Jordan Weal

Not much hype yet for this kid. Is he going to be the real deal for the 2010 entry draft? I dont know. Leading the WHL in scoring right now. Looks to be more of a playmaker than shooter. Only 16 years old. He was 79 th overall in the bantam draft.

Weal played in ND Hounds Batam AAA team last. Weal played in 25 games that season and finished with 42 goals and 48 assists for 90 points. That is some serious #'s. As I recall vinny played the same league as a 15 year old and had 50 some goals and 50 assists. Should we be expecting big things?

I would love to hear some scouting reports on the kid.

Weal played Midget AAA in B.C. last winter - it was the year before that he played in Notre Dame.

I saw weal in training camp for the first time. Unbelievable hockey player. He demanded respect on the ice. Him and eberle were playing on a line. There were times it was Eberle keeping up with Weal. I can't say enough about his play. It shouldn't take long before the chatter starts.

Why has the name Jordan become so popular since the late 80's?

2nd Round

He's rated 45 overall on midterm rankings (NA Skaters); but in my opinion he's at least in top 15. Problem in so bad ranking is same as Seguin's last year- he has good linemate(s) (Eberle), but since Chris Terry went to AHL this year- Seguin has been playing even better (Weal without Eberle had 14pts in 11gms). So my opinion is that he's very risky player, but he should be in top 15.

I would be very surprised if anyone picks him higher than 25th. I expect him to be a mid 2nd rounder.

Jordan Knight from New Kids on the Block, I believe is the reason for the names popularity.

Weal has 1st round talent, he has plenty of room to pack weight onto his frame and is an excellent skater.

He still has the appearance he will put on couple inches as well, likely never reaching 6', but close.

I dont seehim being as good a sniper as Skinner, but I think his skating may make the jump to the next level easier.

A lot of small guys with tons of talent available this year (Hishon, Weal, Schwartz, Spooner), a lot of teams may be kicking themselves down the road for taking the bigger less skilled player, if these small guys either grow, or just become skilled NHLers.

Out of the 2 high end 5'8 propects in this draft, I'd probably take Weal over Granlund, just because Weal has the explosive speed a player of his size will probably need to make it to the NHL, Granlund does not have it, Granlund might have a very hard time making the NHL.

Bump.


Now listed on the Pats website as 5'9, 165.

But he does have 100 points in 70 games. Where does he go this year? 4th round or later just because of his size? He is almost the exact same size as Kozun, and has the exact same point totals as he did last year...but Kozun was taken in the 6th.

First Azevedo (6th round), than Kozun (6th round) and now Weal in the 3rd round. Lets hope one will develop into a quality player for the Kings.

I put my money on Kozun.

Quite safe to say he'll always be very small. And he just isn't talented enough to make up for it, IMO. Could always surprise but i very much doubt it.

Yep because 17 year olds who arent talented always put up 100pts in the Dub.

Please direct me to where i said he's not talented. Don't be angry just because i'm not overly positive of a prospect you first heard of today.

Sorry not talented enough, that better? Not angry, just think your name fits.

He puts up 70 pts as a 16 yr old then 102 at 17. One of 3 players to put up 100+ in the Dub this year. The other two were both overagers. But hey hes not talented enough right?

Yes. In my opinion he's not talented enough to make it in the NHL at his size, i don't think his game translates all that well to the pro game.

You seem to think a top-3 talent just fell to the 3rd round. I'm eagerly awaiting some more stats from junior hockey.

Relaxed guys. It's nice weather, at least here in Holland for the first time this year.

I think mostly clueless meant Weal is lacking great skills to make up for his size. Talented but not talented enough to compete in the NHL. That's very well possible. Weal's point totals might be inflated because of Jordan Eberle too.



Anyway, I think Kozun might surprise because of his hands/exceptional speed. Azevedo has been injured for most part.

Never said he was a top 3 talent.
