BC's Hayes to Miss Rest of Season
CHN Staff Report
BOSTON Boston College junior forward Kevin Hayes will miss the remainder of the season after suffering an injury in Tuesday's game against Massachusetts-Lowell.
Hayes, a 2010 first-round NHL Draft pick of Chicago, bruised his right quadriceps muscle during the game, and needed surgery today to release pressure on the area, the team said.
Hayes was playing his first game since being suspended by coach Jerry York for three games for a violation of team rules.
The surgery, which involved release of fascia to prevent long-term damage to the muscle, was performed by a vascular surgeon at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center in Brighton, Mass. Hayes is resting in stable condition at the hospital.
A 6-foot-3, 213-pound junior from Dorchester, Mass., has registered 67 points – 17 goals and 50 assists – in 102 career games. He has 25 points – six goals and 19 assists – in 27 games this season.
