Earlier this year, Vey was the highest rated prospect in the Kings system. If he makes the Canucks roster, Vey will be reunited with his former junior coach from the WHL, Willie Desjardins, who just took over behind the bench in Vancouver.
As for the Kings newest prospect, in our 2014 Kings draft preview we listed McKeown as one of just a few players to watch.
One possible target is Kingston defenseman Roland McKeown. Known as a two-way defenseman, McKeown plays a smart game and is a very smooth skater. Ranked anywhere from the late-middle to end of the first round, McKeown is the type of defenseman that the NHL is trending towards – those that can do it all and add versatility to a team’s back end. As an 18-year-old this season, McKeown put up 43 points in 62 regular season games to go with an impressive +38 rating.
