Maple Leafs' Jimmy Vesey: Breaks out in Edmonton
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vesey scored a pair of goals on two shots and added two hits in Wednesday's 6-1 win over the Oilers.

Vesey was mired in a brutal 17-game goal drought that began in late January. Coincidentally, his last goal came Jan. 22 against the Oilers. Vesey opened the scoring midway through the first period Wednesday after jumping off the bench to bury a shot from the bottom of the right circle, then he made it 2-0 early in the second on a 2-on-0 rush resulting from a poor Edmonton line change. Vesey now has four goals and two assists across 24 games.

Maple Leafs' Jimmy Vesey: Ice time dropping
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vesey has two goals and an assist in 14 games this season, but hasn't put up any points in his last six games.

His ice time has been dropping across those six games to a season-low 9:40 on Wednesday against Montreal. Vesey has been a fixture on the third line, but with Joe Thornton returning soon from injury, he could find himself Ubered down to the taxi squad.

Maple Leafs' Jimmy Vesey: Pockets assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vesey recorded an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Flames.

Vesey had the secondary helper on Wayne Simmonds' first-period tally. Working in a third-line role, Vesey has three points, 11 shots on goal, five hits and a plus-1 rating through eight appearances. The Massachusetts native doesn't get more than a trace of power-play time, and he's averaging only 13:03 per game overall. Such a limited role makes him a risky option for most fantasy managers.

Maple Leafs' Jimmy Vesey: Notches first goal as Leaf
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vesey scored a goal in a 5-4 overtime win Wednesday over the Canadiens. It was his first game as a Maple Leaf.

The talented winger acknowledged that he got off to a poor start in Buffalo last season and never recovered. Vesey looked like a new man Wednesday night and appears to have a strong fit within the Toronto system. He may surprise this season in deep leagues that don't overweigh power-play production, as he's not likely to see much action with the man advantage.

Maple Leafs' Jimmy Vesey: Heading north of border
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vesey signed a one-year, $900,000 contract with Toronto on Sunday.

Vesey struggled in his only season with the Sabres during the 2019-20 campaign, scoring just nine goals and 20 points, both career worsts. His 13:48 of average ice time was also the lowest since his rookie season. The 27-year-old winger will likely skate in Toronto's bottom six.

Sabres' Jimmy Vesey: Upside doesn't materialize
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With the Sabres being one of seven NHL teams that won't be part of the playoffs, Vesey has played his last game of 2019-20 and will soon become an unrestricted free agent, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

Vesey didn't perform poorly, though like a lot of Sabres his production was modest and he only put up 20 points in 64 games while barely seeing any power play time. He got better as the season went along, and even though he's probably in line for a bigger salary than the $2.275 million he made in 2019-20, the Sabres seem like a decent bet to bring him back under a new deal.

Sabres' Jimmy Vesey: Snags helper in 300th career game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vesey registered an assist and two shots on net in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

Vesey had a hand in Dominik Kahun's first-period tally. For the fourth straight year, Vesey has recorded 20 points. He did so in 60 contests this year. The 26-year-old has never had fewer than 27 points in a full season, which came in his rookie year of 2016-17. He should end up at a similar total by the end of 2019-20.

Sabres' Jimmy Vesey: Adds insurance marker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vesey scored a goal on two shots in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

Vesey's tally capped a three-goal burst over a span of 1:31 from the Sabres. The 26-year-old winger has posted 19 points, 85 shots and a plus-14 rating in 55 games this season. He's still seeing top-six minutes even with Victor Olofsson back from injury, but Vesey will have to battle for a prime scoring role over the remainder of the year.

Sabres' Jimmy Vesey: Two points including winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vesey scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 3-2 win over the Rangers.

He added four shots, three hits and a plus-2 rating to his ledger as he matched up against his former team. Vesey's third-period tally gave the Sabres a 3-0 lead and wound up being the game-winner after the Rangers lit the lamp twice inside the final three minutes. The 26-year-old is starting to find his footing on Jack Eichel's line, scoring two goals and three points in the last two games, but Vesey's running out of time to really take advantage with Victor Olofsson (lower body) nearing a return to practice.

Sabres' Jimmy Vesey: Collects goal in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vesey notched a goal during Thursday's shootout loss to Detroit.

