Kevin Hayes scored the only goal for either team in a 1-0 win by the New York Rangers over Calgary Tuesday night.

Hayes has been a pleasant surprise for the Blueshirts of late with five goals in his past eight outings. His playing time isn't guaranteed at this time, but the first round pick certainly has the potential to keep up his pace.

Kevin Hayes scored for the third game in a row during the Rangers’ 5-1 victory over the Coyotes on Saturday night.

The Rangers scored four unanswered goals in the third period. The 22-year-old rookie is playing the best hockey of the season, converting on the shorthanded goal to give his team a 3-1 advantage. Hayes has points in five consecutive games as well, to give him 10 goals and 25 points in 51 games. Chris Kreider, Rick Nash, Marc Staal and Lee Stempniak picked up the other markers. Derek Stepan and Kevin Klein each assisted twice.

Kevin Hayes recorded his first career multi-point game with a goal and two assists in the Rangers' 6-3 win over the Avalanche on Thursday night.

Hayes made his presence known during his 13:02 of ice time with a block, three shots, while wining half his draws, and the aforementioned points. Hayes made a deft pass to a streaking Dan Boyle to open the scoring late in the first, and walked around the Avs' defense to slam one home himself just 1:47 into the second. The rookie centerman now has nine goals and 24 points through his first 50 games.

Kevin Hayes lit the lamp in the Rangers' shootout loss to Colorado on Thursday night, making it three straight games with a point for the rookie.

Hayes now has two goals and five points in 13 games so far to kick off his NHL career. The 22-year-old Boston native has received over 10 minutes of ice time in each of the three games during his points streak, while he failed to break the 10 minute mark in three of the four games before the streak. It seems Rangers coach Alain Vigneault is starting to build trust in the youngster.

Kevin Hayes registered an assist in a 3-1 loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday.

Kevin Hayes will be back in the Rangers lineup Saturday after being a healthy scratch on Monday.

With the imminent return of Derek Stepan, Hayes' role with the Rangers could be in doubt as he was seeing some time on the first line with Rick Nash and Chris Kreider, but that is the spot that Stepan will get back once he returns which should be during the upcoming week. Hayes could see time on the fourth line and he'll likely line up there tonight. He should split time on the fourth line with Chris Mueller in the short term.

Kevin Hayes is enjoying his time on the first line with Rick Nash and Chris Kreider.

The move was made in the third period against Carolina on Thursday and the trio will at least start Sunday's game together. "Playing with two guys like this is pretty unbelievable," Hayes said. "With their speed and their size, we should be able to control down low and hold onto the puck and get some good scoring opportunities." Hayes will lose the spot when Derek Stepan returns from injury which could be as early as November 3 but he will learn a lot in the meantime. He is pointless in three games with a minus-three rating.

The New York Rangers need to get Kevin Hayes into the lineup or send him to the minors.

It is not doing the youngster any good to be sitting in the press box as he has been taken off injured reserve after injuring his shoulder. "Obviously we’re going to have to make a decision with him, a young player that needs to play," coach Alain Vigneault said. "We start with four game in six nights, but we do need to make a decision on him, whether it’s to play here or in [AHL] Hartford. He did have a good camp, so I’d like to see what he can do in the NHL. "Based on our early schedule I would say sometime next week we’re going to decide what we’re going to do."

Kevin Hayes (shoulder) may be cleared to return for Saturday's game versus Columbus.

He might get medical clearance on Friday and will start the year on non-roster injured reserve. When he returns the Rangers might use him in the middle, as they are hurting for centers and he played there for most of training camp.

Kevin Hayes has a shoulder injury, which could have him start the season on injured reserve.

If Hayes isn't put on the team's IR then Chris Mueller, who was placed on waivers Monday, could be demoted if he clears to get the Rangers down to a 23-man roster. Consider Hayes day-to-day for the time being.

The injury to Derek Stepan could mean that Kevin Hayes cracks the lineup out of training camp as a winger.

The 22-year-old former first round pick of the Chicago Blackhawks could return to his roots over the last two seasons as a right winger after playing most of training camp in the middle. "I want to see him on the right side also," coach Alain Vigneault said. "For a player coming in, playing defense and playing center are challenging positions. So far, what I've seen from Hayes, I've liked. I've seen a lot of upside. But from talking to him briefly and having [associate coach Scott Arniel] talk to him a little bit more at length, we know he's more comfortable at wing, so I think at some point here as we move forward, we’re probably going to try him there." Stay tuned.
