#WeissFacts: Honoring Weiss On Twitter

by Staff Writer / Florida Panthers
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.
