RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Vey took another step forward in his second season in the AHL, registering 67 points (22 goals, 45 assists) in 74 games. He certainly benefitted from playing on the same line as hot shot Tyler Toffoli, but he's been a steady riser in the Kings' system the last few seasons, so it wasn't just due to playing alongside Toffoli. He'll head back to the AHL to build off of last year's gains.
Vey had a promising debut (19 goals and 24 assists in 74 games) in the AHL last year after leading the WHL in goals in 2010-11. He has room to add some muscle to his frame (5-11, 176) and could play his way into a mid-season callup. He's not an elite offensive prospect like Tyler Toffoli, but figures to be a solid producer at the NHL level.
Vey led the WHL in scoring with 116 points in just 69 games and was a dominant force in Medicine Hat's playoff run. He doesn't have anything left to prove in the WHL and figures to get his feet wet with Manchester in the AHL. He'll have to earn his spot on the Monarchs so don't be alarmed if he starts the season slowly.
