He isn’t going to be sent down to the Phantoms, at least not yet:
No plans to send Dale Weise to the AHL (he cleared waivers today) or recall anyone from #LVPhantoms at this time per Chuck Fletcher.

If a player clears waivers, you’ve got 30 days or 10 games (whichever comes first) to reassign him to the AHL. Weise will be a healthy scratch tonight, but if he’s still on the roster by 2/12, which would be 10 games, then he’d have to clear waivers again to be sent down.
The only other wrinkle is that if the Flyers wanted to package him into a trade, the other team involved would now be able to assign Weise to their minor league club. That doesn’t seem a likely scenario.
