The Rat Trick Links: Kevin Hayes, NHL Ice Bucket Challenge, Avalanche

Kevin Hayes, brother of Panthers forward Jimmy Hayes, is scheduled to become a free agent today as the Blackhawks couldn’t reach an agreement with their high-end prospect. Hayes probably chose not to sign with Chicago because of there immense depth and it seems as if he wants to play in the NHL this year. The Panthers, Flames, and Rangers have all been linked to having some level of interest in Hayes.

The Ice Bucket Challenge has taken off like crazy throughout the U.S. and the sports world has actively been a part of it. The NHL has even had some players/officials take part in the fight against ALS. continues its 30in30 series today by looking at the great past season from the Colorado Avalanche and how they can keep progressing forward.

Fox Sports Florida announced yesterday that they are bringing in Denis Potvin to be a color analyst beside Steve Goldstein. Billy Lindsay will now be on Panthers LIVE! for all the pre-game, intermission, and post game analysis. Potvin returns to the Panthers broadcast booth after spending the past few years with the Senators.
