The National Hockey League (NHL) named its Three Stars of the Week today.
They were Nikita Kucherov of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Corey Crawford of the Chicago Blackhawks, and New York Rangers forward Kevin Hayes.
Hayes had a big week for the Rangers, scoring four goals in four games this past week. He now has six goals on the season so far, and has been a key player for the Rangers. The Rangers won all four of those games.
Hayes is currently having a bounce-back season, as last year, he struggled and had an off year. It seemed like he could not mesh with head coach Alain Vigneault’s style. However, this year, he has continued to work hard and not give up, and it has clicked for Hayes. If he can keep it up, he will definitely help the Rangers throughout the season.
