Hayes recorded an assist and two shots on goal in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Kraken.

Hayes sent a headman pass to Ivan Provorov, who scored the game-winning goal at 2:14 of the extra session. The 29-year-old Hayes didn't have to miss any time after a stint in the COVID-19 protocols lined up with the NHL's holiday break. The center is up to seven points in 12 contests, and he should be in contention for the second-line center spot while Sean Couturier is in the virus protocols.
