6/16/18 |Jeff Gorton told the Boston Globe that Jimmy Vesey needed a bit of a "fresh start" and one of the players that Gorton thinks David Quinn will help.
Gorton said that Vesey needs an "opportunity to play a little more and show what he has . . . so I will be curious to see how David will help Jimmy." (Boston Globe)
Gorton said that it was an "obvious choice" for the team to hire David Quinn because of his past coaching at different levels and developing players.
Vesey is an RFA, with arbitration rights, on July 1.
Alain Vigneault said at the end of this past season that Vesey needed to find his identity as a player.
In Vesey's time at Harvard, he had 4 goals and 5 assists in five games against Quinn's BU teams.
