LW MacDonald Assigned to Rampage

SUNRISE - Florida Panthers General Manager Rick Dudley announced Thursday that the club has recalled C Stephen Weiss and assigned LW Craig MacDonald to San Antonio (AHL).

Weiss, 20, paced San Antonio with six goals and ranked second on the club with nine points (6-3-9). Since being assigned to San Antonio on Oct. 6, Weiss had recorded at least one point in eight of the 10 games he has played. In his most recent action, he scored a pair of goals, leading San Antonio to a 4-1 win over the Manitoba Moose on Wednesday.

The 5-foot-11, 191-pound native of Toronto, Ontario, played in 77 games with the Panthers last year, registering 21 points (6-15-21). He has yet to appear in a regular-season game with Florida this season. Weiss was originally drafted by Florida with the Panthers' first choice (fourth overall) in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.

MacDonald, 26, was scoreless in eight games with the Panthers. For his NHL career, he has played in 66 NHL contests with Florida and Carolina, recording six points (2-4-6). Last season he split time between Carolina and Lowell (AHL), recording eight goals and 23 assists.

The Panthers (4-7-2-0) complete their three-game homestand tomorrow night when they host the Pittsburgh Penguins at 7:30 p.m.
