This is great!

Being still only 18, he won't get to play a whole season with Manch until 2012-13. So this is a great way for us to get a look-see at him (and for him to gauge the AHL as prospective pro).

With Loktionov out, Manch could use a good playmaking center, which is what he is.

This will be interesting.

GOOD LUCK JORDAN!!!
KNOCK 'EM DEAD!!!!

I met him at the draft at the end of day 1. I thought he was an actor/fan maybe from the show Entourage, lol. He was real small.

When he got drafted the next day, I finally figured out who he was...using my 2010 THN Future Watch and looking at the monitors at Staples.

He was a very, very nice kid and you could tell he just loved being at the draft and signing autos.

I thought this might happen, with his team being out of the playoffs.

He will need to grow two more inches, and at least put on 25 pounds.

If you read the chl sticky we broke this awhile ago

Weal is a tough call to me. He has all of the skill you could want to become an NHLer but he plays light and is reminiscent of other smaller talented forwards who just miss the mark for me. I am happy to wait and see how things go for him and he is a really nice kid but unless things change I have to wonder if he will play in the NHL the way the game is played today.

In the last few minutes it was reported that the assist was taken away and given to Azevedo.

That would definitely make him a better hockey player.

Wheels is small, and I have not seen him play in Juniors, but I will tell you this. I went to Phoenix in September to watch the both games of the rookie tournament, and he did just fine. He used his speed and vision to score, and looked a lot better than Tofolli playing against some current NHL'ers, AHL'ers, and Jr players in the Phoenix organization. In other words, virtually every player on the ice was bigger and older than him and he held his own, at least in the offensive end. I don't remember much about D. Both he and Kozun looked like they had excellent quickness.

Anyone have anything to say about how he looked in the pro game? I know he was credited with an assist and had it taken away but was he doing good things all night? Any glaring issues outside of size?

He was by far my favorite player at rookie camp all 3 days. He's not blazing fast by any means, but he's smart, creative and smooth. Couple things i really liked was how he dealt with small spaces and situations at top speed, he handles both situations above average.

However the thing that stood out to me about Weal was his ability to pick-pocket. He creates a lot of offense with this under-rated skill. Bummer about his size, but i believe that these other skills will eventually get him to the NHL.

I thought he was one of the faster skaters, if not, the fastest, at this years rookie camp. Of course, I was judging this by the videos from another poster.

Maybe I'm wrong.
