Flyers acquire Calder Cup MVP Weal

The Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday traded defenseman Luke Schenn and center Vincent Lecavalier to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for forward Jordan Weal and a third-round pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

Weal, 23, was selected by the Kings in the third round (70th overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. He made his NHL debut with Los Angeles earlier this season and has appeared in 10 games, recording two penalty minutes while averaging 8:07 of ice time per game.

Weal has spent the last three seasons in the American Hockey League. He had a breakout year in 2013-14 with the Kings’ affiliate in Manchester, N.H., where he recorded 70 points (23 goals, 47 assists) in 76 games, which was good for fifth in the league.

Last season, Weal posted 69 points (20 goals, 49 assists) in 73 games for Manchester, which included an appearance in the AHL All-Star Game. He went on to help the Monarchs win the 2015 Calder Cup, earning the Jack A. Butterfield Trophy as the MVP of the Calder Cup Playoffs with 22 points (10 goals, 12 assists) in 19 playoff games. He was also named an AHL Second Team All-Star following the season.
