Dale Weise RW MON 3 Days

Weise was inserted into the active lineup for Tuesday night's game against Detroit, playing right wing on the third line in place of rookie Jiri Sekac.

Weise had three shots on goal and a team-high six hits in 13:14 of ice time. The third line were a combined minus-17 with one goal through the first six games, so head coach Michel Therrien thought a change was needed.

Montreal GM Marc Bergevin confirmed that Dale Weise suffered a concussion in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final against New York.

He spent some time in the "quiet room" before he was cleared to return to the contest. However, he wasn't able to play in Game 6. Symptoms of a concussion don't always immediately appear, so that may have been the case here. Weise contributed three goals and four assists in 16 games during Montreal's playoff run. He will use the summer to recover.

Dale Weise won't play in Game 6 Thursday.

It's believed he suffered a concussion, but coach Michel Therrien wouldn't discuss the ailment. He called it a "body injury" and wouldn't talk about the symptoms that Weise reportedly suffered from after Tuesday's win. Weise has been a good player for the Canadiens during the playoffs and even though he's a fourth liner he will be missed in the lineup.

Dale Weise reportedly sustained a concussion as a result of the hit he absorbed from John Moore on Tuesday.

If that's true, then the obvious question is why he was allowed back into the game after spending time in the "quiet room." Weise had three goals and seven points in 16 playoff games.

Dale Weise skated on the third line during Wednesday's practice.

He left the fourth line, where he has played for the majority of the 2014 playoffs, to skate alongside Lars Eller and Rene Bourque. However, his promotion came because Thomas Vanek was demoted to rotation duty on the fourth unit and it's unclear if that change will last going into Game 3. Weise has contributed three goals and two assists in 13 contests this postseason, while averaging just under 10 minutes of ice time per match.
