From the Montreal Canadiens:
Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced today that the team has agreed to terms on a two-year contract extension with forward Dale Weise (2014-15 and 2015-16).
“The acquisition of Dale Weise contributed to the success of our team this season. A young veteran with a lot of character, Dale is an intense player with a strong work ethic. We’re very pleased to have him as part of our team moving forward,” said Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin.
In 61 games with the Canadiens and the Vancouver Canucks in 2013-14, Weise recorded 16 points (6 goals, 10 assists). One of his goals was tallied on the powerplay and he scored one winning goal. The 6’02’’ and 210 lbs winger registered 59 penalty minutes, 103 hits and a +3 differential, while averaging 8:25 of ice time per game. Weise added seven points (3 goals, 4 assists) in 16 playoffs games, leading the Canadiens with two winning goals (tied with Max Pacioretty and Rene Bourque).
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.
TVA Sports' Renaud Lavoie reports that it's a 2-year, $2 million deal.
Because the New York Rangers haven't played since last Thursday, the New York Daily News's Peter Botte reminds us that Rangers defenseman John Moore will sit out Game 1 of the Rangers-Los Angeles Kings series on Wednesday:
John Moore still must sit out Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, the back end of a two-game suspension for an illegal hit that concussed Montreal's Dale Weise in the previous round. But the dependable defenseman is relieved that his Rangers teammates have ensured he will have a chance to play again this season.
"It's tough to watch no matter what time of year, but the guys gave me a chance to keep playing now," Moore said after practice Sunday in Greenburgh. "Obviously, if I could take it all back I would, but the biggest thing now is I hope Dale is OK and I've just got to get ready and hope for opportunity to come back here."
Moore, who was replaced by Raphael Diaz in the lineup for the Eastern clincher, added that it doesn't "really matter what I think" about the penalty imposed by the NHL.
"I respect the league's decision. I know they're trying to protect the players, but it certainly wasn't my intent to injure Dale on that play and I just hope he's OK," Moore said.

Update: Lest I forget, LoHud.com's Rick Carpiniello reminds us that Gary Bettman will rule on Daniel Carcillo's suspension appeal today, too:
from Bruce Arthur of the Toronto Star,
After Dale Weise was hit in the head by New York Rangers defenceman John Moore he rolled right back up and he tried to turn and he nearly fell down. His eyes were glassy and his hair was wild, because his helmet had come off. P.K. Subban grabbed him to hold him up, like a trainer hugging his boxer after throwing in the towel to end a fight. Tomas Plekanec helped Weise onto the bench; a trainer held Weise by the elbow on the way to the dressing room. It was the third period.
And Weise came back. The Montreal Canadiens had a two-goal lead in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference final, and Weise played 1:44 the rest of the way, including most of the final minute. He was ruled out for Game 6 on Thursday morning. The Canadiens denied he had a concussion.
From Montreal head coach Michel Therrien’s press conference before Game 6 of the Eastern Conference final:
Q: Is there any regret about having Dale come back given that the symptoms, obviously, came on after the game?
Therrien: You’re presuming it’s a head injury.
Q: Am I not correct?
Therrien: You’re not correct.
From ESPN New York's Katie Strang:
New York Rangers defenseman John Moore will have a hearing Wednesday for his illegal hit to the head of Montreal Canadiens forward Dale Weise during the Rangers' 7-4 loss in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals at Bell Centre on Tuesday night.
The NHL's Department of Player Safety announced the hearing via their official twitter account after the game.
Moore was assessed a match penalty at 10:41 of the third period, when he drilled Weise.
Weise was disoriented after the play and had to be supported by P.K. Subban as he appeared to regain his balance.
Weise briefly went to the league-mandated "quiet room" designated to treat potential head injuries. He returned to the game later in the third period.
Strang continues, noting that Derek Dorsett engaged in some shenanigans of his own.
Here's the Moore-on-Weise hit...
The CBC's Elliotte Friedman just posted his "30 Thoughts" column, and after wondering how the Penguins will be able to keep all of their unrestricted free agents-to-be, even with the rising cap (they won't be able to do so--a trade will be necessary or people will walk), he offers more than a few intriguing observations. Among them:
1. Just for comparison: the 2012-13 cap was $70.2 million, similar to what we're expecting next season. Chicago won with its top-three salaried players (Patrick Kane, Patrick Sharp and Jonathan Toews) taking 26 per cent. Kane and Toews can be extended this summer, with the new deals beginning in 2015-16. That percentage is going to go up, but by how much? They took almost $5 million less than Crosby/Malkin per season on their second deals, critical to their second Stanley Cup (and maybe more). Western Conference opponents are expecting to deal with them for eight additional years. "I hope [their salary number] starts with a nine," one rival exec laughed.

Scott Oake of HNIC with a feature on Dale Weise of the Montreal Canadiens.
When hockey moves at the speed of Twitter, funny things happen--and not "funny ha." After the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Boston Bruins, I watched the handshake line on the CBC, and saw it jerk and pause (this video comes from Pro Hockey Talk's Ryan Dadoun):
Almost immediately, there were questions, because the line paused twice--when Milan Lucic passed Dale Weise and Alexei Emelin--and then, with the Bruins and Habs' media being the Bruins' and Habs' media...
You have probably seen the 'after' picture (below) of Dale Weise, who took Nazem Kadri's skate to his face last night.
Here is how it happened and scroll to the 1:45 mark for a slow-motion replay.
from Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province,
At the end of a bitter bad-blood battle, the Kings would claim a 1-0 victory, but this wasn’t about the points or the fact the Kings have four regular-season wins over the Canucks for the first time in 23 years. It was about making a point and maintaining a resilient collective mindset that Tortorella has been drilling into his troops.
“I thought we did a real good job as far as deciding that’s our ice also,” said Tortorella. “It’s been a minus in our game. We got squat for points but we crossed a couple of bridges in what needs to be done.”
... How Sestito wound up with two minutes for instigating, five minutes for fighting, 10 minutes for instigating and a game misconduct had the Canucks scratching their heads.

added 7:43pm, Watch below, the Kassian suspension explanation video first followed by the Weise video.
Weise received 5 for charging and a game misconduct.
from David Staples of the Cult of Hockey,
Asked about the hit by Vancouver forward Dale Weise on Edmonton d-man Alex Plante in Monday night’s game, Edmonton Oilers head coach Tom Renney suggested a suspension might be in order.
“Pretty tough hit. Maybe a little sabbatical,” Renney said.
“He came pretty hard. He had a pretty full head of steam up. And he was after one thing, and that was to hurt and hit the kid.”
note: video is game recap but I embedded the video so it will start right before the hit….
If you’re looking for an update on Aunt Bessie’s cow, or information on last summer’s harvest, look on.
If, however, you’re looking for news and information on the top minor league affiliates of the NHL’s Southeast Division clubs, you’re in the right place.
In years past, I would run News from Norfolk as a regular feature on Tampa Bay’s AHL affiliate and now, News from the Farm will feature the Charlotte Checkers, Chicago Wolves, Hershey Bears and Rochester Americans along with the Admirals, to follow the progress of the Southeast’s future stars at the AHL level (and, at least for now, Michael Nylander and Sheldon Souray too).
We’ll look at game results, standings, league and team-leading scorers and goaltenders, pick a player of the week, have a glance at the schedule ahead and keep you abreast of any other developments for these players and their clubs.
Thursday seemed as good a day as any for this weekly feature, so that’s where it will be slotted in to start (and this week, as the first installment, there’s plenty of AHL action to catch up on).
Without further delay, News from the Farm:
