Calgary Flames defenseman MacKenzie Weegar (illness) is expected to be back in the lineup Wednesday against Vancouver. He landed on the shelf with a non-COVID illness prior to Monday's action versus Montreal, but Weegar has had a couple of days to recover and looks to be on track to return to the lineup after participating in the morning skate. The 28-year-old has had a disappointing campaign offensively with only six points in 28 games, but he's put in a lot of work on the defensive side of things, registering 63 hits and 43 blocks.
Calgary Flames defenseman MacKenzie Weegar is battling an illness and might not play Monday versus Montreal. He missed the morning skate with a non-COVID illness, and if Weegar can't play either, he will sit out his first contest of the season. The 28-year-old is having a disappointing debut campaign in Calgary, boasting only six points through 28 games after having a career year in 2021-22 with 44 points. He hasn't even scored a single goal yet despite firing 50 shots on the net. If Weegar can't go on Monday, Nikita Zadorov looks set to take his spot on the second defensive pairing, while Connor Mackey will get an opportunity to make his sixth appearance of the season.
Calgary Flames defenseman MacKenzie Weegar has agreed to an eight-year extension with the club. He earned himself a $50 million deal and will start to carry a $6.25 million cap hit from next season. Weegar, who was part of the Jonathan Huberdeau trade in the summer, had a career year with 44 points last season with the Panthers, adding 156 blocks and 179 hits. The 28-year-old has developed into one of the best defensemen in fantasy hockey and he should put up similar numbers in a top-pairing role in Calgary.
Florida Panthers defenseman MacKenzie Weegar played a significant role in defeating Carolina 4-3 in overtime on Saturday. Weegar contributed to all four Panthers tallies, recording a goal and three helpers. The 27-year-old defenseman has been an essential player for Florida all season, with four goals and 25 assists through 47 games. He logs over 22:00 minutes of total ice time per contest. He floats a bit under the radar in fantasy play as he is rostered in just 60 percent of leagues.
