TSN’s Bob McKenzie reports that the Philadelphia Flyers have signed Dale Weise to a four-year, $9.4MM deal. The Broad Street Bullies bring in one of the league’s best grinders who is coming off his best offensive season.
Weise, 27, was traded last season from Montreal to Chicago, where he found himself struggle on the talented Blackhawks squad and only see about nine minutes of ice time a night. Scoring 14 goals and 27 points in Montreal, the winger added only a single regular season point in 15 games for the Hawks.
He’ll head to a Flyers team looking for some grit in their bottom six, as the team already has a ton of offensive skill up front. With Wiese, they’ll get a solid defensive player who will chip in offensively every now and again and can move up to the second line in a pinch.
