the Leafs' first two goals. The original trio hadn't scored since since Dec. 29, a span of 18 games. The Habs hope Weise and Thompson can improve the fourth line.
Weise was recalled from AHL Laval on Monday.
It didn't take long for Montreal to summon Weise, who was with the team for the parts of three seasons before he was traded to Philadelphia back in 2016. Now back with the Habs, Weise will hope to carve out a permanent NHL role as a bottom-six forward. In 42 games this season with the Flyers, Weise had five goals and 11 points.
Weise remains in the minors with AHL Laval, despite having been acquired via trade by Montreal on Saturday, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.
Weise was playing with AHL Lehigh Valley when he was flipped to the Habs and has been assigned to the Rocket, rather than reporting to Montreal. The winger could still be promoted ahead of Thursday's clash with Nashville if Paul Byron (forearm) remains unavailable.
The Flyers dealt Weise and Christian Folin to the Canadiens for David Schlemko and Byron Froese on Saturday, Frank Seravalli of TSN.ca reports.
Weise's four-year, $9.4 million deal with the Flyers will expire after the 2019-20 season. He's a journeyman with 54 goals and 66 assists under his belt through 481 career games between five NHL clubs, including the Habs from 2013-16.
Weise was sent down to AHL Lehigh Valley on Sunday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
The 30-year-old will not be subject to waivers this time around and will instead report immediately to the Flyers' AHL affiliate. In 42 games with Philadelphia this season, Weise has scored five goals and recorded 11 points while averaging 12:08 of ice time per game.
Weise won't be headed down to AHL Lehigh Valley right away after clearing waivers Wednesday, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports.
Weise won't be suiting up versus the Bruins on Wednesday and will serve as a healthy scratch. While the club could opt to keep him on the 23-man long term, it will have to send the Winnipeg native to the minors within 30 days or he will need to be placed on waivers again.
The Flyers placed Weise on waivers Tuesday.
Weise has gone scoreless in his last nine appearances while averaging just 10:55 of ice time over that span, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. In the likely scenario that he goes unclaimed, the veteran forward will almost certainly be sent to Philadelphia's AHL affiliate.
Weise has only one point in the last five games, but he did score four goals in December.
The 30-year-old only had four goals in 46 games last season, so four goals in one month is a lot for him. He also only had one goal this season prior to December. If he remains in the lineup, Weise could score 10 goals for the first time in a season since 2015-16. But other than that and the occasional hit -- he has 59 hits in 36 games -- he isn't much help to owners.
Weise has scored three goals in eight games this month, giving him four in 29 contests this season.
While he's having a good goal-scoring December, Weise doesn't have any assists and hasn't managed to post a positive plus/minus. He also has just 13 shots in eight games this month, giving him an unsustainable 23.1 shooting percentage. Those facts should keep Weise on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Weise scored for the second time in three games during a 6-2 victory against the Sabres on Saturday.
The veteran right winger only has three goals this season, but two of them have come this week. Still, considering he only had four goals last season and eight in 2016-17, Weise is hardly fantasy relevant. About the only category he's consistently contributing to is hits. He has 50 of those in 24 games this season.
Weise tied a season high with four shots on goal in the 4-0 victory against the Rangers on Friday.
The veteran forward doesn't have a point in his last six games, but at least he was getting shots to the net Friday. He has 12 shots in the last eight contests. Surely, that will help his goal-scoring production at some point. He only has one goal in 19 games this season, so at the moment, he's not of much use in fantasy realms.
Weise finally lit the lamp and added an assist in a 5-4 win over Arizona on Thursday.
Weise, who potted his first goal of 2018-19, now has four points in as many games. However, history says the hot streak won't last for long, so the best play is to ride him in daily leagues as long as you can to see if the outburst is for real.
Weise is still looking for his first goal of the season despite having two assists in the last three games.
During that stretch, he also has seven shots, so maybe that first goal is just around the corner. Still, Weise is only worth stashing in deep leagues, where hits are a category. He's averaging more than two hits per game, but other than that, Weise doesn't produce much. He has four assists, 17 shots, a plus-1 rating and 4 PIM in 12 games this season.
Weise didn't produce much in October, as he posted just two assists and 10 shots in nine games.
Weise's two assists came in the season opener, so he's gone eight straight contests with no points. The only category Weise is contributing to is hits. He's averaging 2.1 hits per game, but he must break out of his scoring slump to be fantasy relevant.
Weise has gone four games without registering a point, which gives him two points in five contests this season.
The veteran wing played well in his first opportunity this season on Oct. 10, recording two assists against the Senators. Since then, though, he's gone quiet and skated just 8:46 against the Devils on Saturday. Weise can remain safely on the waiver wire in nearly all formats.
Although the Flyers waived him Oct. 1, Weise is still with the big club, and will enter the lineup for Wednesday's matchup with Ottawa, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Weise, who totaled four goals and eight points in 46 contests last campaign, will occupy a bottom-six role against the Senators, skating with Jori Lehtera and Michael Raffl on Philadelphia's fourth line.
Weise was placed on waivers by the Flyers on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Weise saw action in just 46 games last season and averaged a paltry 10:34 when he was on the ice. If the winger can earn a call-up and stick around with the club, he provides decent depth scoring; however, his inability to secure a regular spot on the 23-man roster makes him a low-end fantasy option.
