Observations:

 

September 2013 - Vey is coming off back to back impressive AHL campaigns with the Manchester Monarchs posting 43 and 67 points, respectively, in his first two professional seasons. Vey led the Monarchs in scoring in 2012-13 and is on the cusp of making the NHL but a stacked depth chart and fierce competition (see Tyler Toffoli) may delay his arrival. The former 100+ point junior scorer is a skilled forward and it appears that he may experience some NHL call-ups as soon as this season. Look for Vey to re-unite with linemates Tanner Pearson and potentially Tyler Toffoli in Manchester to form one of the AHL's top offensive units. Brendan Ross


 

January 2013 - Vey has posted respectable numbers in the AHL with 10 goals and 26 assist for 36 points in 42 games.  He's showing his playmaking abilities and has taken the scoring lead for the Manchester Monarchs.  If he continues to play this well, there's a chance that with the condensed NHL season some guys might get injured and he could be the first to be called up for a short stint to show off his wares. Tim Graveline

 

April 2012 – LA may have gotten one of the best steals from the '09 draft. Linden is smaller but that has not hurt his play at all. Linden left junior hockey as the leading scorer of ALL Canadian Major Junior with 116 PTS in 69 games. He has jumped into a very good AHL program in Manchester and has fit in seamlessly. He has played top six minutes, produced 40 points good for third on the team and has been very responsible in his role, just like in junior He only has four points in 13 games since February, but in February he went on a tear recording 14 points in 12 games with a plus-9. Linden will see another season in Manchester next year, will be looking to add size, professional consistency and drive the offense. Jason Banks

 

Fantasy Outlook:  C+

On the cusp of seeing NHL call-ups and once he arrives in the NHL, fantasy owners should expect modest offensive numbers (35-50 points).
