via Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Update on Detroit Red Wings center Stephen Weiss:

General manager Ken Holland said Weiss has opted to undergo surgery for a sports hernia. The date for the procedure hasn't been set, but Holland said Weiss should return just after the Olympic break (Feb. 9-25).

I dropped Weiss from one of my fantasy teams (it was a deep fantasy draft) a few days ago expecting something like this.

He should probably take as long as he needs.

Surgery For Weiss, Out Until End Of February

Without wishing any ill will on Weiss, him being out until next season wouldn’t be a bad thing at all for the Wings. He’s been an unmitigated disaster as a second-line center. Maybe sitting out the year and watching how the Wings play (or how they should play) will help acclimate him for his return in the 2014-2015 season.
