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.

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.
Nov 19 - 1:54 AM

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.
Nov 14 - 11:43 PM

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.
Nov 13 - 10:28 AM

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."
Oct 15 - 10:10 AM

Jimmy Hayes has inked a one-year contract with the Florida Panthers.

It's a one-way deal, so Hayes will probably start the season in the NHL. He had 11 goals and 18 points in 53 games with Florida in 2013-14.
Jul 29 - 12:08 PM

Jimmy Hayes is set to have his arbitration hearing on July 29.

Hayes is coming off of his entry-level contract. He had 11 goals and 18 points in 53 games last season.
Jul 9 - 4:20 PM

Jimmy Hayes is a restricted free agent after completing his entry-level contract.

He filed for salary arbitration, but hearings won't start until July 20. Hayes played two games with Chicago last season before he was traded to Florida. In 53 matches with the Panthers, he accounted for 11 goals and seven assists.
Jul 5 - 5:39 PM

Jimmy Hayes will represent Team USA at the World Hockey Championships in May.

The tournament runs from May 9-25 in Minsk, Belarus. Hayes produced 11 goals and 18 points in 55 games this past season with Florida and Chicago. He skated in just two games with the Blackhawks before being moved to the Panthers.
Apr 19 - 9:56 AM

Jimmy Hayes netted his 11th goal of the season as he and the hapless Panthers dropped a 3-2 decision to the visiting Columbus Blue Jackets Saturday night.

Florida's other goal scorer was Vincent Trochek, his fifth of the season. It was the final game of the season for the Panthers, who have failed to qualify for the post-season in 12 of their past 13 campaigns.
Apr 12 - 10:23 PM

Jimmy Hayes potted his 10th goal of the year in Sunday's loss to Anaheim.

Krys Barch was originally credited with the marker and it would've ended a 76-game drought, but it was changed later after it was discovered that it banked off Hayes. Hayes has generated six goals and four assists in 13 games this month.
Mar 24 - 10:02 AM

Don't look now, but Jimmy Hayes might be worth adding for those desperate for scoring.

The Florida Panthers forward has five of his 13 points this season in the last five games, including four goals. He obviously doesn't have a long track record of success, but could conceivably remain hot in this final month; he scored two goals for the Panthers in a 4-3 SO loss to Vancouver on Sunday.
Mar 16 - 7:04 PM

Florida Panthers youngster Jimmy Hayes recorded the first two-goal game of his NHL career, but his team lost to the Boston Bruins 5-2 on Sunday.

Hayes now has seven goals and nine assists in 37 games played. He's obviously not quite there yet from a fantasy standpoint, but the Panthers hope that the 24-year-old might develop into a more productive NHL player in the future.
