Vecchione, a Hobey Baker finalist tallied 29 goals and 34 assists for 63 points for the Union College Dutchmen this season. His 63 points tied him for most in NCAA Division 1 hockey.

The Saugus, Massachusetts native led to the Dutchmen to the NCAA Tournament this season and was named 2016-2017 ECAC Player Of the Year.

Vecchione is also Union's all-time leading scorer with a 176 points.

This wasn't a shock that Vecchione signed with the Flyers considering his former Union teammate  and current Flyer star, Shayne Gostisbehere has been hinting that he'd like him to join the Flyers. Also, the agency that represents Vecchione, Sports Professional Management has Flyer ties as Flyer great John LeClair is one of their agents and is a friend of Vecchione's agent Mark Toof.
