Hockey is the most popular sport in North America and Central and Western Europe. The most prestigious hockey league is the NHL, in which the best teams from the USA and Canada play. Spectators are attracted by the entertainment and high performance of fights, and power moves and fighting on the ice only fuel the interest of fans.
Jimmy Vesey is known as an ice hockey attacker in the NHL. In October 2022, Jimmy signed a one-year deal with the Rangers hockey team. Previously, the American was on trial in a team from New York, for which he had already played from 2016 to 2019.
Then the striker moved to the Rangers after receiving the Hobie Baker prize as the best player in US student hockey.
Last season, Vesey played for New Jersey (salary – 800,000) and scored 16 (8 + 8) points with minus 24 utility in 68 NHL championship games.
New opportunities for Vesey
Jimmy’s salary is valued at $750,000 and his cap hit is $750,000 for the 2022-23 season. During his career, he signed 6 contracts totaling $16,150,000. These sums are worth of athlete’s talents!
Vesey will become UFA at the end of the 2024-25 season when he will be 32 years old.
The hockey player is currently in his second stint with the Rangers organization, having been hired as a free agent last October. Since their first season, they have made eleven appearances in the Stanley Cup Finals, winning in 1928, 1933, 1940, and 1994.
Despite these four victories, the Rangers are the least successful franchise of the original six teams.
