The Philadelphia Flyers have traded Jordan Weal to the Arizona Coyotes for Jacob Graves.

The Philadelphia Flyers have traded forward Jordan Weal to the Arizona Coyotes for defenseman Jacob Graves.

The 26-year old Weal was drafted 70th overall in the 3rd round of the 2010 draft by the LA Kings. He carries a $1.75 million salary cap hit.

The 23-year old Graves was undrafted.

Dave Vest: Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet on the addition of Weal: “He plays that center position, which we’re lacking depth at right now, so we’re excited to get him. There’s some offense to his game, and I think he’s got a good hockey IQ, which I like.”

Dave Vest: Coyotes forward Nick Cousins played with Weal in Philadelphia from 2015-17: “He’s a good two-way player,” Cousins said. “He’s got some skill to his game and he’s good on face-offs, so with our injuries we can use a centerman like that. We’re excited to have him.”
