Check off another RFA. Jimmy Vesey has re-signed with the Rangers on a two-year contract with a cap hit of $2.275 million. Vesey will be a UFA at the end of the contract, but regardless a short term deal made sense for Vesey. In two years with the Rangers, Vesey has put up 33 goals and 22 assists, split almost evenly through both seasons.
Vesey on a short term deal is ideal, since his peak is likely a bottom-six forward. He has a nose for the net, and is a very useful player. His work ethic has made him a fan favorite as well. This is a very good deal for the team and for Vesey.
