From all accounts it sounds like the Philadelphia Flyers have landed their second line center in Kevin Hayes.
Hayes' negotiating rights were acquired from the Winnipeg Jets last night and it's becoming pretty clear that he'll sign a multi-year deal with the Flyers in the coming days.
The 27 year old can play all forward positions but will likely be used as the Flyers second line center next year especially considering his history with new Flyers head coach Alain Vigneault.
Alexander Appleyard of The Athletic took a shot at predicting the Flyers lines heading into next year based on what they have now and prospect Morgan Frost cracking the NHL roster.
Some are calling it the best Flyers forward group since the 2010 Stanley Cup run.
Let's take a look at Appleyard's lines:
Giroux - Couts - Konecny
JvR - Hayes - Voracek
Frost - Patrick - Lindblom
Raffl - Laughton - Hartman
