A little highlight video on Vescy
http://svse.edgeboss.net/wmedia/svse...light_2_12.wvx
Best way to describe him is that he's a "right place at the right time" kind of player. I think he's tied the AHL record for most OT goals in a season - and there's plenty of season left.
There's a AHL Live video where they had him mic'd vs. Norfolk...

Go to VOD, and then page 2.

I see that he can score empty net goals, Grier needs to watch his back

When did he go in the draft and how long has he played in the AHL? Is he a career minor leaguer is pretty much what I am asking

I'll do you one better. 5'9" (generous) 155, 12+ NHL seasons. He's really tiny...

I stand corrected. Touche.

I like his attitude, as I watched his play on mic. However, is really that good? I am happy for the guy. But it is hard for me to visualize him taking a spot

I've seen players that were 6'5" 230 that were too small to play in the NHL...sometimes size is relative (which is why the same four or five guys always get mentioned when someone says a player is too small to play in the NHL. )

Too small to play in the NHL? That's a load of crap. There isn't size requirement to qualify playing in the NHL. Haven't we been proven otherwise by many players over the years. And more so in the post-lockout NHL.

Vesce missed the first game of his American Hockey League career last night because he was flying west to San Jose, where he is scheduled to make his National Hockey League debut with the Sharks, who play host to the Blackhawks tonight.

I may be the only one that thinks this, but I think he can make a impact on the Team, similar to Pavelski but a different skill set

Gerbs will not only make the NHL, he will be a very productive offensive weapon, possibly a star. Keep your eyes on this one, he has been pure joy to watch everytime I have had a chance to see him, be it college or WJC.

Hopefully. Obviously I love where the team is at, but I would like to see more points coming from the bottom 6. I know things will get better when Mitchell and Roenick come back, but more depth could never be a problem. The guy is clearly a playmaker and I hope that results in getting some more goals from those lines.

Anywho, congrats to Ryan Vesce on his NHL debut Kick some ass!

Also, this guy is pretty small and having a decent NHL career.
I lol at you if you believe the height listed.

From an organization standpoint, this is a very good move. The 1st 2 years the players in Worcester felt they had no shot at being called up (if they felt they earned it), and SJ wasn't interested in looking at ways to bring them up even if it were for a game. We had players like Darche and Mink that deserved being called up. But players (like Mink) last year kind of got 'the attitude' of 'why bother'.
Brining up guys like Moore and Vescy for example show that SJ cares and is involved in the goings on in Worcester. Much like last year we could have used call ups from our ECHL affiliates, but barely used them. This year, we are.

I also think it helps that the SJ Sharks hold down the No.1 spot in the West, with a 10pt cushion at the end of January. They can afford to take chances with little consequence. And of course it's beneficial to the SJ Sharks to know who they can count on down on the farm when the 2nd season rolls around.

ClicheGuevara, I agree with you about 5'11"

I swear they sometimes include skates when they record height because I've stood alongside some of these guys and they've got to be an inch or two shorter than what's listed. For example, Mark Smith is listed 5'10" - maybe with a mohawk...5'8" tops
