UPDATED (2:35 p.m.): Jordan Weal took part in his first practice session today playing alongside Sean Couturier and Jakub Voracek, who both add size. Now with the addition of Weal, speed and playmaking is something we could see plenty of from this new line combination tomorrow vs. San Jose.
"Hockey is hockey. You just have to go out there and play," added Weal who moved to the wing after playing center in Lehigh Valley. "I get to play with some great players so I gotta go out there and work with them and move the puck and create some offense," added Weal.
Unlike last season, Weal has seen a good amount of game action, rather than being an extra forward seeing limited ice time when he arrived midseason last year. That game action has helped his game grow and got him into more of a rhythm.
His new line mates notice the difference as well. "He's a fast player. A smart, fast player that has a lot of skill, so obviously he can bring a lot to the lineup." said Voracek.
