Linden Vey notched a goal, but Vancouver came up short in its 3-2 loss to the Flames on Saturday night.
The 23-year-old has points in four of his past five games, with two goals in that span. However, we would caution at getting too excited: he has just two shots on goal in those games. Altogether, Vey has nine goals and 21 points. Ronalds Kenins also got a goal. Bo Horvat, Chris Higgins and Jannik Hansen chipped in with the assists. Feb 15 - 1:11 AM

Linden Vey and Frank Corrado are expected to be healthy scratches on Saturday night against the Flames.

Little surprise Vey is being sat as he has just three goals and six points since American Thanksgiving, and seven goals and 15 points on the season. Not exactly the production level Vancouver envisioned when they acquired him for a second round draft pick over the summer. Corrado has yet to appear in an NHL game this season, but has eight points and 17 PIMs from the blue-line for AHL Utica.

Linden Vey scored the game-winning goal in a 3-2 victory on Tuesday.

Vey was playing on Vancouver's second line because Radim Vrbata was absent due to the flu. Vey has seven goals and 15 points in 35 contests in 2014-15.
Jan 7 - 9:27 AM

Linden Vey will get into Vancouver's lineup on Tuesday night versus the Islanders and likely start on the second line.

Vey got in because Radim Vrbata was a late scratch due to sickness. He will get a shot to start on the second line with Nick Bonino and Chris Higgins.
Jan 6 - 9:53 PM

Look for Linden Vey to be a healthy scratch on Saturday.

Vey has not managed to score in his last 12 games so to take him out of the lineup is not surprising. He has six goals and 14 points in 34 games and while he was effective on the power play early in the season, he has not been of late.
Jan 3 - 10:51 AM

With Zack Kassian on the shelf, Linden Vey gets another look at right wing.

It looks like Vey may line up with Shawn Matthias and Brad Richardson. Vey has six goals and six assists for 12 points in 24 games this season. The bounces have been going his way, as his six goals have come on just 20 SOG (a shooting percentage of 30).

Linden Vey scored two goals and one assist in Vancouver's 5-3 loss to Detroit on Sunday.

The 23-year-old hasn't scored since November 1st against Edmonton. Vey's first goal cut Detroit's lead to 2-1, and his third period goal cut the Wings' lead to 4-3. Vey isn't the most gifted player offensively, but he is on pace to score over 20 goals and 40 points. Shawn Matthias also scored for Vancouver.

Linden Vey is expected to play Friday after he was scratched on Tuesday.

Coach Willie Desjardins believes that Vey will make a good NHL centerman one day, but for now he'll have to play on the wing to get into the lineup. He's expected to play on the top power-play unit with Zack Kassian injured, which is a great opportunity for him to show he deserves to be more than the team's 13th forward. Vey has nine points in 20 games this year.

Linden Vey will get back into Vancouver's lineup on Thursday night.

He was a healthy scratch on Wednesday. Bo Horvat will probably head to the press box in his place. Vey has four goals and nine points in 18 games this season.

Linden Vey will watch from the seats Wednesday evening.

Vey will be a healthy scratch for the first time all year tonight when Vancouver takes on the Edmonton Oilers. The young and talented forward will give way to Zack Kassian, who is retuning to the Canucks lineup after missing five games with a knee injury. Vey still has a lot of time to right the ship and hopefully this benching will just be a reality check.

Linden Vey scored his first even strength goal of the season on Saturday.

Vey is getting fourth line minutes five-on-five but is seeing first power play time and now has four goals with three coming on the power play. He has six points this season in 11 games.
Sun, Nov 2, 2014 09:03:00 AM

Linden Vey scored a goal in Vancouver's 4-1 win over Carolina on Tuesday.

Linden Vey scored his second of the season in St. Louis on Thursday night, helping Vancouver to a 4-1 win.

Vey has been seeing first unit powerplay time and made great use of it by staying in the slot and ripping home a one-timer, making it 3-1 in the third. He played nearly 13:34 with 1:26 on the PP. The Canucks only had two extra-man advantages. He also won 56% of his faceoffs.

Linden Vey is seeing time on the first power play.

The Canucks are going with four forwards and he is playing with the Sedin twins and Radim Vrbata. Vey was acquired from the Kings for a second round pick at the 2014 Draft and it looks like the Canucks did okay for themselves with the deal.

Linden Vey pounded in a rebound for a powerplay goal to put the Canucks up 1-0 midway through the game, Friday night. They went on to win 3-0 over Calgary.

The Sedins controlled play by the Flames goal line until the cycled the puck back to Chris Tanev at the point who one-timed it on net, where Vey then put in the rebound. He finished the game with 16:22 of ice time, including 5:24 with the man advantage and 1:48 on the kill. Vey now has a goal and two assists this preseason.
