Nashville Predators Jimmy Vesey Watch, Part 2

The Nashville Predators and their fans watched Jimmy Vesey’s Harvard team advance in the ECAC Playoffs last weekend.

Vesey is currently a draft pick of the Predators and has the chance to join them once his team is eliminated from Post-Season play. In our article, “Nashville Predators Waiting for Jimmy Vesey“, we answered a lot of questions as to the hows and whys of Vesey playing for the Preds.

Last weekend Vesey and the Crimson squad of Harvard beat Rensselaer Poly in two straight games to move to the Semi-Finals of the ECAC on Friday. Harvard, the three-seed, will face four-seed St. Lawrence in the second semifinal contest because number two-seed Yale was upset by the seven, Dartmouth.  Harvard beat St. Lawrence in their only meeting this season 3-2.

The winner of the Harvard-St.Lawrence game on Friday will play the winner between Quinnipiac and Dartmouth in the championship game on Saturday evening. Regardless of how they do now, Harvard is almost assured of a spot in the regional tournament to find the Frozen Four. Those teams are announced on March 20th.

The Regional Championships take place on the weekend of March 25th -27th at four locations. The four winners go to Tampa for the Frozen Four on April 7th and 9th.  Somewhere in there, Harvard will finish their season and Vesey will have to decide to join the Predators or wait until after August 15th for Free Agency.
