Weiss not as excited this time around to face former team

DETROIT >> Stephen Weiss was excited to face his former team last season.

This time around it’s just another game.

Weiss and the Wings host the Florida Panthers, a team he had spent his entire career with until signing a deal with Detroit two offseasons ago.

“I don’t have quite the same feeling this year for sure,” Weiss said. “There’s only a few left on the team that I was on last. Some of the staff is still there, but it’s pretty much a new team again.”

The Panthers took Weiss fourth overall in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.

“Last year I was really excited to play against them, this year it’s just another game,” Weiss said.

Weiss played 654 career games with Florida and made the playoffs once.
