The Blackhawks signed John Hayden to a two-year contract extension last Friday.
Hayden, 23, was a third-round pick (No.74 overall) in 2013 and turned pro after his senior season at Yale University in 2017. Last year he split his season between the AHL and NHL—picking up 17 points (5G / 12A) in 24 games with Rockford and 13 points (4G / 9A) in 47 games with Chicago. Hayden is a physical winger with some skill who should be in Blackhawks’ bottom-6 this fall.
Hayden will not play Monday because of an upper-body injury.

The Blackhawks have recalled John Hayden from Rockford (AHL).
Hayden, 23, has picked up five goals and nine assists (14 points) in 22 games with the IceHogs this season. He spent the early part of the season in the NHL and is recalled with 15 points (4G / 11A) in 51 career NHL games.
The Blackhawks have reassigned John Hayden to Rockford (AHL).
Hayden played just 6:07 TOI on Friday and was a healthy scratch on Saturday, so he will get a chance to continue to work on his game in the AHL. Tomas Jurco has been recalled to take his spot on the roster.
