The Philadelphia Flyers have re-signed Jordan Weal, just one day before he’d have hit the free agency market. The deal will keep Weal in Philadelphia for two seasons. After being traded to the team from the LA Kings, Weal spent a significant amount of time in the AHL. He was also recently meeting with Vancouver and Montreal, and fielding phone calls from 10 other teams, because Philly wasn’t being quick enough on the draw. So, it’s good to see they came together on a 2 year, $175 million contract.
Over a dozen calls on 25 yr old Jordan Weal. He’s on tour this week and is expected to visit the Canucks. North Van kid. Could be a good fit

Weal’s been tearing up the AHL in preparation for a big career in Philadelphia. 220 points in 264 AHL games? Not too shabby.
Weal avoids free agency and resigns with the Philadelphia Flyers. Two year contract.

Jordan Weal arrived and saw the train wreck that was the Vancouver Canucks and couldn’t get back to Philly fast enough.
