Hayden picked up a pair of assists and fired five shots on goal in Sunday's win over Colorado.

Not a bad start to his NHL career for Hayden, who just scored his first goal Saturday against Toronto. The 22-year-old is sporting a solid plus-4 rating and is making the most of his top-line role alongside Jonathan Toews. If he sticks in the top six, Hayden could be worth looking at, as the Blackhawks have clinched a playoff berth and will be looking to build momentum as they get set for a postseason run.
