Chicago has made a selection in the first round that can only be described as a pick for the future with the selection of Kevin Hayes from Dorchester, MA. Hayes is a junior at Nobles High and is looking to play for Boston College after he graduates.
NHL Central Scouting had this to say on Hayes
"Kevin is a skilled power forward who plays with enthusiasm and drive. He has very good hands and is an excellent play maker. He is a strong skater with a long stride, and uses his long reach and puck protection to beat defenders. He has an excellent wrist shot with a sneaky quick release, and will shoot from any angle. He controls the puck very well in traffic, sees the ice very well, and finds the open man. He has a very good knack of playing the puck in his skates for a big player, often moving the puck from skates to stick without losing speed."
