If you travel back to the spring of 2016 there was a name on the tip of everyone’s tongue, and it was Jimmy Vesey. The star NCAA player wasn’t interested in playing in Nashville and was going to hit free agency. The Leafs were interested and just so happened to employee his Dad and have his brother as a prospect in the system. In case you don’t remember, the Rangers ended up landing Vesey, and Jimmy didn’t exactly go onto the stellar career that was promised. Fast forward to today…
We’ve signed Jimmy Vesey to a one-year contract! #LeafsForever

Vesey is finally ours. For one year. At low, low price of $900k.
