Observations:

 

May 2013 - Drafted by Nashville in the second round of the 2012 draft after tearing up the EJHL to the tune of over two points per game, Vesey took his talents to the Ivy league in 2013 suiting up for Harvard. Despite the team finishing last in the conference, Vesey was a bright spot finishing third in team scoring with 11 goals and 18 points in 27 games, as well as leading the Crimson forwards in penalty minutes. Vesey's efforts earned him a nod to the ECAC all-rookie team as well as being named Ivy League rookie of the year. Vesey also experienced team success as a member of gold medal winning Team USA at the 2013 World Junior Championships, where he notched 5 points in 7 games. Vesey is a strong forward with good size and a knack for scoring goals. While it may be a while before he sees any NHL action he has a fairly high offensive ceiling. Donesh Mazloum

 

Fantasy Outlook: C+

 

Vesey is a long term project however he has the size and goal scoring instinct to make an impact in the league. Has added value in PIM leagues.
