Linden Vey's father will go on trial on May 24 on the charge of conspiracy to murder his wife.

Vey's father Curtis was charged in 2013, but this story hadn't gotten public attention until now. Linden Vey comes from a town of less than 1,000 people. "It's a tough situation for me," Vey said. "Sometimes, when you have something like that weighing on your mind, it's tough to be super focused. But I do have a great family and support system. I try not to focus on it too much. Any time it's a family matter, you try to keep it as private as you can. Everybody has something to go through. Life is never easy." While this has all been happening, Vey has been trying to establish himself in the NHL. In 2015-16, Vey had four goals and 15 points in 41 contests with Vancouver while also spending some time in the minors.

Mar 2 - 12:08 PM

Linden Vey returned to the Canucks' lineup during Thursday's 5-3 win over Ottawa, and picked up a pair of helpers.

Vey hasn't seen a whole lot of time with Vancouver this season, just 24 games, but he's done a good job filling the net. Or helping to, anyway. Vey has nine assists and 11 points so far this season, raising hope that the youngster can find his way yet with the big boys.

Linden Vey is scratched with an undisclosed injury for Friday's match with Calgary.

It looks like Linden Vey is sticking with the Canucks even though centers Henrik Sedin and Brandon Sutter are healthy.

Vey even managed to log 16:18 minutes Thursday night, so Vancouver's relative help hasn't forced him into a minimal role. Of course, it helps that Vey has been playing well lately and found the back of the net on Thursday. "I thought that was probably the best game I’ve seen him play in a Canucks uniform (Thursday night)," Canucks coach Willie Desjardins said. "I thought he made lots of good, little plays that didn’t turn into goals, but were good plays." He's worth keeping an eye on, although Vey's fantasy value will likely be limited this season.
Feb 6 - 5:19 AM

Linden Vey will make his season's debut while centering Vancouver's fourth line in Friday's match with Detroit.

Vey popped in 10 goals and 24 points last season over 74 games for Vancouver, but has spent this season with AHL Utica where he posted three goals and 15 points over 26 games. With Brandon Prust and Derek Dorsett flanking him, Vey could be a nice short term boon for any poolie in a reverse league.

Linden Vey has been called up by the Vancouver Canucks.

The Canucks lost Henrik Sedin to a lower-body injury on Thursday and they were already missing Brandon Sutter, so they naturally needed some help. Vey has three goals and 15 points in 26 AHL contests in 2015-16.

Linden Vey, who stands at 6-foot-0, has gone from being 187 pounds to about 200.

Vey wasn't happy with how his 2014-15 campaign went and in particular, he struggled to maintain possession of the puck. "I put on a lot of muscle and I think it has helped me be able to play my game more, where I can hang onto pucks and hold off defenders," Vey said. He had 10 goals and 24 points in 75 contests last season, but he was close to a point-per-game player in the minors in 2012-13 and 2013-14.
