NHL trade news: Flyers deal F Jordan Weal to Coyotes for prospect, draft pick

The Flyers have made the first trade of what could be many before the Feb. 25 deadline.

Philadelphia announced Friday it has dealt forward Jordan Weal to the Coyotes for a sixth-round pick and AHL defenseman Jacob Graves.

Philadelphia acquired Weal in a multi-player deal from the Kings for Vincent Lecavalier in 2015.

He had a good season in 2017-18 tallying eight goals and 13 assists, but has struggled to score this year recording just nine points (3 goals, 6 assists) in 28 games for the Flyers.

The Flyers have the second-worst record in the NHL at 16-22-6 and rumors are starting to surround the team on possible trades the team could make.

Wayne Simmonds is a free agent after the season and is one of the bigger names that the team could shop on the market.
