Kevin Hayes found the back of the net in a 6-3 loss to Chicago on Wednesday.
It was Hayes' first goal since Oct. 21. He has four goals and eight points in 19 games, which is below what we would hope for from him. That being said, we don't still expect that he'll pick up the pace somewhat as the campaign progresses. Nov 16 - 7:34 AM

Kevin Hayes received a $5,000 fine from the NHL for his actions during Thursday's contest.

Hayes and Steven Stamkos were both squirting water at their respective opponents early in the third period and things escalated from there. Hayes didn't receive a penalty during the game itself, but J.T. Brown fought Steven Kampfer while Alex Killorn got a slashing penalty as a result of the incident.

Kevin Hayes picked up a goal and an assist in a 4-2 win over the Nashville Predators on Saturday.

Hayes made a great move, going around Matt Irwin like he wasn't there before roofing the puck passed Saros to give the Rangers a 3-1 lead midway through the 2nd period. Hayes is now up to five points in nine games this season and might be worth picking up if he continues his strong play.

Kevin Hayes scored a goal in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

He pounced on a giveaway in the neutral zone before beating Sergei Bobrovsky. Hayes opened the scoring at the 14:35 mark of the first period, but the Blue Jackets ended up scoring the next three goals. The tally was Hayes' first goal of the 2017-18 regular season. He's up to one goal and one assist in five games this season.

The New York Rangers are confident that Kevin Hayes can be their second line center this season.

New York traded Derek Stepan to Arizona this offseason, so they'll need someone to play behind Mika Zibanejad. "I have a tremendous amount of faith in [Hayes]," head coach Alain Vigneault said. "If we made that trade, it’s because we had faith in him and Mika [Zibanejad] who are the next guys slotted in." The 25-year-old had 17 goals and 49 points in 76 games last season.

Kevin Hayes could center New York's second line in 2017-18.

That could place him between Rick Nash and J.T. Miller. Mika Zibanejad, who just received a five-year, $26.75 million contract on Tuesday, is slated to be the top-line pivot of the Rangers. Hayes had 17 goals and a personal best 49 points in 76 games last season. He should be able to cross the 50-point barrier this campaign.

The Rangers will be in the market for a center this off-season.

New York has Kevin Hayes and Mika Zibanejad as their most experienced players in the middle following the trade of Derek Stepan. The deal severely cuts into their depth at the position, but the team feels the holes can be filled via free agency or trades. It seems like Hayes and Zibanejad could be primed for larger roles in 2017-18 depending on who the Rangers add to the roster.

Kevin Hayes has two goals and two assists in two appearances with the U.S. at the World Hockey Championship.

He found the back of the net two times in Tuesday's 5-3 win over Russia. Brock Nelson had one goal and two assists in the contest, while Dylan Larkin had a marker and a helper. Johnny Gaudreau had two assists in the win. It's been a great tournament for all of them and their efforts helped Team USA secure first place in Group A.
May 16 - 6:58 PM

Kevin Hayes will play for Team USA at the World Hockey Championship.

He will join the team now that the Rangers have been eliminated from the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Hayes posted just three assists in 12 postseason outings after he had 17 goals and 49 points in 76 matches during the regular season.

Kevin Hayes picked up his first point of the playoffs on Saturday.

Hayes had a nice regular season with 17 goals and 49 points but was pointless in his first five games of the post-season before his assist on the winning goal by Mats Zuccarello. If you took him in a playoff pool you have to be happy with the point and the Rangers moving on to the second round.
Apr 23 - 10:15 AM

Kevin Hayes scored once and assisted on another in the Rangers 3-2 win Monday.

The 24-year-old potted his 15th of the season and now has 42 points, six more than last seasons. He is only three behind his career mark set in the 2014-15 season and has been particularly hot of late with two goals and seven points in his last four games. He is a nice pickup in most leagues if available, at this time.

Kevin Hayes registered three assists in a 4-3 win over Nashville on Thursday.

Hayes had 45 points as a rookie, but he regressed last season to 14 goals and 36 points in 79 games. This season he's bouncing back in a big way with 13 goals and 36 points in 48 contests. He's been playing with J.T. Miller and Michael Grabner on a line that has been working well for the trio.

Kevin Hayes (lower body) is listed as a game-time decision Tuesday against Anaheim.

However, coach Alain Vigneault thinks that Hayes will be fine to play. It sounds safe to activate him if you normally would. Hayes has 13 goals and 35 points in 47 games this year.
Feb 7 - 11:51 AM

Kevin Hayes feels ready to return from a lower-body injury.

Coach Alain Vigneault also expects Hayes to be back Tuesday barring a setback at the morning skate. Look for the Rangers to make his activation official before taking on the Ducks.
