Weiss assisted on the first Detroit goal and potted the second on a power play Thursday in a 3-2 loss to the Bruins.

Things were looking good after his early-third-period tally put Detroit up 2-0, but the Wings collapsed thereafter. Weiss's hot start to the year in November and December has been long forgotten at this point -- with two points in the first game of April, he's matched his totals from February and March.

Weiss will reenter the lineup Thursday against the Sharks, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.

Weiss had been a healthy scratch in the past five games for the Red Wings, as the recently acquired Erik Cole has effectively replaced him in the lineup. However, with Cole sustaining an upper-body injury Tuesday night and ruled out Thursday, Weiss will get a chance to skate again. Weiss is expected to slot in on the club's fourth line next to Joakim Andersson and Teemu Pulkkinen.

Weiss did not play in Monday's 5-2 win against Edmonton, being the victim of a healthy scratch.

Weiss only has one point in his last 11 games and is a minus-4 in that span. His playing time had dropped to less than 10 minutes a few times in that span, and he doesn't appear to figure large in the Detroit attack as of now. His replacement, Tomas Jurco, is also struggling, however, so he may battle Jurco for playing time the rest of the season.

Weiss lit the lamp Wednesday in a 4-1 losing effort against Pittsburgh.Although he's been streaky, Weiss is having a pretty good season. Since finally getting healthy, he has 18 points (seven goals) in 30 games. While he's been feast or famine over the last month and a half, he's still a decent fantasy player if you're in a pinch.

Weiss ripped off a goal, two assists and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's win over his old Panthers mates.

He did it in just 12:16 of ice time, too -- very impressive efficiency. Weiss had been buried in a deep slump before breaking out over these last few games -- he's got five points in the last four after netting just two in the prior 13.

Weiss notched an assist in Saturday's 5-2 win over Nashville, snapping a seven-game scoreless streak.

Weiss got off to a hot start in his initial return from injury in November, but has failed to recapture that since separating his shoulder in mid-December. If he can get back on track, he has some fantasy value, but that has not happened in January yet.

Weiss (head) is set to return to action Saturday versus the Senators, Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News reports.

Weiss was forced to leave the Red Wings' final game before the holiday break Tuesday after taking an elbow to the head, but his availability for Saturday doesn't seem to be in jeopardy after he was cleared of any concussion symptoms. It amounts to a stroke of good fortune for Weiss, who could benefit from some positive news on the health front more than just about anyone in the league. He's missed 114 of a possible 165 regular-season games (69 percent) due to injuries over the last three seasons.

Weiss took a hard hit during Tuesday's game against the Sabres but managed to pass all concussion tests afterwards, Brendan Savage of MLive Media Group reports.

Weiss said after the game that he should be available moving forward. Fortunately for him the Christmas break will allow Weiss to rest up before the Red Wings play the Senators on Saturday.

Weiss (shoulder) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday.

The forward is set to return to the lineup Thursday after a shoulder issue kept him out of action just under two weeks. He could see shorter shifts in his return from the four-game absence, but expect coach Mike Babcock to eventually carve out a larger role for the Weiss now that he's healthy. He has 10 points in 11 games played this season, leading the Red Wings to a 8-1-2 record during those contests.

Weiss will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Sabres, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

Weiss' injury sent him to injured reserve as part of a move that allowed the team to recall Mike Sislo from AHL Albany. He hasn't played since Dec. 13, but appears ready to return to the ice Tuesday. The team will likely announce his activation at some point Tuesday, which should include a corresponding move to make room for his return.
