During that time, Weal was selected in the third round, 70th overall, by the Los Angeles Kings during the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. He was recognized for his outstanding play when he was named to the 2011–12 WHL (East) First All-Star Team.
On April 18, 2011, the Kings signed Weal to a three-year entry level contract. While with the Kings' American Hockey League affiliate, the Manchester Monarchs, Weal won the Calder Cup in 2015, being chosen the playoffs' most valuable player with 10 goals and 12 assists.
On January 6, 2016, Weal was traded by the Kings at the mid-point of the 2015–16 season, along with a third round pick, to the Philadelphia Flyers, in exchange for Vincent Lecavalier and Luke Schenn.
In the 2018–19 season, his fourth within the Flyers organization, Weal registered three goals and nine points in 28 games. On January 11, 2019, he was traded to the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for Jacob Graves and a 2019 sixth-round pick. Weal was unable to show his offensive attributes with the Coyotes, contributing just one goal and one assist in 19 games.
On February 25, 2019, the Coyotes traded Weal to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for Michael Chaput. He performed admirably to close out the season for the Canadiens, recording four goals and six assists in 16 games. On April 26, 2019, the Canadiens re-signed Weal to a two-year, $2.8 million contract.
