Vey was eligible to become a restricted free agent after completing a one-year, two-way deal that was worth $735K at the NHL level.
The 23-year-old forward was taken in the fourth round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft by the Los Angeles Kings. After a few strong seasons in the minors and a promising 10-game showing with the Kings, he was shipped to Vancouver last summer in exchange for a second round selection.
With the Canucks he scored 10 goals and 24 points in 75 contests while averaging 13:10 minutes per game in 2014-15. He only dressed in one game during Vancouver’s 2015 playoff series against Calgary though.
