VANCOUVER — The Vancouver Canucks have claimed winger Jimmy Vesey off waivers from the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The 27-year-old Vesey has five goals and two assists in 30 games with Toronto this season.
Vasey signed a one-year, US$900,000 deal with the Leafs prior to the season.
The American spent last season with Buffalo after the Sabres acquired him in a trade with the New York Rangers, where Vesey started his NHL career in 2016.
The Canucks say Vesey is expected to join the team Wednesday in Ottawa.
