    Kings' Jordan Weal: Expected to make NHL debut Friday

    Weal is expected to make his NHL debut Friday against the Coyotes, NHL.com's Dan Rosen reports.It appears as though head coach Darryl Sutter will slot Weal into the Kings' lineup in an attempt to shake things up after Wednesday's 5-1 loss to the Sharks. Weal is only 5-foot-10, but has a ton of offensive talent. He tallied 69 points (20 goals, 49 assists) in 73 games with AHL Manchester last season. He's unlikely to carry that type of production into the NHL, but could still be a difference maker for the Kings on offense.

    Analysis: Jordan Weal spent all of last season in the AHL where he played in 76 games, scored 23 goals, and added 47 assists with a plus-28 rating.

If he continues to produce like he did last season in the AHL, Weal could get called up to the Kings in the near future.

    Analysis: Jordan Weal finished fifth in the WHL last season with 96 points and is on pace to shatter that mark this season. The only question on Weal is whether or not his lack of size (5-8, 158 pounds) will catch up with him as he moves up the pro ranks.
