Kings prospect watch: center Linden Vey

Linden Vey skated with the Manchester (N.H.) Monarchs of the American Hockey League last season and created magic with Tanner Pearson and Tyler Toffoli. Or, he did until Toffoli earned a promotion to the Kings near the end of the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season. Now the they are together again, with Vey centering the wingers at times during the Kings’ training camp. Vey had 22 goals and 45 assists last season with Manchester. He’d like to duplicate that success this season with the Kings, but he’s also realistic. The Kings are deep at the center position and Vey is waiting for a chance to shine in the NHL. He hopes it happens with Pearson and Toffoli skating with him. “When you play with guys for as long as we have and had the season we had … it makes things easier,” Vey said. “We bring different things to the line and we feed off each other.”
