    Canucks' Linden Vey: Scores lone tally in loss

    Vey scored his second of the season in a 2-1 shootout loss to Columbus on Thursday. Vey finished off a brilliant pass from Bo Horvat to score his first goal since Jan. 15, and now gives him seven points in 17 games this season. After getting cut to begin the season and then later establishing himself during his call-up, Vey has been a regular in the Canucks' lineup and has find some very good chemistry with former major junior teammate Emerson Etem. Vey is skilled but has had trouble establishing himself as a scoring forward in the NHL due to his lack of consistency and size, but could provide the Canucks with some depth scoring down the stretch. Fantasy owners may keep an eye on Vey on the waiver wire but it's unlikely he'll be of any real help.

    Canucks' Linden Vey: Tallies two helpers in victory

    Vey picked up a pair of assists -- one on Daniel Sedin's empty-netter -- in Thursday's 4-2 win over Boston. The 24-year-old center has now accumulated four points in his last four games, showing signs of life that coincide with a recent bump in ice time. He's been over 15 minutes in six straight games now, including 17:43 in this one and a whopping 20:30 on Sunday. This might be an interesting moment to note that Vey has a 116-point junior season under his belt as well as 173 points in 217 AHL games. He's certainly worth a look in deeper leagues and as a cheap option in daily formats.

    Canucks' Linden Vey: Recalled Friday

    Vey was recalled from AHL Utica on Friday. Vey's recall comes in wake of Henrik Sedin suffering a lower-body injury Thursday against Philadelphia. If Henrik isn't able to suit up Friday in Detroit, expect Vey to draw into the lineup. Vey has recorded 29 points in 93 career games in the NHL, but has scored at close to a point per game pace in the AHL. If Vey is given a shot in Vancouver's top-six forward group, he could find himself on the score sheet.

  • Opening season in AHL

    News: Linden Vey was placed on waivers Monday and cleared Tuesday, reports The Province. He will head to AHL Utica.
    Analysis: After a fairly quiet 2014-15 in qhich Linden Vey managed only 24 points in 75 games, it seems likely Vey will pass through waivers. However, at just 24 years old and with two hugely productive AHL campaigns under his belt, Vey retains some long-term upside, so it's surprising to see him pass through waivers safely. He'll likely be the top call-up option for the Canucks when they need help in their forward ranks.
  • Canucks Re-Up Vey For One Year

    News: Linden Vey signed a one-year, $1 million contract extension with the Canucks on Monday, ESPN's Pierre LeBrun reports.
    Analysis: Linden Vey had a bumpy first season in Vancouver, and ended up finishing with 10 goals and 14 assists across 75 games. The Canucks probably view the 23-year-old as a bottom-six option in their forward ranks heading into 2015-16.
  • Canucks' Vey To Play in Game 4

    News: Linden Vey will reenter the lineup for Tuesday's Game 4 against the Flames, Mark Spector of Sportsnet.ca reports.
    Analysis: With Alex Burrows suffered a broken rib during Tuesday's morning skate and being ruled out for the game, Linden Vey will play for the first time since the April 11 regular-season finale against the Oilers. The Canucks are healthy down the middle right now, so it looks like Vey will be forced to shift to the wing Tuesday, possibly as a member of the second line next to Nick Bonino and Chris Higgins.
  • Canucks' Vey Notches Goal In Win

    News: Linden Vey tallied a goal in Tuesday's shootout win over the Predators.
    Analysis: Linden Vey has been seeing regular run as the Canucks' third-line center of late with Brad Richardson nursing a lower-body injury. However, the goal in Tuesday's match went down as his first point in 12 games, making it difficult to justify rostering him until the production starts coming more frequently.
  • Canucks' Vey Extends Point Streak In Loss

    News: Linden Vey extended his point streak to three games Saturday, scoring his ninth goal of the season in a loss to Calgary.
    Analysis: With Nick Bonino (foot) out of the lineup, Linden Vey has taken on second-line centre duty. The 23-year-old has impressed of late, recording two goals and four points in his last five games. With 21 points in 51 games, the speedy 23-year-old could be worth adding in some very deep leagues while Bonino remains out.
  • Canucks' Vey Initiates Scoring Wednesday

    News: Linden Vey potted his eighth goal of the season in Wednesday's win over the Blackhawks.
    Analysis: Linden Vey slotted in on as the Canucks' second-line center with Nick Bonino (lower body) unavailable Wednesday. Since Bonino's injury isn't believed to be a long-term concern, Vey's stay in the Canucks' top six shouldn't last much longer, likely making him a poor speculative pickup.
  • Canucks' Vey To Be Scratched Saturday

    News: Linden Vey will be a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Red Wings, the Vancouver Sun reports.
    Analysis: Ineffective play will force Linden Vey out of the lineup, as the forward hasn't scored a goal in 12 games and has just two assists during that span. Zack Kassian returns from a finger injury to replace Vey, adding some more bulk and physicality to the Vancouver forward ranks.
