Veteran St. Louis Blues center Doug Weight will make his first preseason appearance Wednesday against the Chicago Blackhawks. "I've been feeling good," said Weight, who gradually has increased his contact levels during practice. "No one around here's been trying to hit me either, so I've got to get in there and play." "He wants to get his timing down and things like that, which will be exciting for us," Blues coach Mike Kitchen said. "We'll watch his ice time of course early, let him get a feel for the game. But I think he has to get out there and get confidence, too, take a check and that kind of thing."more
