All Signs Pointing To Kevin Hayes And Mats Zuccarello Being Moved At The Trade Deadline

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

Twelve days and six games away from the Feb. 25 trade deadline, The Post has learned that Blueshirts general manager Jeff Gorton has not engaged in contract extension talks with either Kevin Hayes or Mats Zuccarello.

Hence, the Rangers are on course to trade both impending free agents as rental properties in exchange for draft picks and NHL-ready prospects in a continuation of the rebuild policy instituted one year ago. The question therefore is not so much, “if” as “when and to whom?” You’d have to think the team will pull Hayes and Zuccarello from the lineup sooner rather than later in order to protect against a deal-wrecking injury.

The powerful Central-leading Jets, who defeated the Blueshirts 4-3 on Tuesday night by scoring twice within 1:59 early in the third after the visitors had overcome a first-period 2-0 deficit, are believed among the most interested parties in Hayes. The Jets have a handful of highly regarded prospects, including forwards Jack Roslovic and Kristian Vesalainen and defenseman Sami Niku.

They also could be in on Zuccarello, who before the match told The Post that he “[has] not heard any concrete news from my agent,” while his agent at Newport Sports, Don Meehan, told The Post that the Norwegian’s situation is “status quo.” Sources confirmed the same as it applies to Hayes.

Numerous Reports Of Kevin Hayes Signing With The New York Rangers

 

from Brian Costello of The Hockey News,

So how good is this Kevin Hayes?

Hayes was drafted in the first round, 24th overall by Chicago, in 2010. If that draft were to be re-held today, Hayes probably wouldn’t go in the first round. More than likely, he’d be a second round pick. At least 25 players from the 2010 have established themselves as NHL regulars and, according to our Future Watch scouting committee, at least 15 other players drafted in 2010 rank as better prospects than Hayes.

But that doesn’t mean Hayes can’t play catch-up with those other 2010 draftees in the seasons to come. He does have compelling credentials. After three middling seasons at Boston College, in which the budding power forward scored just 17 goals and 67 points in 102 games, he blossomed as a senior. Playing on a line with Hobey Baker Award winner Johnny Gaudreau and Bill Arnold – both draft picks of the Calgary Flames, one of many teams vying for his services once he became a free agent – Hayes used his size and playmaking ability to an impressive 27 goals and 65 points in 40 games.
