Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Sid Veysey
Sid Veysey made a good impression on the Vancouver Canuck brass by capturing the Garry F. Longman Memorial Trophy for the league's top rookie in 1976. Veysey, who was a very late draft selection of Vancouver scored 36 goals and 87 points for the Fort Wayne Comets and after putting up 80 points in the Central League during his second season his stock was rising in the Vancouver organization. Veysey's third year of professional saw him back in the CHL, but he did get a one-game try out from the Canucks.

Veysey, a center, was unable to register a point during what proved to be his only NHL game.

In 1978-79, Veysey took his career in another direction by playing Senior hockey in his home province of New Brunswick, then enrolled at the University there the following year. Veysey spent two seasons with the University of New Brunswick, where he was a steady scorer before taking one last crack at professional hockey.

Veysey spent 17 games during the 1981-82 season with the American Hockey League's Fredricton Express and scored 12 points in that time. For his final campaign, he elected to return to Senior hockey and joined the Saint John Gulls.
