#WeissFacts: Honoring Weiss On Twitter
Stephen Weiss was drafted with the Panthers 1st pick (4th overall) in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.
In honor of Stephen Weiss playing in his 614th game as a Panther, surpassing Radek Dvorak and setting a new franchise record for most games played in a Florida uniform, @FlaPanthers asked the fans on twitter for their best #WeissFacts (think Chuck Norris with a Panthers twist). Our favorite #9 entries were awarded a pair of tickets to tonight's game to watch Weiss break the record. We were so overwhelmed by your wit, we decided to showcase several more of our favorite #WeissFacts.
