Rumor: A Jimmy Vesey reunion on Broadway?

Per Larry Brooks, the Rangers may have a Jimmy Vesey reunion on Broadway. The Rangers traded Vesey to Buffalo for a third round pick on July 1, 2019. The pick became Jayden Grubbe in 2021. Vesey was traded as the Rangers were able to land both Artemiy Panarin and Jacob Trouba, thus Vesey’s salary needed to be cut.

The Return of Jimmy Vesey

The Rangers have made another move adding more depth and flexibility to the bottom half of their roster. This time the player they’re bringing in is a familiar face. While it may have only been six years ago, the Jimmy Vesey sweepstakes feel as if they’re from another lifetime. The Rangers signing the young winger out of Harvard University felt like an enormous win for the team in 2016. Nowadays, it’s almost impossible to identify or truly remember this feeling when our best prospect at the time was Brady Skjei. Don’t get me wrong, the team found a way to draft players that have developed into impact players or even legitimate NHL stars (Igor Shesterkin and Pavel Buchnevich) but our cupboard was running dry as the Rangers had made consecutive deep postseason runs and traded many of their recent first-round picks.

Vesey had eight goals and seven assists over 68 games in 2021-22. Vesey played primarily in the bottom six for a rebuilding New Jersey team. He scored at least 16 goals in each of his first three NHL campaigns but hasn't broken double digits in any of the three seasons since. The Boston native turns 29 in May and is set to be an unrestricted free agent.

Devils' Jimmy Vesey: Traveling with team

Vesey (leg) will join the Devils for their upcoming two-game road trip, Sam Kasan of the Devils' official site reports Monday. Vesey has missed the last nine games while dealing with his leg injury but appears close to getting back on the ice. Even before getting hurt, the Boston native was struggling to produce with just one point in his last 22 contests. As such, fantasy players shouldn't be expecting more than low-end value once Vesey is cleared to play.

Devils' Jimmy Vesey: Facing one-week absence

Vesey (leg) will miss at least a week, including Thursday's matchup with Montreal, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports. Vesey has just one assist in his last 22 contests, so few fantasy players figure to be impacted by his absence.

Devils' Jimmy Vesey: Absent from practice Monday

Vesey was excused from practice Monday due to a non-COVID illness. Vesey's inability to practice will certainly raise doubts regarding his availability versus the Rangers on Tuesday. Considering the 28-year-old winger has managed just one point in his previous 14 outings, his potential absence from the lineup is unlikely to impact the majority of fantasy players.

Devils' Jimmy Vesey: Point drought up to seven games

Vesey had two shots, a blocked shot, two PIM and a hit in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Rangers. Vesey delivered a versatile stat line, though his production didn't exactly jump off the page. Between his third-line role on the rebuilding Devils and current seven-game point drought, Vesey doesn't have much going for him from a fantasy perspective at the moment.

Devils' Jimmy Vesey: Dishes out dime

Vesey provided an assist in a 2-1 loss to the Hurricanes on Saturday. Vesey went six games without depositing a point before helping out Jesper Boqvist in the first period of this one. The left winger has had his ups and downs this season and is not seeming like he'll return to the 35-point peak he set in 2018 across 81 games, with just 12 points in 40 contests this season.

Jimmy Vesey Providing Leadership Goals For New Jersey Devils

October 13, 2016. That was the day Jimmy Vesey made his NHL debut with the New York Rangers. A lot can change in five years, and while sometimes it can feel like a long time ago, things can change quickly. Vesey is now on his fifth team and has played in all 28 games for the New Jersey Devils this season. He wasn’t brought in as a highly-touted prospect like the kid from five years ago, he had to sign a PTO to join training camp and earned himself a one-year contract as a bottom-six forward and penalty kill specialist.
