RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Easily one of the Rangers' most explosive signings of the summer, the 6-foot-3, 205-pound former Hobey Baker Award candidate is not your ordinary college free agent. While the Boston College forward managed just two points in eight games with Team USA at the World Junior Championships, he's coming off a solid four-year career with the Eagles, registering 67 points (28 goals) in 39 games as a senior. Formerly the property of the Blackhawks after they drafted him in 2010, Hayes has a “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”-kind of vibe to him. We would certainly consider Hayes a dark horse to make the Rangers’ opening-night roster.
The 18-year-old Hayes will be playing with Boston College, the defending NCAA Men's Ice Hockey Champions, this winter. He was selected as the 24th overall in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. He had 25 goals and 42 assists while with Noble and Greenough School of Massachusetts in 2009-10.
