The Montreal Canadiens announced Tuesday that the team has agreed to terms on a two-year contract extension with forward Dale Weise.
"The acquisition of Dale Weise contributed to the success of our team this season. A young veteran with a lot of character, Dale is an intense player with a strong work ethic. We're very pleased to have him as part of our team moving forward," Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin said in a statement.
In 61 games with the Canadiens and the Vancouver Canucks in 2013-14, Weise recorded 16 points (6 goals, 10 assists). Weise added seven points (3 goals, 4 assists) in 16 playoff games, leading the Canadiens with two winning goals (tied with Max Pacioretty and Rene Bourque).
Weise, 25, has produced 30 points (13 goals, 17 assists) in 179 regular season contests since his NHL debut with the New York Rangers in 2010-11. He has seven points (3 goals, 4 assists) in 22 playoff games.
A native of Winnipeg, Weise was drafted by the Rangers in the fourth round, 111th overall at the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He was acquired from the Canucks on February 3 for defenceman Raphael Diaz.
