Weise, 25, has produced 30 points (13 goals, 17 assists) in 179 regular season contests since his NHL debut with the New York Rangers in 2010-11. He has seven points (3 goals, 4 assists) in 22 playoff games.

A native of Winnipeg, Weise was drafted by the Rangers in the fourth round, 111th overall at the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He was acquired from the Canucks on February 3, 2014, in return for defenseman Raphael Diaz.
