The reigning Hobey Baker award winner Jimmy Vesey has left the door open to join the Boston Bruins this summer.

The Harvard forward told the Boston Herald that the Bs will be on the list of teams he would be open to consider signing with when he’s able to talk with teams on August 15th, the day he becomes an unrestricted free agent.

The 22-year-old Vesey scored 24 goals and had 22 assists in 33 contests for Harvard in his senior season.  He was drafted in the third round of the 2012 draft by the Nashville Predators and said he will not sign with the team despite the Preds’ best efforts last off-season.

Vesey said he hopes to make a decision soon after the August 15th deadline and mentioned that he was a big fan of the Bruins growing up.  His father Jim briefly played for the Bruins during his NHL run and his brother Nolan currently plays for the University of Maine.
