He became a free agent this past weekend when the Chicago Blackhawks were unable to sign him. Hayes was selected with the 24th overall pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. He broke out last season with Boston College, scoring 27 goals and 65 points in 40 games, while playing alongside NCAA point leader Johnny Gaudreau.

All was quiet on the Kevin Hayes front during the first two days of his UFA eligibility as rumors continue to swirl where the NCAA standout forward might end up after he turned down the Blackhawks' contract offer.

Hayes was runner up for the college hockey MVP last year after lighting it up for Boston College with 27 goals and 65 points in 40 games. After finishing his college career, the 22 year-old preferred to become a free agent rather than sign with Chicago and work his way up their loaded depth chart. Reports have linked a handful of teams to the pursuit of the versatile forward who can play both center and right wing. Hayes will apparently narrow down his options early next week. It's worth noting that the Calgary Flames own the rights to Hayes' two linemates at Boston College, John Gaudreau and Bill Arnold.

Henrik Lundqvist's off-season routine comprises of lots of family time in Sweden, light exercises, tennis and teaching at his own goalie camp.

Lundqvist, his wife Therese and two-year old daughter Charlise spend the summer in Gothenburg, a coastal town where he played hockey for Frolunda HC of the Swedish Elite League. Rest and social time are amongst the top priorities for the King, as he experienced the most action-packed year of his career involving a wearing two-month slump, a silver medal in the Olympics and a Stanley Cup Finals appearance. The 32 year-old says he plays a lot of tennis, in addition to attending the Swedish Open tournament in Bastad. As August wears on, the star goaltender will increase the rhythm of his workouts to prepare for training camp.

The Blackhawks won't reach an agreement with pending unrestricted free agent Kevin Hayes.

"We offered Kevin what we believed was a generous and fair contract," Chicago GM Stan Bowman said in a statement. "Unfortunately, he felt it was in his best interests to become a free agent. We are looking forward to the compensatory draft pick we are receiving and are focused on the excitement surrounding the start of training camp next month." The Hawks will receive a second-round pick (54th overall) in the 2015 draft when Hayes becomes a UFA on Saturday.

There's plenty of speculation that the Calgary Flames will target Kevin Hayes when he becomes a free agent on Saturday.

The prospect of reuniting with Boston College linemates Johnny Gaudreau and Bill Arnold is tantalizing after they dominated the NCAA ranks last year. Obviously, Calgary GM Brad Treliving was tight-lipped about the possibility on Thursday because Hayes' rights are still owned by the Chicago Blackhawks.

Ryan Potulny has agreed to an AHL contract with the Hartford Wolf Pack.

He has spent the last three seasons with the AHL's Hershey Bears. Potulny joined the Bears in late December last year and he recorded 10 points in 38 games.

Kyle Beach has agreed to join EC Red Bull Salzburg.

According to Google translate, he'll play on a tryout contract until the end of September. Beach played for AHL Rockford and Hartford last season, while having a brief stint with HV71 in Sweden. Beach was the 11th overall pick in the 2008 draft and the 24-year-old forward hasn't played any NHL games.

Kevin Hayes can become an unrestricted free agent on Saturday at midnight if a contract isn't worked out with the Blackhawks.

Hayes' agent, Robert Murray, said Thursday that it's "not likely" that Hayes will sign with Chicago before the deadline. He has played the past four seasons at Boston College and was a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award last year. Hayes had 27 goals and 65 points in 40 games, while playing with NCAA star Johnny Gaudreau, who ended up winning the Hobey Baker Award in 2014. If he hits free agency then the Hawks haven't been ruled out as a landing destination, but he should attract interest from plenty of other teams.

Dan Boyle isn't going to change the way he plays in New York.

"They got me for a reason," he said. "I'm not going to re-invent myself; they know what they're getting." The veteran defenseman will add experience, mobility, offense and a right-handed shot to the Rangers' blueline. Boyle will also be expected to help New York's power play, which ranked 15th in the league (18.2%) last year.
Aug 11 - 12:54 PM

Ryan Bourque has re-signed with the New York Rangers.

Derick Brassard is looking forward to receiving a larger role with the New York Rangers this season.

He's slated to be New York's number two center after the club bought out Brad Richards. "I try and improve every year as a player, but I am going to go about preparing myself the same way and I am going to be the same player, just try and be even better," Brassard said. "I think last season will help me and the whole team, because now we all know what it takes to really compete for the Stanley Cup. I want to mature as a player in all areas, and I want to take another big step." He made positive strides last season with a career high 18 goals and 45 points in 81 games. Brassard agreed to a five-year, $25 million contract on July 27.
