Linden Vey Re-Signs

A cheap third/fourth line option but can Vey provide more?

Via the mothership:

Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning announced today that the Canucks have re-signed right wing Linden Vey.

Vey, 23, appeared in his first season with the Canucks in 2014.15, collecting 24 points (10-14-24) and 18 penalty minutes in 75 games. He finished the season ranked tied for 15th among rookies in points (24), tied for sixth in power play goals (4), tied for 18th in assists (14), tied for 20th in goals (10) and played one postseason game.

Vey's first season with Vancouver was a mixed bag, but with the team up against the cap and the idea that Bo Horvat will get a shot at securing the 2LC, Vey makes sense (re: cheap!) as a bottom six option. He has a history with WD as coach and the organization surely is hoping he can mature/evolve his game (or maybe just pack on some muscle) next season in what is shaping up - as you can see below - to be an important bounce-back campaign.
