Jimmy Vesey left this afternoon's contest after taking a skate to the mouth but has now returned.

Kassian accidentally caught Vesey with his skate in the mouth area, forcing the Ranger forward to leave the game to stitch up his cuts. Vesey has now returned sporting a full fish bowl mask to cover his face. The second year forward came into the game with five points in 17 games this season. He shouldn't miss any time but will likely have to play with a full facial protection for the next few games. Video of the incident can be seen by clicking on the link below.

Jimmy Vesey scored two goals in the Rangers' 4-2 win over the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night.

With the game tied at one late in the first period, Vesey managed to find the back of the net twice in 29 seconds to give his team a 3-1 lead going into the intermission. Vesey finished the game with a plus-2 rating, two shots on goal and two hits in 14:28 of ice time. The sophomore forward now has four goals and one assist in 17 games this season. He isn't worth owning in any fantasy format for the time being.

The line of Jimmy Vesey, Kevin Hayes and Jesper Fast has been a bright spot for the Rangers during an otherwise dreadful start to the campaign.

Vesey has two points in 10 games, Hayes has five points, and Fast has two points in five contests, so they haven't stood out offensively. What they have done is shined defensively when paired against the opposition's best players. "That line has been real effective because of the competitiveness and the hard work that they’ve put in," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. "We need that from everybody. Simplify is a word that we have been using. Getting pucks to the net and getting on the right side of their checks, and that line has certainly been doing that for us." Given how happy Vigneault has been with them, it seems fair to believe that the trio will stick together for now.

Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault expects sophomore forward Jimmy Vesey to take the next step this season.

"For me, he’s a gamer. He’s a guy that wants to prove that he can contribute and help a team win," Vigneault said. "And he’s shown leadership qualities in the past and I expect him to be even better this year." The 24-year-old had 16 goals and 11 assists in 80 games during his rookie season. Expect him to improve his offensive output this season, but he likely won't have any fantasy value.

Jimmy Vesey scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's 5-4 OT loss to Ottawa Senators in Game 5.

The Rangers squandered a couple of leads in this game, as they were up 2-0 in the first period and Vesey's goal put them up 4-3 in the third period (he also picked up the only assist on Nick Holden's first-period goal to put the Rangers up by two). It was his first career playoff goal. Former Rangers Derick Brassard tied the game at four with less than 1:30 remaining in regulation to force overtime. In the extra frame, Kyle Turris gave the Sens the win and the lead in the series. Vesey now has five points in 11 games this postseason. The Rangers are now on the brink of elimination, as they trail the best-of-seven series 3-2. Game 6 will be played at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night.

Jimmy Vesey has contributed two assists in seven playoff games.

The 23-year-old rookie had 16 goals and 27 points in 80 games during the 2016-17 campaign. "We want more quality shots and get that second and third whack and get more bodies to the net. Once we get the first goal, we've got to find a way to get a second. We've got a find a way to get a little hungrier," said Vesey. ". . . The last series [against Montreal] was more up and down. This series might have to be more possess the puck in their end and generate chances from there." He has been credited with 10 shots so far in the postseason.

Jimmy Vesey will return to action on Sunday against the Flyers.

After sitting out his first game as a healthy scratch, he'll look to build on the 15 goals and 26 points he's scored through 76 games this season.

Jimmy Vesey will indeed be scratched against the Penguins on Friday.

The rookie winger has posted 15 goals and 26 points along with 60 hits and a 13.6 shooting percentage through the first 76 games of his career.

Jimmy Vesey is projected to be a healthy scratch on Friday.

Rangers coach Alain Vigneault wasn't happy with Vesey's performance on Tuesday. "The thing with Jimmy is that he had been playing some really solid hockey, great energy, was hard on the forecheck. For whatever reason, in San Jose, he had an off night. That’s being very polite, it was a real off night," Vigneault said. "It’s not a big deal. But I’ve got some options right now and I’m looking at those options." Vigneault did add on Thursday that Vesey will still be in the lineup during the playoffs even if he doesn't play on Friday, so this sounds like at most a short-term benching.

Jimmy Vesey scored for the first time in 15 games Saturday.

"I thought we had a good game together," Vesey said. "Obviously it feels good to score, but I think except for the last game [Friday against Florida at the Garden] I’ve been skating well. "I have a different role on this line, but I’m just trying my best to learn and do what I can to help us win." Vesey has 15 goals and 25 points this season but expect more next season.

Jimmy Vesey picked up his 24th point of the season as the Rangers fell 5-2 to the Blue Jackets on Sunday.

It was a beauty of a no-look cross-ice pass to Rick Nash, who did the rest. Vesey has recorded 10 assists on the year through 61 games. All things considered, not too shabby for a rookie.

Jimmy Vesey scored a power play goal in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Islanders.

Vesey's now found the back of the net in consecutive games for the first time since Oct. 30-Nov. 1. His marker in the third period cut the Islanders' lead to 3-2, but that's as close as the Rangers would come to tying it up. Vesey has scored 14 goals and eight assists in 2016-17.
