The first non-Leaf rookie to record a point last night was former Los Angeles Kings forward Linden Vey. Vey laced up for 15 games with the Kings last season recording 5, before being traded to the Vancouver Canucks for a second round pick at the 2014 draft. The Canucks opened up their season with a 4-2 win and Vey picked up a nice assist on the nice.

Obviously it wasn’t Vey’s first point or game in the NHL but he still counts as a rookie having played less than 25 games in the NHL. Vey was arguably one of the best Canucks players on opening night and hasn’t slowed down since he arrived at Canucks rookie camp. He is a former 4th round pick from the 2009 draft.
