The Philadelphia Flyers were willing to offer superstar Kevin Hayes a massive deal with his contract having expired following the 2018-19 season. First reported by Bob McKenzie, Hayes accepted a seven-year deal for $50 million.
In addition, the Winnipeg Jets will be receiving the Flyers’ fifth-round pick for the upcoming NHL Draft.
Hayes recorded 55 points throughout the season, scoring 19 goals and assisting on 36 others. During their playoff series against the St. Louis Blues, Hayes scored two goals and tallied one other assist. He finished that series with a total +3 overall rating and only served two minutes in the penalty box as a disciplined but accomplished skater.
