So, the Rangers will probably be without Kevin Hayes for a little while.
Early in the first half of the first period, Hayes was slow to get up after Vegas Golden Knights defenseman Nate Schmidt rode him hard into the boards:

The only update the Rangers have offered thus far was a mid-game report that he was being evaluated for a lower-body injury:
OFFICIAL: #NYR Kevin Hayes – lower
body – being evaluated

While the Rangers have yet to update the situation since, Hayes did miss the remainder of the game, which can’t be seen as a good sign.
Updates will be provided as they’re announced.
- Agreed, I'd play Holland over Boo.**Pack get Chytil back, Holland should be called up. Vastly superior offensive player to Nieves.He certainly deserves the opportunity (Holland).
He's the kind of player you want when you're in a better position a couple of years from now by which time he should be hitting his stride on all cyclinders.
Look how long it took Jon Audy-Marchessault,(https://www.blueshirtbanter.com/2018...-that-got-away )-- we let a bona fide point a game center get away there (we weren't the only ones, though, Columbus and Florida and Tampa did Too), with lousy organizational talent management. hayes is talent in hand and I am convinced there is more upside to come, injuries permitting. of course, I'm the worst jinx when I say these things, but ya gotta have an opinion and that's mine.
This year is looking more problematic by the day. If I'm selling, it's Nash first, not Hayes,Yeah, it's just not the one everyone wants.

Maybe a Bozak deal now needs to be made? I'd be ok with giving Nieves a look there, but Desharnias is probably going to just get more playing time or Miller jumps to center and they play the shit out of Fast on the bottom two lines.What are the chances the Rangers look for a legit #1 center in the off season? I know for the time being Zibanejad is the defacto #1, but he doesnt fit the bill IMO. Maybe in regards to offensive production at certain times he does but Hayes does a better job being a shutdown center. A top C that doesn’t necessarily play against the opposing teams top lines is a problem imo.
I don’t know the stats so let me tackle that right now. This is all from the ever so popular eye test.Points or not, he's been horrible since his return.

Sent from my iPhone using Blueshirts Brotherhood mobile app powered by TapatalkProblem solved. Just need a cheap 3rd Pair LHD.Same old problem. Hayes is a fantastic 3. Zib is a fantastic 2.
