Jimmy Vesey comments on meeting with Sabres

Vesey remains adamant he will not sign with a team before August 15th.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The latest chapter in the hunt for Jimmy Vesey is an interview the Hobey Baker Award Winner did with Comcast New England on Wednesday night. It was the first time Vesey has commented since his meeting with the Buffalo Sabres, who own the rights to speak with him until August 15th.

“I think it was a good meeting to get a feel for what the process is going to be like,” Vesey said. “We are going to August 15th like I have said all along. But, to talk to a GM and a coach is going to give me an idea of what to expect August 15th.”

While Vesey remains adamant that he will not choose a team to sign with before August 15th, when he becomes an unrestricted free agent, he seems happy how Buffalo has handled their chance to win him over before anyone else.

“They have been really good with me thought out  the process and they wouldn’t create a circus. They are going to leave me alone now so, I have respected Buffalo throughout the whole thing.”
