DETROIT >> Stephen Weiss’ planned time to practice with the Plymouth Whalers was cut short.
Weiss practiced twice with Plymouth before getting real sick.
“I was sick the whole week up until pretty much (Wednesday) when I first started feeling better,” Weiss said. “So it was a tough week trying to squeeze in all of the activities without having that going on. But it felt good to have the guys back and I went into practice mode.”
Weiss is still recovering from sport hernia surgery on Dec. 23. He expects to be cleared prior to Wednesday’s game in Montreal.
“I don’t know about specific games, I just know that we were shooting for after the break to be ready to be available to play,” Weiss said. “So that’s obviously going to be up to the coaches whether or not they put me in the lineup but that’s still the plan: to be ready and available for those first couple of games back.”
Weiss will play Sunday in Grand Rapids when the Griffins host the Milwaukee Admirals.
