The goal came off of Vey's only shot in the contest, which came on a power play in the first period. Two of his three goals this season have come on the power play. Along with his three goals this season, the 24 year-old has nine assists in 26 games this season.

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.

Linden Vey scored the shootout winner on Friday in a 4-3 win over Detroit.

Vey was recalled earlier in the day from the minors to replace the injured Henrik Sedin. Vey had three goals and 15 points in the AHL in 26 games. He saw a lot of power play time last season at the beginning of the year for the Canucks and they may use him in a similar role this season.

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 has been put on waivers by Vancouver.

The Canucks hope to assign him to the minors, but there's a chance that Vey could be claimed. He registered 10 goals and 24 points in 75 games last season. Vancouver was impressed by Jared McCann and Jake Virtanen at training camp, which bumped Vey from the starting roster.

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.

Linden Vey acknowledged last season was a disappointment.

And it started during the offseason: "My preparation last summerwasn’t what it needed to be. … The season (with the Canucks) didn't gothe way I wanted. I came in with big expectations to put up numbers.It was a big learning curve." Vey had 10 goals and 24 points duringhis first full NHL season. He’s calling this offseason "the biggestsummer of his life." Vey will battle for the third-line center job inVancouver.

Linden Vey will enter training camp vying for the fourth line job at center.

Vey was practically handed a job at center last season but did not have a good year as he eventually moved to the wing and was sometimes a healthy scratch. He ended the season with 10 goals and 24 points in 75 and will have to battle Blair Jones for a spot on the Vancouver roster this season. He saw plenty of time on the power play as he was sixth on the Canucks with 140:11 minutes, picking up four goals and six points.
