EL SEGUNDO, CA — Throughout the history of the National Hockey League, young players have made their debut in the best hockey league in the world, with varying degrees of success.
To be sure, many young players dream of playing in the NHL, and about what their first NHL game will be like—scoring a goal, playing well, if not standing out as a star, and winning the game, of course.
But many are not fortunate enough to enjoy that kind of success, including Los Angeles Kings forward Jordan Weal, who made his NHL debut on October 9, 2015, in a 4-1 loss to the Arizona Coyotes at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
