NHL Rumors: Free Agent Jimmy Vesey Meeting With Leafs, Pens, Others On Tuesday


Jimmy Vesey is the talk of the NHL right now.

The reigning Hobey Baker Award winner and former Harvard forward is now an unrestricted free agent after not signing with the Buffalo Sabres — who acquired his rights from the Nashville Predators in June — by the Aug. 15 deadline.

The 23-year-old reportedly has meetings scheduled with several teams Tuesday.

The Chicago Blackhawks, who reportedly don’t have a meeting with Vesey on Tuesday, also are interested in Vesey.

Vesey tallied 46 points (24 goals, 22 assists) in 34 games for the Crimson last season. The North Reading, Mass., native’s agent recently said his client’s decision isn’t going to come before Friday.
