Rangers' Jimmy Vesey: Lights lamp in shutout
Vesey potted a goal in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Blue Jackets.
Vesey opened the scoring with a wrist shot from the faceoff circle. He's at double digits in goals (11) and assists (14) for the first time since 2018-19, when he completed his third NHL campaign in the Big Apple. Vesey reached 500 career games played last Thursday, though the 2016 Hobey Baker Award winner has yet to stand out offensively after career stops in Buffalo, Toronto, Vancouver and New Jersey, with his service time for the Rangers sandwiching those stints. Overall, Vesey has recorded 83 goals and 77 assists between the aforementioned franchises.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Jimmy Vesey: Earns helper in defeat
Vesey garnered an assist against Carolina on Tuesday.
Vesey has put just two shots on net in his last four games and, unsurprisingly, hasn't scored a goal over that stretch. Despite this mini-slump, the 29-year-old winger has already tallied 10 goals and 24 points this season, both of which are thresholds he hasn't reached since 2018-19 during his first stint with the Rangers. Without a power-play role, Vesey's fantasy value and offensive production is likely to be limited to mid-range at best.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Jimmy Vesey: Contributes two assists Saturday
Vesey recorded two assists in a 6-2 victory over Carolina on Saturday.
Vesey has nine goals and 20 points in 52 contests this season. He's been a decent offensive contributor lately with two goal and five points in his last seven outings. Vesey entered Saturday's action averaging just 13:57 of ice time this season, but the 29-year-old did log 16:28 of ice time per game over five contests from Jan. 25-Feb. 10, and he got 16:03 versus Carolina. That recent increase in responsibilities makes Vesey worth monitoring.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Jimmy Vesey: Supplies goal vs. Vegas
Vesey netted a goal in a 4-1 win against Vegas on Friday.
Vesey scored on an empty net at 18:36 of the third period to put the Rangers up 4-1. He has nine goals and 17 points in 48 games in 2022-23. Vesey's provided two goals over his last three contests after enduring a four-game scoring drought from Jan. 12-19.... See More ... See Less

Vesey scored a goal on one shot in the Rangers' 4-3 overtime loss to the Devils on Saturday.
Vesey opened the scoring with a shot from the slot that beat Vitek Vanecek only 1:34 into the game. With this performance, the former Devil now has a two-game point streak and could be starting to heat up. On the year, Vesey has seven goals and 14 points in 40 games.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Jimmy Vesey: Inks two-year extension
Vesey agreed to terms on a two-year, $1.6 million contract extension with the Rangers on Wednesday.

Rangers' Jimmy Vesey: Two goals help lead way
Vesey scored two goals Thursday in a 3-1 win over the Maple Leafs.
His first goal was pure skill. Vesey got the puck from Vincent Trocheck, made a move around a sliding T.J. Brodie, and went forehand-backhand-roof on a short-side shot past Matt Murray from the right circle. It put the Rangers up 2-1 late in the third, and he scored into an empty net to seal the game 3-1. The goals were Vesey's first in seven games. He has five goals and six assists in 30 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Jimmy Vesey: Snags assist Monday
Vesey registered an assist in Monday's 4-3 win over the Devils.
Vesey had been mired in a five-game pointless streak before Monday's tally. As a result of his slump, the 29-year-old winger saw himself knocked from a first-line role into the bottom six. While his assist could spark some production, the fact that Vesey has just three shots in his last five games, which is not exactly the type of shoot-first mentality fantasy players likely are hoping for....

Rangers' Jimmy Vesey: Capitalizes on increased role
Vesey provided a goal in Wednesday's 3-1 win against Ottawa.
Vesey ended a three-game point drought, bringing him up to three goals and eight points in 23 contests this season. He averaged just 11:37 of ice time through his first 15 games of the campaign, but that jumped to 14:28 in seven contests from Nov. 13-28. The 29-year-old forward then logged 15:25 on Wednesday. He had just eight goals and 15 points in 68 games last season, so expectations shouldn't be high, but his increased role does give him an opportunity to contribute more offensively.... See More ...

Vesey produced an assist, three shots on goal and three hits in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Sharks.
Vesey has picked up a goal and three helpers over his last five games. He saw a season-high 16:09 of ice time in this contest, and he's been trending up in that regard over the last week. The winger has six points, 32 shots on net, 29 hits and a plus-5 rating in 18 appearances overall. He may be worth a look in deeper formats while he's playing next to Mika Zibanejad at even strength.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Jimmy Vesey: Notches helper
Vesey recorded an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Coyotes.
Vesey helped out on a Ryan Carpenter goal in the third period. Through 16 games this season, Vesey has five points, 29 shots on net, 25 hits and a plus-4 rating while mainly playing in a bottom-six role. He's seen some top-six usage at even strength lately, and it's helped him record three points in his last three outings, but that's not likely to be a prolonged surge for the 29-year-old winger....

Vesey, who added four shots and two hits Thursday, recorded his first multi-point game since registering a goal and an assist against the Blue Jackets on Jan. 8.... See More ... See Less

Rangers' Jimmy Vesey: Joins Rangers on PTO
Vesey inked a professional tryout agreement with the Rangers on Friday, per CapFriendly.
Vesey is going for a second stint with New York after making his NHL debut with them back in 2016 and went on to log 240 games during his first stint with the Rangers. Last year he joined the Devils' camp on a tryout and went on to earn a one-year deal. He had eight goals and 15 points in 68 games with New Jersey. The Rangers have a solid amount of depth, so Vesey making the team isn't a foregone conclusion, but if he has a good camp it's certainly a real possibility.... See More ... See Less
Devils' Jimmy Vesey: Forgettable season in Jersey
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.

Vesey (leg) will play Thursday against Carolina, per Devils team reporter Catherine Bogart.
Vesey will play for the first time since April 5 after missing the last 10 games. The 28-year-old has just one point in his last 22 games, giving him 14 through 66 games on the year. He'll return to a bottom-line role Thursday.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
