kevin hayes

The Pittsburgh Penguins acquired veteran forward Kevin Hayes and 2025 second-round draft pick from the St. Louis Blues on Saturday in exchange for future considerations.

Hayes, 32, signed a seven-year, $50 million extension with the Philadelphia Flyers in July 2019 before he was traded to the Blues in June of 2023.

At the time, Philadelphia agreed to retain 50 percent of Hayes’ remaining salary and will continue to do so as Hayes moves to St. Louis. The Dorchester, Mass., native has two years left on a contract that carries a $3.57 million salary cap hit.

Hayes tallied 29 points (13 goals, 16 assists) in 79 games for the Blues last season, a dip from 54 points (18 goals 36 assists) in 81 games the previous season with the Flyers.

The former first-round pick (No. 24 overall in 2010) has 415 points (168 goals, 247 assists) in 713 career games with the New York Rangers (2014-19), Winnipeg Jets (2019), Flyers (2019-2023) and Blues (2023-24).
