One of the most hotly pursued college prospects in a long time, Vesey somewhat surprisingly signed with the Rangers last summer, but he proceeded to disappoint in his rookie campaign. Expected to step in as an instant top-six mainstay, he often struggled in all phases of the game, finishing with 16 goals, 11 assists and a minus-13 rating in 80 contests. That’s especially frustrating for fantasy owners after he collected nine points in the season’s first 10 games; the Harvard product’s game didn't look “wicked smaht” very often thereafter, and he often found himself banished as far as the fourth line (and the press box a couple times). Of course, we're talking about a 24-year-old who racked up 66 goals and 48 assists over 70 games over his final two collegiate seasons, so it’s much too soon to give up on him.Given his talent level, Vesey's likely to see a significant spike in production as an NHL sophomore.

  2. Jimmy Vesey 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    For the last two years, Vesey has been perhaps the biggest art in college hockey, racking up 114 points in just 70 games while playing for Harvard. He's believed to be able to step into a top-six role right away, and every single team in the league can benefit from that kind of player. However, after he spurned the Preds (who drafted him in the third round in 2012), he had his rights traded to the Sabres, whom he promptly informed that he intends to enter free agency regardless. That leaves Vesey with a lot of intrigue, a lot of hype, and a lot of uncertainty. If the Sabres sign him, they could become a very potent offensive team with yet another shooter to deploy alongside Jack Eichel. Whether Vesey can live up to his billing remains to be seen, but given the attention he’s attracted, he should be one of the league’s top rookies no matter where he lands, with a 20-goal campaign not at all out of the question.
