EL SEGUNDO, CA — With Anze Kopitar, Mike Richards and Jarret Stoll secure in their positions as the Los Angeles Kings’ top three centers, there is no room for a highly-skilled, young center prospect on the big club’s 2013-14 roster.
But even with that knowledge, Jordan Weal, who was selected by the Kings in the third round of the 2010 National Hockey League Entry Draft (70th overall), has turned some heads during the Kings’ recent Rookie Camp, and now, during their 2013-14 Training Camp.
Both coaches and media alike have noticed Weal’s ability to carry the puck, his shot, and his speed. But there is an underlying reason why these aspects of his game are being noticed more this time around.
