Douglas Daniel Weight (born January 21, 1971) is an American professional ice hockey player and captain of the New York Islanders of the National Hockey League (NHL). He previously played for the New York Rangers, Edmonton Oilers, Carolina Hurricanes, Anaheim Ducks and St. Louis Blues.

He has played two seasons with the New York Rangers, nine seasons with the Edmonton Oilers, five and a half seasons with the St. Louis Blues, and currently plays for the New York Islanders. Weight has also played games in the German Elite League during the shortened 1994–95 NHL season and the cancelled 2004–05 NHL season. In his second time around in the DEL, he played for the Frankfurt Lions along with another NHL star, Stéphane Robidas. The two became instant fan favorites of the Frankfurt fans. Weight is primarily known for his astounding saucer passes, ability to make a play and his grit.

In the 2006 Stanley Cup Finals, Weight and the Carolina Hurricanes suffered a huge blow during Game 5. Weight was sandwiched heavily along the boards by Raffi Torres and Chris Pronger of the Edmonton Oilers in the second period of the game, which the Oilers won 4–3 in overtime. Weight missed the rest of the Finals with a shoulder injury. His team, however, won the Stanley Cup anyway on June 19, 2006.
