The Flyers re-signed Jordan Weal to a two-year deal worth $3.5M (1.75M AAV).
Weal was reportedly highly sought after after becoming an unrestricted free agent, but decided to return to the Flyers. Last season he had just 12 pints (8G / 4A) in 23 games with the Flyers, but dominated the AHL scoring 15 goals with 32 assists (47 points) in 43 games with Lehigh Valley. Weal is fully expected to be a full-time NHLer in 2017-18.
The Flyers have recalled Jordan Weal from Lehigh Valley (AHL).
Weal, 24, leads the Phantoms with 47 points (15G / 32A) in 43 games and that ranks him second in the AHL. With Travis Konecny out for at least one month, Weal has been recalled and skated with Sean Couturier and Jakub Voracek in Friday’s practice.
Weal will be in the Flyers' lineup on Thursday.
Weal has only appeared in one game since being picked up by the Flyers, having served as a healthy scratch in the last six games. He will replace Scott Laughton in the lineup tonight.
Weal is expected to make his Flyers' debut.
Weal was acquired in the Vincent Lecavalier, Luke Schenn deal, but served as a healthy scratch in his first nine games with the Flyers. On Monday, that is expected to change. Weal had no points in 10 games with the Kings, but had 69 points (20G / 49A) in 73 games with Manchester (AHL) last season.
The Flyers have acquired Jordan Weal and a 2016 3rd round pick from the Kings for Vincent Lecavalier and Luke Schenn.
Weal, 23, was a third round pick (70th overall) in 2010 NHL Draft. Weal has no points in 10 career NHL games (all this season) and is coming off of a year where he had 69 points (20G / 49A) in 73 games with Manchester (AHL).
Weal will make his NHL debut on Friday.
Weal, 23, is expected to replace Andy Andreoff in the Kings’ lineup on Friday. The 2010 third round pick (70th overall) had 20 goals and 49 assists (69 points) in 73 games with Manchester (AHL) last season.
The Kings have recalled Jordan Weal from Manchester (AHL).
Weal, 22, has 19 goals and 46 assists (65 points) in 70 games with Manchester this season. With the Kings out of the playoffs, Weal will likely make his NHL debut on Saturday. He was a third round pick (70th overall) in 2010.
eturned to juniors were Michael Schumacher, Jordan Weal, Christopher Gibson, Pierre Durepos, Michael Morrison, Taylor Carnevale and Michael Kantor.
Weal failed to make the cut, which speaks more to the supporting cast in Los Angeles than his talent level. Last season, the pivot scored 43 goals and 96 points for the Regina Pats of the WHL. Keep an eye out for him in a few seasons.
The Kings have signed forward prospects Tyler Toffoli and Jordan Weal to standard three-year, entry-level contracts. Both players are currently with the AHL’s Manchester Monarchs under amateur-tryout agreements, so this does not change their short-term status.
