Linden Vey's former WHL coach, Shaun Clouston, believes the former Kings forward can be a top-six skater in the NHL.
"He can score goals, but he can also really create offensive chances through his puck possession by drawing attention and finding the open man," said Clouston. That is why he may be better suited for center than on the wing, but he has played both positions before. Vey could start the season as Vancouver's third-line center and he has the talent to help out the power play as well. He might be worth looking at heading into the 2014-15 season if he impresses at training camp. Aug 8 - 4:54 PM

Linden Vey, acquired at the 2014 NHL Entry Draft from the Los Angeles Kings for the 50th pick the Canucks got for defenseman Jason Garrison, should be Vancouver's No. 3 center next season.

The Canucks have signed the restricted free agent to a one-year contract. Canucks general manager Jim Benning said he knew plenty about Vey from his time living in Boston while the 22-year-old played for the AHL's Manchester Monarchs. Vey also played for new coach Willie Desjardins with the WHL's Medicine Hat Tigers. "There's a familiarity with Linden," Benning said. "He's a puck-possession guy, he's strong, he's a good two-way player, he plays a 200-foot game. He's ready to play in the NHL now." Vey only has 18 games of NHL experience due in part to the Stanley Cup-champion Kings' depth of young forwards. Benning said he'll get more opportunity in Vancouver.
