Weight Makes it Back to Back Stanley Cups for LSSU Alumni

Lake Superior State University alumnus Doug Weight has become the fourth Laker to win the Stanley Cup, with the Carolina Hurricanes. Weight, from Warren Michigan, played at Lake Superior State from 1989-91, tallying 50 goals and 94 assists in 88 games. Weight has gone on to play 982 regular season games in the NHL scoring 239 goals and 646 assists for the New York Rangers, Edmonton Oilers, St. Louis Blues, and the Carolina Hurricanes. Weight also amassed 92 playoff games scoring 23 goals to go with 48 assists. Weight suffered what is believed to be a 3rd degree shoulder separation in game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals. The injury forced him to miss games 6 and 7 of the series, but did not prevent him from hoisting the Stanley Cup.

Weight graduated from Notre Dame High School in Harper Woods, Michigan in 1989 where he stared on the varsity hockey team. Weight chose to attend college in hockey mad Sault Ste Marie at Lake Superior State over other options such as the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, and the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League, all of whom where trying to acquire Weight’s services.

Weight’s has represented the United States 9 times in international play since 1991 scoring 10 goals and 39 assists. Weight participated in the 1998, 2002, and 2006 Olympics, but has been held goalless and has recorded only 6 assists in 14 games.

Other former Lakers with their names on the Cup are Jim Dowd, Brian Rolston, and John Grahame.
