He committed to playing college hockey at Harvard in either 2012-13 or 2013-14. Vesey was ranked 150th amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting's final rankings but was not selected in his first year of eligibility for the NHL Draft.
2011-12: Vesey played for the South Shore Kings in the Eastern Junior Hockey League, foregoing his senior season at Belmont Hill, and was the league's leading scorer and Most Valuable Player. In 45 games he scored 48 goals with 43 assists. In six playoff games he scored 5 goals with 3 assists and had 2 penalty minutes. South Shore reached the playoff semifinals after finishing in first in the Southern Division in the regular season. Vesey was invited to the NHL Draft Combine and was ranked 77th amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting's final rankings prior to the 2012 NHL Draft.
Vesey is a big winger who has the ability to become an effective power forward in the pro game. He is more than just an up-and-down player as he possesses skill and smarts that make him a dangerous player in the offensive zone. Vesey doesn't shy away from the physical game but he could still use some improvement in that area, while also needing to work on his defensive zone coverage.
Vesey will play his freshman year at NCAA level for Harvard University and the talented forward is expected to help the Crimson's offensive game this season. He has at least four years of development in ECAC but it wouldn't be a surprise if the big forward left early to pursue an NHL career like his father.
