Jimmy Hayes will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against the Vancouver Canucks.

Jimmy Hayes opened the scoring in Wednesday's 2-0 win at Vancouver, posting an even-strength goal.

Hayes tickled the back of the twine in the team's opener against Colorado on Oct. 7, then proceeded to go scoreless in six straight outings. He appears to have re-discovered his scoring touch, posting two goals with an assist and a plus-3 rating over his past three games. However, he is still only getting about 13-15 minutes of ice time and he is a bottom-six forward so his fantasy value is rather limited at this time.

He finished the game with a plus-2 rating, two shots on goal and two hits in 15:36 of ice time. Hayes is up to two goals and three points in eight games this season. Rookie Jesper Bratt that scored the game-winner in the shootout for the New Jersey.

Hayes saw only 6:56 of action Saturday as coach John Hynes was not happy with Hayes, Marcus Johansson and Pavel Zacha. He benched the trio and went with nine forwards the final 35 minutes of the game. Hayes has one goal this season in five games and his spot in the lineup will likely be taken by Stefan Noesen.

New Jersey has signed Jimmy Hayes to a one-year deal worth $700,000.

Jimmy Hayes was not among the 19 players cut from New Jersey's training camp roster on Tuesday.

Only 32 players remain, so Hayes has made it to the final phase of the battle. He's been attending the Devils' training camp on a tryout basis and at this point the odds of him getting a contract offer seem pretty good. He's coming off a rough season where he had two goals and five points in 58 contests with Boston.

Jimmy Hayes picked up a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 4-3 OT loss to the New York Rangers.

Hayes is attending training camp on a professional tryout, so these preseason games mean more to him than they do for most of the other players on the roster. The 27-year-old had a season to forget with the Bruins last year, as he only managed to two goals and three points in 58 games. He'll never be a point producer at the NHL level, but he can still be an effective player if he uses his size and strength to his advantage.
Sep 20 - 10:36 PM

The New Jersey Devils have given Jimmy Hayes a professional tryout.

He'll attend training camp with the Devils in an attempt to earn himself a contract. Hayes had a miserable year with the Bruins last year, as he earned only two goals and three assists in 58 games. Boston ended up buying out the rest of his contract this summer. There's a realistic chance for him to crack the Devils' lineup because it isn't that deep, but even if he does suit up with New Jersey this season, don't expect him to have any kind of fantasy value.
Aug 23 - 2:19 PM

The Boston Bruins have announced that they're buying out Jimmy Hayes' contract.
