  • Penguins' Kevin Hayes: Traded to Pittsburgh

    Hayes was traded to Pittsburgh from St. Louis for future considerations Saturday, reports Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.

    A second-round pick in 2025 goes with him, but it's the dreaded "future considerations" headed the other way in what's ostensibly a salary dump by the Blues. Hayes doesn't do much with the puck. He's not a fast skater, doesn't use his size and can't forecheck. But he can become a bottom-six pivot in Pittsburgh behind Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, as he won't be expected to provide offense.

  • Blues' Kevin Hayes: Inconsistent with Blues

    Hayes posted 13 goals and 16 assists across 79 games during the 2023-24 season.

    Hayes centered the third line for most of the campagin, and his limited playing time -- he averaged 14:28 of ice time -- led to the worst scoring performance of his career. The 31-year-old ended up being a healthy scratch three times in April. Hayes has two years remaining on his contract at a cap hit of $3.6 million per year, and the Blues may want that salary off their books as they try to inject youth into their lineup during this rebuild.

  • Blues' Kevin Hayes: Expected to play Thursday

    Hayes (illness) is on track to return to the lineup Thursday in Nashville, per Lou Korac of

    Hayes missed practice Wednesday but was back on the ice for morning skate Thursday. He has 13 goals and 16 assists, including five helpers on the power play, in 75 games this season.

  • Blues' Kevin Hayes: Questionable for Thursday

    Hayes is dealing with an illness Wednesday and is questionable for Thursday's game against Nashville, per Lou Korac of

    Hayes has 13 goals and 29 points in 75 appearances this season. If he doesn't play Thursday, then Zachary Bolduc might draw back into the lineup.

  • Blues' Kevin Hayes: Scores in win

    Hayes scored the Blues' first goal in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Ducks.

    It was Hayes' 13th goal and 27th point of the season. While the totals aren't gaudy, he's on something of a mini-hot streak. In the last four games, he's put up two goals and four points with 12 shots and a plus-5 rating. That's not exactly superstar-level production, but it's a marked improvement for Hayes after he had just one goal and no assists in the 10 games prior to this run.

  • Blues' Kevin Hayes: Goal, assist in win

    Hayes notched a goal and an assist in Monday's 5-1 win over the Bruins.

    Hayes extended St. Louis' lead to 3-0 early in the second period, beating Jeremy Swayman off the rush, before adding an assist on Brandon Saad's goal later in the frame. It's the first multi-point game for Hayes since Dec. 23 -- he has just two goals and five points in his last 24 contests. The 31-year-old center is up to 12 goals and 25 points through 65 appearances this season.

  • Blues' Kevin Hayes: Long goal drought finally ends

    Hayes scored on one of his four shots during Monday's 2-1 shootout win over the Flyers.

    Hayes has been mired in a lengthy goal drought. Prior to Monday's game, Hayes went 19 games without a goal. During that time, he had just two assists. It's been a tough season all around for Hayes, who has just 11 goals and 23 points through 60 games after posting 18 tallies and 54 points in 81 appearances with the Flyers a year ago.

  • Blues' Kevin Hayes: Produces helper in overtime win

    Hayes logged an assist and two hits in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Canucks.

    Hayes has just two points over 13 games since the holiday break. The 31-year-old has been stuck in a third-line role, and a lack of offense is unlikely to help him get a promotion if a lineup shuffle occurs. Hayes has 21 points, 84 shots on net, 23 hits and a minus-1 rating through 46 appearances, so most fantasy managers can do better when looking for center depth.

  • Blues' Kevin Hayes: Nets 10th goal of season

    Hayes scored a goal on five shots and added two hits in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Bruins.

    Hayes snapped a couple of droughts with his first-period tally -- he'd gone 10 games without a goal and seven contests without a point prior to Saturday. The 31-year-old center has been just alright in his first year with the Blues, racking up 10 goals, 10 assists, 78 shots on net and a minus-2 rating through 41 appearances. He'll likely continue to see middle-six minutes and some power-play time.

