Vesey notched a shorthanded assist, two shots on goal and a minus-2 rating in Sunday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Flames.
Vesey helped out on J.T. Miller's shorthanded goal at 11:28 of the third period. The 27-year-old Vesey has assists in consecutive games, but he's picked up only three helpers in 18 outings with the Canucks. The Massachusetts native has 10 points, 56 shots on net and a minus-12 rating in 48 appearances overall when accounting for his time with the Maple Leafs this year.
Vesey posted an assist Saturday in a 4-1 win over the Oilers.
Vesey kept his eye on the puck for a key takeaway in the defensive zone and quickly found Travis Boyd for the score. With no goals and just two helpers through 17 games, Vesey is still trying to fit in with Vancouver; he's been on four different NHL clubs -- including his starting the year in Toronto -- and it certainly seems like the American winger would benefit from more continuity with a given organization. However, he'll likely have to hit the restart button yet again seeing as how he's a pending unrestricted free agent.
Vesey registered an assist in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Oilers.
Vesey ended his 16-game point drought with the assist. Coincidentally, the last time he got on the scoresheet was against the Canucks, as he scored in a 4-2 Maple Leafs win on March 6. The Massachusetts native has only eight points, 49 shots on net, 34 hits and a minus-11 rating through 43 appearances this season.
Vesey was a scratch during Saturday's win over Ottawa.
Vesey has appeared in seven contests for Vancouver but has yet to crack the scoresheet with his new team. He played 21:50 against his former Maple Leafs, but his ice time dropped to the 13-minute mark the following two games before he sat out the next matchup.
Vesey won't play in Wednesday's game against the Senators. It's unclear as to why, but it seems likely it could be related to immigration issues given that he's an American citizen playing for a new Canadian team after leaving the Maple Leafs.

Vesey will drive to Ottawa to join his new team Wednesday, so he'll be an option for Friday's matchup with the Flames, as he won't need to complete a mandatory quarantine. The 27-year-old winger has picked up five goals and seven points in 30 appearances with the Maple Leafs this season.
Vesey was waived by Toronto on Tuesday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.
Vesey has appeared in all 30 of the Maple Leafs' games this season, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him remain on the active roster if he passes through waivers unclaimed. He's picked up five goals and seven points this year.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
