Conference Call: Kings GM Dean Lombardi Talks up Jordan Weal

Weal Jordan AHL Monarchs by Rich TiltonWe will have a ton of content up shortly from Kings GM Dean Lombardi’s conference call this afternoon. To kick things off, here is what he had to share on Jordan Weal when MayorsManor asked for an update on the current points leader in the AHL Calder Cup playoffs:

“He just won’t be denied. It’s hard to explain. I’ll try to give you an example – he’s always fought the size issue, as a lot of smaller players have had to do, and they become so driven. He goes through another solid regular season [this year], but you saw in the first round of the playoffs, it was very physical. Phoenix’s [AHL] team tried to run us out of the building. They were heavy, and [Weal] was one of our best players out there. He showed he could play in a physical series. The next series was more skill and stuff, and he was more than fine there, even though his space was closing because it’s the playoffs. Again, he just keeps on showing you. ‘Keep doubting me, I dare you,’ It’s almost like he says it every time he gets on the rink. He’s pretty good.”
