VP\/GM Stan Bowman\'s statement on Kevin Hayes

Chicago Blackhawks Vice President/General Manager Stan Bowman released the following statement regarding Kevin Hayes:

“We offered Kevin what we believed was a generous and fair contract. Unfortunately, he felt it was in his best interests to become a free agent. We are looking forward to the compensatory draft pick we are receiving and are focused on the excitement surrounding the start of training camp next month.”

Per the National Hockey League’s Collective Bargaining Agreement Article 8.3(b), the Blackhawks will receive a second-round pick (54th overall) in the 2015 NHL Draft.
