Jimmy Hayes won this battle over brother Kevin Hayes, although Jimmy probably would've preferred his Panthers not to lose 5-2 to the Rangers.

Jimmy Hayes was all alone in the slot midway through the third when Aleksander Barkov fell and took out Rick Nash in a slew-foot like fashion. Hayes made no mistake and made it 3-2 with a power play goal. It was a big moment as the Cats had been down 3-0. In addition, Jimmy out hit Kevin 7-2 on 2:31 more ice time.

Jimmy Hayes delivered two goals in the Florida Panthers' thrilling, 4-3 shootout victory over the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins Monday night.

Hayes is having a nice season and now has nine goals. He also was a plus-3 on the night. Hayes also was instrumental in a goal by teammate Jussi Jokinen. He didn't get an assist but he did attract attention from the Penguins and opened up space for Jokinen, who scored his fourth goal of the season. Aleksander Barkov scored the game-winning goal for the Panthers in the seventh round of the shootout. Sean Bergenheim had a first-rate night for the Panthers in this one, notching two assists, two hits and three shots on net.

Jimmy Hayes and Brandon Pirri will sit Saturday night against the Penguins.

Jimmy Hayes registered a goal and a helper in Florida's 4-3 victory against Detroit on Tuesday.

He combined with Vincent Trocheck on both of his points. Hayes has six goals and 12 points, along with 41 shots, in 16 games. The towering forward is developing a rhythm with the Panthers and he's worth keeping an eye on.

Panther forward Jimmy Hayes scored the winning goal in a 3-2 victory over the Senators Friday night.

It was a nice bounce-back game after Hayes was a healthy scratch against the Hurricanes Wednesday night. Hayes now has five goals and 10 points in 14 contests and is quietly becoming fantasy relevant.

Jimmy Hayes appears as though he'll be a healthy scratch on Wednesday.

He was the last one on the ice at the morning skate, as he was doing extra work. Vincent Trocheck and Tomas Fleischmann could return from the press box after they were scratched on Monday.
Wed, Nov 26, 2014 04:48:00 PM

Jimmy Hayes picked up a goal and an assist in the Panthers' 5-2 loss to the Kings on Tuesday.

The former Blackhawk started an ultimately short and failed rally for the Panthers in the third period, scoring and setting up another to make it 4-2 before the Kings put it away late. Very impressively, Hayes has now picked up a goal in four of his last five games and has registered six points over that stretch. He has eight points in 10 games played this season to go with a plus-five rating. Jussi Jokinen scored the other goal for the Panthers.

Jimmy Hayes scored a goal and an assist in Florida's 4-3 shootout loss to the Islanders on Friday.

Hayes opened the scoring in the first period. The young forward has collected a point in five of his last six games since being reinserted into the Panthers' lineup. The 24-year old averages less than 13:00 of ice-time per game, so he isn't a good bet to keep producing offensively. He has six points in eight games this season.

Jimmy Hayes has registered two goals and two assists in his past five games.

He has suited up in just seven matches this season, but he's making the most of his opportunities right now which could allow him to stay in the fold once the Panthers get healthier.

Jimmy Hayes replaced Shawn Thornton in the lineup in Monday's 1-0 loss to Ottawa.

In his first action of the regular season, Hayes recorded a team-high four shots in just 8:33 of ice time. Hayes may have earned himself another look and more playing time when Florida plays on Friday in Buffalo. "He was strong; he drove down the rink; he played real hard and that's what we need," coach Gerard Gallant said. "We'll look at the line combinations, and see what we're going to do."
