Sabres winger Jimmy Vesey has quickly learned to like what his new city offers, including the easy drive to work.
Vesey, who spent three seasons with the New York Rangers, already knows he can get anywhere in about 15 or 20 minutes.
“There’s a big convenience factor, I think, in terms of commuting and everything like that,” Vesey said prior to Monday afternoon’s 4-0 win over the Dallas Stars. “I’m settling in nice.”
Vesey, 26, said he has “absolutely no complaints” about joining Sabres, who traded the Rangers a 2021 third-round pick on July 1 for him.
“Everything’s been pretty smooth,” he said of his transition. “Everyone here has welcomed me.”
On the ice, however, Vesey has struggled a bit, going pointless in his first six outings entering tonight’s road game against the Anaheim Ducks.
