Make or Break Year for Weise

weiseThe Rangers continue their “20 Prospects in 20 Days” series with Dale Weise who has scored 57 goals and 111 points over the past three AHL seasons…

“I have been in the American League for three years, and I think in my last two years I’ve been a key guy down there,” he said of his time with the Connecticut Whale, who changed their name from the Hartford Wolf Pack last season. “I have been one of our top scorers each year and one of our top power-play guys. For me, I think this is make or break. I’m going into training camp, and I need to make the team.”

Here’s Assistant General Manager Jeff Gorton on Weise…

“He’s at a point in his career where he’s had a couple of years down there, and he probably feels like he’s ready for the next step. It will be interesting to see where he’s at by training camp,” said Gorton. “He’s a pretty well-rounded guy, and when he’s on his game in Hartford, he’s pretty hard to stop. Because he has that size and that strength and he’s got the determination to go to the net, and he goes to those areas. I think he’s got a bright future in the NHL.”

…i was hoping that Weise would get a real chance to make the roster this training camp, but with the way the off-season has gone I can’t see a scenario where Weise has an actual chance of being in the Rangers line-up on Opening Night in Stockholm.

…not sure what I like more about Weise, the fact that he fought Carcillo last year or had the Gatorade fail.
