  • Avalanche's Mike Vecchione: Hits waiver wire

    Vecchione was placed on waivers by the Avalanche on Friday, James Mirtle of The Athletic reports.

    Vecchione last played in an NHL game back in 2016-17, when he logged two contests with the Flyers. The 27-year-old center has been significantly more productive in the minors, having reached the 35-point threshold in each of his last three seasons. Vecchione figures to be in the mix for a spot on the taxi squad during the final days of camp.

  • Blues' Mike Vecchione: Secures two-way contract

    Vecchione signed a two-way contract with St. Louis on Monday.

    Vecchione hasn't appeared in an NHL contest since 2016-17, and is nothing more than an organizational depth piece at this stage in his career. He can be ignored in all fantasy settings.

  • Flyers' Mike Vecchione: Fails to land NHL spot

    Vecchione was loaned to AHL Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.

    The 2017 Hobey Baker finalist gave his best effort to win a spot in the Flyers' lineup out of training camp, but he'll have to begin his first pro season at the AHL level. Though a rookie, Vecchione is already 24 years old after spending four years with Union College, and he should be able to use that maturity to his advantage while trying to play his way into an NHL recall. Considering that he ripped off 63 points in 38 collegiate games last season, he'll be worth keeping tabs on if he's recalled at any point in 2017-18.

  • Flyers' Mike Vecchione: Signs two-year deal with Flyers

    Vecchione signed a two-year contract with the Flyers on Saturday.

    The Union College standout was a finalist for the 2017 Hobey Baker Award -- which was ultimately given to defenseman Will Butcher from the University of Denver. Once the Flyers knew they'd be out of the playoff picture this past season, Vecchione made his highly anticipated NHL debut and played in a pair of games. He was held pointless in those contests, but it's clear from his final season with the Dutchmen that this kid has offensive skills. In 38 games, he posted a personal-best 29 goals to complement 34 helpers and a plus-19 rating. Vecchione should already be on rosters in keeper leagues and his potential to make an immediate impact in the NHL makes him a worthy flier in deeper drafts.