The tally snapped a five-game point drought for the winger. He has just two points -- both goals -- in his past 10 outings. Vesey has been playing on the Sabres' top line, but he's been showing little production given the quality of his linemates in Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart. He sits at just 15 points through 50 contests.

Sabres' Jimmy Vesey: Nets tally in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vesey scored a goal, dished two hits and went plus-2 in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Stars.

Vesey scored 7:01 into the game, converting on a Sam Reinhart pass. It's been a tough start to Vesey's career with the Sabres, as he has 14 points, 65 shots on goal and a plus-11 rating in 44 contests. He's not seeing the power-play time he got with the Rangers in the previous three seasons -- that explains some of his struggles. He's also shooting just 9.2 percent this season, compared to an 11.9 percent success rate in his career.

Sabres' Jimmy Vesey: Healthy scratch Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vesey was a healthy scratch during Sunday's 5-1 win over the Sabres.

Vesey played on the top line with Jack Eichel during Saturday's loss to the Canucks, and he recorded two shots on net and a minus-1 rating across 16:47 of ice time. However, Vesey faced a freefall demotion the next day, as he served as a healthy scratch for the first time this season.

Sabres' Jimmy Vesey: Collects assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vesey picked up an assist during Saturday's win over Los Angeles, his seventh of the season.

The point snapped a mini three-game point drought. Vesey has been a streaky player for the Sabres, as all of his points have been scored in two, three or four-game stretches. Perhaps he'll keep that trend going by finding the scoresheet again during Monday's visit to Ottawa.

Sabres' Jimmy Vesey: Two-point night in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vesey scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 6-4 win over the Maple Leafs.

He helped set up a Casey Mittelstadt tally in the second period, then stole the puck in the Leafs' end and tucked home what proved to be the game-winner midway through the third. Vesey has now tickled twine in three straight games and recorded a point in four straight, but on the season he still only has three goals and seven points through 23 contests.

Sabres' Jimmy Vesey: Busts out of slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vesey scored his first goal of the season in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Lightning.

Vesey's first goal of the campaign took 21 games, giving the winger four points. Playing 12:55 a night, the lowest average ice time of Vesey's career, the former Ranger is not having much luck in Buffalo and probably isn't deserving of a fantasy roster spot at this point.

Sabres' Jimmy Vesey: Top-line assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vesey is expected to skate on the top line Thursday against Boston with Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.

Vesey is somehow still searching for his first goal of the campaign, so if he can't score with his two new linemates, nothing's working. Vesey has a long way to re-prove himself after scoring 17 goals last season with the Rangers, as he only has a measly two assists in 18 games with the Sabres. We'll see how he does with his new grouping, so if you're feeling lucky perhaps he's an uber-shrewd cheap DFS play for a night. Still, Vesey is seeing just six seconds of power-play time per game.

Sabres' Jimmy Vesey: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vesey (upper body) is expected to return to the lineup Saturday against the Islanders.

Vesey, who's notched two helpers in 11 games this campaign, will return to a bottom-six role against the Islanders.

Sabres' Jimmy Vesey: Upgraded to day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vesey (upper body) has been upgraded from week-to-week to day-to-day but won't play Friday against the Capitals, John Vogl of The Athletic reports.

Vesey is clearly making progress in his recovery, but there's still no definite timetable for his return to the lineup. Once he's cleared to play, the 26-year-old American, who's notched two assists in 11 games this campaign, will slot into a bottom-six role.

Sabres' Jimmy Vesey: Evaluated on week-to-week basis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The team announced Sunday that Vesey's status is week-to-week due to an upper-body injury.

Vesey suffered the injury in Thursday's loss to the Rangers, and after being re-evaluated by team doctors was deemed week-to-week. In theory, Vesey still has a chance to suit up in Monday's matchup against Arizona, but if he can't go, Evan Rodrigues figures to continue to slot into the lineup.

Sabres' Jimmy Vesey: Unavailable against Red Wings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vesey (upper body) won't play in Friday's game against the Red Wings.

Vesey won't travel with the team, and he'll instead be evaluated by Buffalo's training staff over the weekend. He'll aim to get back into the lineup for Monday's matchup against the Coyotes, but Evan Rodrigues figures to slot into the lineup for now.
