The Philadelphia Flyers signed forward Jordan Weal to a two-year contract on Thursday.
TSN’s Pierre LeBrun reports that the deal is worth $3.5 million overall (or $1.75 per season).
With the likes of Brayden Schenn out of town, perhaps Weal can earn some better opportunities to convert his promising AHL stats to more robust numbers at the highest level. Weal managed a solid 12 points in 23 games last season, receiving 14:19 TOI per night, easily the best reps he’s received at this level.
The 25-year-old avoids free agency, where he might have been able to draw some solid offers.
