Observations:

 

September 2013 - Kopitar, Richards and Stoll have the centre positions locked down in Los Angeles, making it extremely difficult for new young pivots to break into the Kings' system and that's exactly the situation Jordan Weal finds himself in. In his first full professional season, Weal tallied 15 goals and 33 points in 63 games with the Manchester Monarchs (AHL). Weal has shown the Kings' coaching staff that he has become stronger over the past year and he's showing to be much more confident during training camp. He's a talented puck carrier, swift skater and gifted distributor that continues to get better with every passing day. Weal is quite undersized by NHL standards so it is vital that he continues to gain strength and he will have the chance to do that while playing with the Monarchs again this season. Brendan Ross

 

 

February 2012 – Weal has been one of the most dangerous forwards in the entire WHL this season. He is a small, shifty, forward that has put up outstanding numbers. With 93 points in 58 games, he is on pace to set new career highs. Weal currently sits 3rd in the WHL scoring race. He is going to have to put the team on his back if the Pats are to make some noise in this year’s playoffs. Zenon Herasymiuk

 

Fantasy Outlook: C-

Has some offensive potential and he's getting stronger but he will need to overcome some veteran talent on the Kings depth chart.
