When the California Golden Seals saw Stan Weir's stats sheet from his days with the Medicine Hat Tigers of the WCJHL, they were excited about the prospects of securing such an offensively prolific young prospect. They added the fleet-footed centreman to their fold in 1972.

He appeared to have the world by a string as he entered the NHL straight from the junior ranks. But once he began to bump shoulders with real, full-grown men, his offensive prowess began to look more like Sampson with a haircut. Over the course of his first six years in the majors, three with the Seals and three with the Leafs, Weir had to reinvent himself as a special teams man who could forecheck, kill penalties, and contribute on the power play. His adaptation was sufficient to insure his employment at the NHL level until midway through the 1977-78 campaign. As a third-year Maple Leaf, he was used too sparingly to support the ongoing development he needed. His lack of progress landed him in the minors with the Tula Oilers of the CHL.

Rather than languish as a minor leaguer, Weir jumped to the Edmonton Oilers of the WHA. There his career fortunes were revived. In spite of injuries, he still managed to net 61 points in 68 games.

In year two, the Oilers and Weir moved to the NHL. The transition sparked his most productive professional campaign. Despite his third-line centre status behind Wayne Gretzky and Ron Chipperfield, he managed to quietly accumulate 33 goals and 33 assists by season's end.

From the top of the mount, however, Weir's offensive productivity began to slowly decline. He remained with the Oilers for an additional year and a half before being traded to the Colorado Rockies. He completed the 1981-82 season and then landed with the Detroit Red Wings for one final campaign. He then descended to the minors where he rounded out his career with the Montana Magic and the Milwaukee Admirals. He hung up his blades for good in 1985.
