FROZEN ROYALTY EXCLUSIVE: Los Angeles Kings forward prospect Jordan Weal took some time to speak exclusively with Frozen Royalty during the Kings’ 2012 Development Camp early last month.
EL SEGUNDO, CA — From the time he started playing youth hockey, all the way up to his time in the Western Hockey League, center Jordan Weal has heard the same thing, over and over and over…
…that he was way too small to play junior hockey, let alone at the professional level.
“It’s something I’ve had to deal with all my life, being a smaller guy,” said Weal, who was selected by the Los Angeles Kings in the third round (70th overall) of the 2010 National Hockey League Entry Draft. “People have always said that I’m too small to play, even going into the WHL draft, people thought I was too small to make it.”
