During the offseason, the New York Rangers picked Weise in the fourth round, 111th overall, at the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. On September 19, 2008, while attending his first NHL training camp, he signed an entry-level deal with the organization. He made his professional debut on October 4, 2008, in a game against the Montreal Canadiens and scored his first career goal two days later against Jason LaBarbera of the Atlanta Thrashers.
Weise played in 44 games for the Rangers during the 2008-09 season, scoring 9 goals and adding 14 assists for 23 points. He ranked second on the team with 80 penalty minutes and was plus-7. The following season, Weise played in only six games for the Blueshirts before being traded to the Vancouver Canucks for Derek Morris on November 21, 2009. He finished out the year with the Canucks after signing as a free agent earlier in the summer. Weise played in 51 games in 2010-11, scoring 6 goals and adding 10 assists for 16 points. He led all Canucks defensemen with 103 penalty minutes and was plus-12.
Weise signed a three-year contract extension worth $9 million on July 1, 2011. He missed nearly half of the 2012-13 season due to injury but still managed to score 7 goals and add 12 assists for 19 points in 62 games. He ranked third on the team with 129 penalty minutes and was plus-14.
Weise signed a four-year, $9.4 million contract with the Philadelphia Flyers on July 1, 2016. In 64 appearances during his debut season with the club, he scored eight goals and added 15 points. Weise had surgery for bone spurs in his elbow on April 13, 2017. He is expected to be ready for the start of the 2018-19 season.
Dale Patrick Weise was born on January 4, 1984 in Calgary, Alberta. He played junior hockey for the Portland Winter Hawks of the Western Hockey League (WHL). Weise was drafted by the Atlanta Thrashers in the second round (42nd overall) of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. After playing two seasons with the Thrashers, he moved to the Flyers via trade on June 30, 2005.
Weise made his NHL debut on October 11, 2005 against the New York Rangers. He replaced an injured Sean O'Donnell as part of a line centered by Jeff Carter at the 12:49 mark of the first period. The Flyers went on to lose 5-3 at home. That night, Weise earned himself one of hockey's greatest moments when he replaced an injured Claude Lemieux with less than 10 minutes left in the third period of Game 7 of the 2007 Stanley Cup Finals. The Montreal Canadiens were up 3-1 at that point but the Penguins won five straight games to win the series 4-3.
Moore was chosen by the New York Rangers in the third round (No. 95) at the 2000 NHL Draft. After four seasons at Harvard, he joined the Rangers late in the 2003-04 season, and he made his NHL debut in 2005-06, ending with 18 points (nine goals, nine assists) in 82 games. He signed a two-year contract extension on July 1, 2006.
In 2007-08, Moore set a new career high in goals with 21, while also reaching the 20-goal mark for the first time in his career. He finished second on the team with 53 points (21 goals, 32 assists). The following year, he improved upon those numbers by scoring 26 goals and posting 69 points in 80 games.
On June 23, 2009, the Rangers announced that they had agreed to terms with Moore on a six-year contract worth $24 million. He became the highest paid player at his position not named Crosby or Ovechkin.
During the 2011-12 season, Moore set a new career high with 81 points (26 goals). He finished second on the team in scoring behind Martin St. Louis who scored 35 goals. The next year, he continued to be one of the top scorers in the league with 109 points (32 goals). He led the team in scoring for the third consecutive season.
He was a member of the same recruiting class as Charlie Ward, the 1993 Heisman Trophy winner. But his football career was cut short when the 6-5, 230-pound Weinke was selected by the Toronto Blue Jays in the second round of the 1990 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft (the 62nd player overall).
Weinke's professional baseball career lasted only five seasons, but during that time he had a role in two of the most memorable games in Florida State history. In 1991, he started a game at third base for the injured Mark Van Dyke and didn't return until after the fourth inning with Florida State leading 7-6. The next year, he hit a walk-off home run in the 12th inning of that same game to give FSU a 9-8 win over Clemson.
Weinke finished his FSU career with a.443 batting average, three home runs, and 26 RBIs in 44 games. After his graduation from Florida State in 1992, he went on to have a nine-year NFL career as a quarterback with the Buffalo Bills and Carolina Panthers. He currently works as a color analyst for Seminoles sports radio station WFNS.
Here's how his baseball career unfolded:
1990 - Toronto Blue Jays
1991 - traded to the San Diego Padres along with John Kruk and Jeff Kingery for Tony Fernández
