College Hockey:
Blackhawks ink BC’s Jimmy Hayes

The Chicago Blackhawks announced on Tuesday that the AHL’s Rockford IceHogs have signed Boston College right wing Jimmy Hayes an amateur tryout agreement.

Hayes was drafted by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the second round of the 2008 NHL draft before being traded to Chicago in exchange for a second round pick on June 26, 2010.

Hayes just completed his junior season at BC and was second on the team with 21 goals and tied for third with 33 points. In three years with the Eagles, Hayes accumulated 81 points (42 goals and 39 assists) in 117 games.

      I’m going to try: This guy is singing at the same time as Cam Atkinson? Atkinson is not even a fully developed pro player at this point and his sidekick doesn’t want to ride out his last year of eligibility. What? He must have already admitted to himself that BC has no chance against the WCHA, especially North Dakota next year. North Dakota has an entire lineup of pro drafts that are still playing for the trophy.

      Sioux Yeah Yeah!!! Frattin for Hobey, Atkinson and Miele choked, Hockey East is a second rate conference, Atkinson beat up someone like four years ago so Boston College are a bunch of thugs and losers that should be branded so for life.

        Hockey East is second rate, huh? Just shows your lack of knowledge about college hockey. Hockey East = 1993, 1995, 1999, 2001, 2008, 2009, 2010 NATIONAL CHAMPIONS!

        Oh yeah, pretty good for the Sioux. They actually have a chance at their first title since the last century. And if you knew anything about the Sioux you’d know that BC is 6 wins to 3 loses against UND in the National tourney.

    Sorry to see both Jimmy and Cam take off for the Pro ranks … Good Luck to you both, you will be missed.

    And people thought BC was young this year … wait until next year!!!

    Hadn’t realized that BC had won 2 of the last three NC’s and was in 7 of the last 13 NC Final games.

    UND is awesome – UND and BC are like Bama and Florida in football only their kids seem to graduate at a higher clip.