  • Blues' Kevin Hayes: One of each in overtime win

    Hayes recorded a goal, an assist and four shots in the Blues' 4-3 overtime win over the Stars on Saturday.

    Hayes finished a goal that rebounded off the end boards to give the Blues a 3-2 lead. He also picked up a helper on Brandon Saad's goal. Hayes is starting to heat up offensively, scoring four points in his last three games. He is now up to nine goals and 16 points through 30 contests this campaign. The former Flyer should continue to play on the third line and second power-play unit.

  • Blues' Kevin Hayes: Two tallies in losing effort

    Hayes scored two goals in Tuesday's 6-4 loss to the Red Wings.

    His two tallies came 31 seconds apart early in the second period to give the Blues a fairly short-lived 3-2 lead. Hayes hasn't been able to build up much momentum in his first season with St. Louis. He hasn't gotten on the scoresheet for more than two games in a row at any point -- the 31-year-old has a disappointing eight goals and 14 points through 28 contests.

  • Blues' Kevin Hayes: Pots goal in loss

    Hayes scored a goal, added two hits and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Hayes has found his scoring touch with four goals and two helpers over his last nine contests. The 31-year-old's improved play has gotten him onto the second line after toiling in a bottom-six role to start the campaign. He's at six tallies, six assists, 39 shots on net and a plus-4 rating through 25 appearances overall. Hayes could have more fantasy upside as long as he's playing with Brayden Schenn and Jordan Kyrou.

  • Blues' Kevin Hayes: One of each in win

    Hayes scored a goal and dished out an assist in Thursday's 6-4 win over the Sabres.

    Hayes is skating on the second line and the second power-play unit. He has put forth modest returns with 11 points and 34 shots on net through 22 games. The 31-year-old forward won't be easy to depend on for fantasy purposes with 14:40 of ice time per game, but it wouldn't be surprising if he improved a bit considering he posted 54 points -- 16 with the man advantage -- through 81 games last year.

  • Blues' Kevin Hayes: Notches game-winning goal

    Hayes scored the game-winning goal in a 6-5 road win against the Coyotes on Wednesday.

    Hayes beat backup Connor Ingram at 4:13 of the third period to give the Blues the lead, and there were no additional markers. He ended up with three shots on goal with a hit, and he won an amazing 15 faceoff attempts in 19 tries in his 15:14 of ice time across 21 shifts. It's hard to believe, but Wednesday's point coupled with his assist in Anaheim on Sunday means Hayes has strung together points in consecutive games for the first time this season.

  • Blues' Kevin Hayes: Draws assist

    Hayes recorded an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Lightning.

    Hayes earned a helper on a Jakub Vrana tally in the second period. The assist was Hayes' first point in five games. The center is up to six points, 15 shots on net, eight PIM and a plus-2 rating through 14 contests. The Blues haven't scored a lot early in the season -- though their offense can be explosive at times. That's left Hayes on the periphery for point production in a third-line role.

  • Blues' Kevin Hayes: Breaks out with three points

    Hayes scored twice, added an assist, logged two hits and went plus-2 in Friday's 4-1 win over the Devils.

    Hayes' first goal of the season stood as the game-winner, and he also factored in on both empty-netters. The 31-year-old has struggled to adjust early in his Blues tenure -- he had just two assists over the first eight contests of the campaign before Friday's breakout. The center is at five points, nine shots on net, six hits and a plus-2 rating through nine appearances. While this was a positive step, Hayes is likely to remain in a bottom-six role until he shows more consistency.

  • Blues' Kevin Hayes: Records helper in win

    Hayes logged an assist in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Flames.

    Hayes has struggled early in the season, logging two assists through his first six outings with the Blues. He was on the third line Thursday in an 11-forward, seven-defensemen lineup. The 31-year-old's non-scoring numbers haven't been particularly useful either -- he's at four shots on net, three hits, one blocked shots, a plus-2 rating and two PIM. With a lackluster role on a low-scoring team, Hayes is likely best left on the waiver wire in fantasy.
