With half a season left, Jimmy Vesey's endurance is being put to the test.
Like many rookies, Vesey is dealing with a tougher schedule than he's faced in the past. He participated in 33 games with Harvard University last season, but he's already appeared in 41 contests with the Rangers in 2016-17 - 49 games if you want to include the preseason action. That steep increase isn't lost on him. "Yeah, I’ve thought about it, I’m just trying to put that one off," Vesey said. "You think about rookie camp and preseason, I’ve played almost 50 games. So I’m on pace for 100. I’ve thought about it, just trying to take it day by day." The 23-year-old forward has 11 goals and 19 points this season. Jan 11 - 4:52 AM

Jimmy Vesey and Mats Zuccarello were the first two shooters in SO overtime and both sunk their pucks as the New York Rangers beat the Nashville Predators 2-1 Saturday night.

This game followed the same pattern as an earlier shootout contest. The Rangers took an early lead with Rick Nash’s first period score and that allowed the ultimately victorious team to play a little more relaxed than the Preds who tied the contest in the second. Notably, the same was true of the Buffalo Sabres vs. Carolina Hurricanes contest. In both games, the first two skaters in the SO were successful denying a third round attempt.

Jimmy Vesey will play in his first game against Nashville when the Predators host the Rangers on Saturday.

Vesey is likely to get booed in Nashville. The Predators were the team that drafted him back in 2012, but Vesey opted to wait for free agency while he played with Harvard University and then signed with the New York Rangers last summer. "Probably going to be the worst of it," Vesey said of the potential fan reaction. "Buffalo wasn’t too bad, but this one is probably a little more magnified. The only thing I can do is block it out and go play. It’s just another game for us. It’s a big two points, and I have to stay focused and just do my job for the team." He has 10 goals and 17 points in 31 contests this season.

Thus ends his illustrious 27-game playing streak dating back to his NHL debut. Okay, it's not quite that dramatic. But this is his first game out. He was seen riding the bike however, so perhaps the injury is not in his hands, wrists or arms.

Jimmy Vesey is projected to play on New York's second power-play unit Saturday night.

"He's going to play little bit of net-front and a little bit of beside the net there, so we can have a little different look," coach Alain Vigneault said. The second unit also features Mats Zuccarello, Pavel Buchnevich, Mika Zibanejad and Brady Skjei. Vesey, who was recently moved to a line with Kevin Hayes and J.T. Miller, has been benched in the third period twice in the past week, but he isn't bothered by the decision. He feels like the coaches still have confidence in him because he is back on the power play.
