LA Kings Linden Vey On His NHL Debut: â€œIâ€™ve Never Had So Many Text Messagesâ€
"It's everything you said it would be and a lot more".
We should be excited about this kid. He may turn out to be the
equal of Toffoli, albeit a diff style of player.
If Vey can take over the 4th line spot, he could turn
the likes of Jordan Nolan and Dan Carcillo
into 10-goal guys, as well as strengthen
both our PP and PK.
He could also do spot duty
on the top 6 to give Kopi & Richards needed rest
at opportune times, or to give us a different look up front
against a certain opponent, etc
It was good to see him get knocked down 2-3 times in a
relatively few seconds, and keep popping right back up and staying with the action.
He made a great move and a sweet pass on the Jordan Nolan goal.
He may have even had a couple takeaways tonight (somebody else can confirm that, perhaps?).
We know the kid has the skill/skating pkg.
Vey's defensive game (and physical durability) is key.
If he can check/disrupt opposing offensive players effectively, and
continue to show defensive growth at this level,
the kid is in.
And it will be...
Colin Fraser & __ for a pick.
