The Philadelphia Flyers are on a roll within the past week or so. They have done a lot of household cleaning of their own, and now the Flyers have officially resigned Winger Jordan Weal. It’s a two-year $3.5 million contract extension.
Weal is a young speedy forward that proved he belonged in the NHL when the Flyers called him up in the middle of the 2016-17 season. For his career he has registered 8 goals, and 4 assists for a total of 12 points in 37 games played. Weal has seen split action between the Los Angeles Kings and Flyers organizations. He has played in 27 games with the Flyers, and 10 with the Kings. Weal couldn’t be happier that a deal is now in place.
“It’s awesome. They gave me a great chance last year. This is a group thats headed in the right direction. They have a lot of talent, and skill with some of the additions they made. I’m really excited to get back to see the guys.”
This is a great day to be a Flyers fan. The Flyers have preached patience with the young prospects as they continue to grow. This resigning means the Flyers will not give up on the young core. One thing is certain the future is bright in Flyer land.
