Yeah I had to double take at reading the announcement. Vesey was deserving of being a finalist, but Connor should have won this thing.

That guy who was famous in Winnipeg that one time.

Connor is a Jets draft pick.

Vesey the Preds but he's opting to become a UFA.

Congrats to Vesey, that's a great accomplishment any way you look at it. 

 

Doesn't necessarily mean he'll compete at the next level, but that's incidental.
