New York Rangers: Traverse City Players To Watch

Jimmy Vesey, Left Wing

Jimmy Vesey may be the most popular Ranger as of right now.

All of the heat surrounding who Vesey was going to sign with ended when he signed with the Blueshirts.

But now it is time to be serious.

Vesey is a Ranger and this is his first chance to make a huge splash at Traverse City.

The Harvard graduate had good years in the NCAA, playing in at least 27 games every season while putting up impressive point totals seasonally.

His freshman year at Harvard included 11 goals and seven assists. From there, it has been nothing but an easy uphill climb.

The 2014-15 season ended up being Vesey’s best collegiate season by far. He finished with 32 goals and 26 assists in only 37 games played.

Not to mention he is also the Hobey Baker Award winner, which is the award given to the best player in all of college hockey. The 66th overall pick in the 2012 draft belonged to Nashville, but now Vesey is in New York. Fans are very excited to see how he performs on Broadway.

I love watching sports, specifically teams in New York. I'll root for all New York teams, but the New York Rangers and hockey are my number one. I am an avid hockey fan and enjoy expressing my opinion on the Blueshirts, when they are playing good and bad.
