July 2013- Hayden comes to the Hawks via the US National Team Development program. The big pivot brings with him an array of intangibles that will serve him well as his development continues. He possesses a strong work ethic, a willingness to mix it up along the boards, and a good net presence. His ultimate upside offensively is anybody’s guess at this point, but those intangibles and his size should set him up for at least checking line duty at the NHL level which will be worth watching for fantasy GM’s in multi-category leagues. He is willing to drop the gloves and has put up good PIM totals in the USNTDP. Hayden is committed to Yale for the upcoming season and may use a couple of years of eligibility before turning pro.



Fantasy Outlook: C-

His offensive upside is still unknown, but has the size and physicality to be a bottom forward down the road.
