By The Numbers: Stephen Weiss

Panthers By The Numbers takes a closer look at some of the interesting stats that you may or may have not known about.

2011-12 SEASON FOR STEPHEN WEISS

2. If it seemed like Stephen Weiss clinched a game in the shootout this season, it’s probably because most of the time he did. The long time Panther led the way by scoring two game deciding shootout goals this season (team had six shootout wins total). Combine that with the previous four he has recorded throughout his career, it’s safe to say that Weiss doesn’t crack under pressure.

3. If you watched the Florida Panthers compete in their first playoff series since 2000, you also saw New Jersey Devils’ inability to stay out of the penalty box - something that nearly cost them the series. The Panthers were blistering hot on the power play scoring at an alarming rate, many of which can be traced back to Weiss, who scored three power play goals in just seven games. He netted two of them in the second game alone as the Panthers earned their first playoff victory since 1997. His three goals tied him for second in most power play goals in the league, only behind Ilya Kovalchuk of the New Jersey Devils who has scored four with nine more games played.

4. On October 17th, in a game versus state rivals the Tampa Bay Lightning, Weiss became one of only three players this season to have a four-point game. His two goals and two assists tied his single-game career high. Teammates Brian Campbell and Kris Versteeg also accomplished the four-point feat this season.

5. One of the reasons why Weiss is a coach’s dream and fan favorite is his strong defensive play. Weiss finished the season with an impressive plus-five, good enough for second on the team only behind Jason Garrison with a plus-six. Teammate Marcel Goc also had a plus-five.

6. Weiss surpassed his previous career recorded of four game winners, which he recorded in back to back seasons (2007-2008 and 2008-2009 season). Not only was he the most clutch Panther, but he was also one of the most clutch players in the league with six game winning goals, tying him for 18th in the league. The league leader Steven Stamkos, of the Tampa Bay Lightning, recorded twelve game winners this season. With his six game winning goals, Weiss is now second in franchise history (23) and only thirteen behind Olli Jokinen, the present leader, who scored thirty-six game winners during his tenure with the Panthers.

10. Weiss liked to pick up his points in bunches, tallying two or more points ten times this season, only behind linemates Tomas Fleischmann and Versteeg. He led the way, however, in three-point games with six this season. Florida finished 8-1-1 when Weiss experienced a multi-point game.

37.5. On a team that struggled heavily in the shootout, Weiss arose as a savior. Scoring three goals on eight attempts, his 37.5 percentage was third on the team and second amongst forwards, only behind shootout specialist Wojtek Wolski who finished with a 42.9 percentage. Blueliner Dmitry Kulikov led the way for all Panthers scoring on two of his four attempts.

57. The 10th year vet continued to produce offensively while playing the first line minutes. His 57 points were the third most in his career and allowed him to finish second on the team behind Fleischmann.

80. Weiss had a reasonably healthy season in terms of games played. Competing in all but two of those contests, the center tied a career-high in games played. He also played in 80 games during the 2009-10 season. Weiss, in fact, has played in 70 or more games during a season seven times over his career.

232. Although it’s hard to remember all of Weiss’s thirty-seven assists this year, his twenty-third assist of the season on Shawn Matthias’s game tying goal January 16th against the Boston Bruins, is one for the record books. His 232nd career assist, all in a Panthers uniform, allowed him to steal the spot light for most career assists in franchise history. Weiss helped set up fourteen more goals before the season’s end, bringing the record up to 246 assists.

637. On February 23rd in a game against the Minnesota Wild, Weiss stole another Panthers franchise record when he skated in his 614th game, surpassing the previous leader, Radek Dvorak, who skated in 613 games with the Panthers. Weiss now holds sole possession of the record with 637 games played and will hopefully add to that in the future.
