Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid is a big fan of newly acquired winger Jimmy Hayes.
The Bruins traded Reilly Smith to the Panthers to get Hayes, and McQuaid knows how difficult it can be to play against him. "I can remember pretty well playing against Jimmy in Florida," McQuaid said. "He's one guy who stood out; there's not too many forwards I play against that are taller than me [Hayes stands 6-foot-6 while McQuaid is 6-5], and I was battling with him in front of the net and can recall remembering how big he was, and his size, and the difficulty of moving him from the front of the net. Obviously, [he is] a guy who can shoot the puck." Sep 6 - 2:50 PM

Jimmy Hayes is excited to be a part of the Boston Bruins and have a chance to play in his first Winter Classic in the upcoming 2015-2016 season.

After being traded by Florida to Boston on July 1st for Reilly Smith and Marc Savard’s contract, Hayes returns to his hometown Boston and will get a chance to play in his first Winter Classic on January 1, 2016 at Gillette Stadium. "Getting traded here, and then hearing about the Winter Classic, it's going to be a great moment for me," he said. Besides his excitement for the Winter Classic, fantasy gamers should keep an eye on Hayes as he could be a sleeper come next year’s draft. He was able to score 19 goals and chip in 16 assists in 72 games played with the Panthers last season and will now move to a more well-balanced Boston offense where he could get a chance to be a top-six forward.

Florida traded RFA forward Jimmy Hayes to Boston for forward Reilly Smith and Marc Savard's contract.

Still just 25-years-old, Hayes had a career season for Florida by scoring 19 goals and 35 points over 72 games. However he's coming off a one-year contract worth just $925K, so he may not break the bank to re-sign. The deal also sent about $7.4M in cap space southward.

Quinton Howden, Jonathan Huberdeau, Corban Knight, John McFarland, Greg McKegg, Alex Petrovic, and Garrett Wilson also received qualifying offers from the Panthers. Hayes had a career year in 2014-15 with 19 goals and 35 points in 72 games.

Jimmy Hayes tickled the twine for the Panthers in their 2-1 shootout win against the Bruins on Saturday night.

Even if the Panthers fall short in their playoff quest, fans should be optimistic the playoffs could be a reality next season because of young talent like Hayes, who is 25 years old. He has 18 goals and 31 points this season, showing great progress in his second full season with the Panthers. It was especially nice to see him respond after being a healthy scratch on Thursday. Dave Bolland and Jussi Jokinen got the assists. Florida is four points behind the Bruins for the final wild-card spot in the East.

Jimmy Hayes was a healthy scratch Thursday.

Mar 20 - 9:16 AM

Jimmy Hayes and Shawn Thornton were scratched against the Red Wings on Thursday night.

No specific reason was cited for why Hayes was given a seat, but it may have to do with having just three points with nine hits over his last 10 games. For the season, Hayes has 17 goals, 30 points, and 126 hits through 61 games. Thornton, meanwhile, has played just four times in March, and just 40 games overall this season. He's amassed 48 PIMs and 82 hits during that time.

Jimmy Hayes assisted on both Florida goals in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Maple Leafs.

Hayes set up Brandon Pirri for his first period marker then executed a nifty deflection to get the puck on the stick of Aaron Ekblad so that the youngster could wire home a tally in the second. The former Maple Leafs draft pick snapped a seven game scoreless drought with this effort.

Jimmy Hayes led the charge for Florida on Tuesday as they scored a 6-2 win over the Ducks.

Hayes picked up a goal and an assist in the victory, bringing his season totals to 16 and nine for a total of 25 points. The unheralded winger is almost definitely going to reach 20 goals now and stands a good chance of reaching 25. Dave Bolland matched Hayes' line with a goal and an assist of his own while Aleksander Barkov, Nick Bjugstad, Aaron Ekblad and Dmitry Kulikov also tallied in the win.

Jimmy Hayes recorded a pair of goals for the Panthers in a 4-2 win over the Islanders Tuesday.

Hayes recently spent a night in the press box as a healthy scratch and it seems to have motivated him. The unheralded forward has quietly racked up 15 goals in 40 games and though he offers little else, those tallies have value. Erik Gudbranson and Brandon Pirri also found the back of the net for Florida in the win.
Feb 3 - 9:53 PM

Jimmy Hayes will draw back into Florida's lineup on Monday against the New York Rangers.

He was scratched on Saturday. Scottie Upshall and Tomas Fleischmann appear to be heading to the press box on Monday, so Tomas Kopecky could be back in the lineup as well. Hayes has 13 goals, which ranks second on the Panthers, and 20 points in 38 games this year.

Florida Panthers forward Jimmy Hayes will be a healthy scratch on Saturday.

While Hayes has already set a career-high with 13 goals in 38 games, his offense has really dried up lately, as he hasn't scored a point in six straight games. This might be a good way to "wake him up" going forward.
Jan 31 - 2:27 PM

Hayes has now scored in back-to-back games for the Panthers. The 25-year-old has 13 goals and 20 points in 32 games this season. Hayes' goal opened the scoring in the game. The Panthers' forward has six goals and an assist in his last nine games. Brian Campbell, Tomas Kopecky and Sean Bergenheim also scored for Florida. The Panthers have won three in a row and four of their last five games.
