“[Defensive play] was one thing the coaching staff stressed to me that I have to work on if I want to play more minutes,” Vey noted. “It’s a big part of the game, especially in the Kings organization. They like to be defensively sound, so I’ve been working on that in the first half. It’s getting better, and now, I’m starting to get a little bit more ice time.”
But the bigger issue for him is getting stronger, something he did not pay close attention to until after his third season with the Calgary Hitmen.
You'll hate me for this, but Vey played for the Medicine Hat Tigers. It was Kozun who played for the Hitmen.
