MayorsManor Live Radio – Jordan Weal talks life as LA Kings prospect

At the 2010 NHL Draft, held in Los Angeles, the Kings went defense first once again, taking college bound blueliner Derek Forbort with their first pick.  After that, GM Dean Lombardi selected forwards with three of his other four selections.

One of those players was Jordan Weal of the Regina Pats. He finished his WHL career last spring by posting 41 goals and 116 points, giving him his second 100+ point season and 40+ goals for the second year in a row.

Now, as a rookie with the Manchester Monarchs, Weal has 23 points (nine goals, 14 assists) through the first 46 games. And, more recently, he’s become the team’s second line center – playing between Colton Yellow Horn on the left and Brandon Kozun on the right.

During today’s show we’ll talk about about his linemates, several challenges that come with adjusting to life in the AHL, teammates that have offered him some good advice this season, Tanner Pearson‘s injury, life away from the rink, his favorite road arenas, golf, outlet shopping, opponents that he’s building some bad blood with, Monarchs fans, a screaming Ron Hextall and much more.

Give it a listen now for Weal’s perspective on life as an LA Kings prospect…
