Doug Weight wir in die US Hall of Fame aufgenommen
[quote]Weight announced his retirement May 26, 2011, after 1,238 games. He finished with 278 goals and 1,033 points, which ranks seventh among U.S.-born players.
His career began with the New York Rangers in 1991; he was traded to the Oilers the following season and spent parts of nine seasons in Edmonton, including a career-best 104 points in 1995-96. After three-plus seasons with the Blues, Weight was traded to Carolina in January 2006 and helped the Hurricanes win the Stanley Cup. He returned to St. Louis in the summer of 2006, but was traded again by the Blues, in 2007, to the Anaheim Ducks. He signed with the Islanders in the summer of 2008, where he joined then-captain Guerin one final time. Weight later was named captain, but a back injury limited him to 18 games in 2010-11, leading to his decision to retire.
"I'm humbled and honored to be inducted, and thank goodness for Mr. Karmanos and Mr. [Jim] Rutherford [Carolina general manager] for trading for me; I'll never forget that run to the Cup in 2006," Weight said. "I remember thinking going down Tobacco Road and what the fans might be like when I got there and wondering what it would feel like. I was treated so well there, and to lift that Cup with the team and the people you spent so much time with meant a lot."
In addition to winning the World Cup of Hockey for the United States, Weight was a three-time Olympian, winning a silver medal at the 2002 Salt Lake City Games.
The four-time All-Star serves as an Islanders assistant coach and senior adviser to general manager Garth Snow. He's also an analyst for NHL Network.[quote]
