Boston College Hockey: Forward Kevin Hayes To Miss Rest Of The Season

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

The Boston College junior forward underwent surgery to release pressure on his right quad and will miss the rest of the season.

Kevin Hayes, fresh off a three game suspension, suffered a contusion to his right quadriceps muscle during last night's 4-2 loss to Lowell. The Boston College junior forward underwent surgery to release pressure on the area early this morning, and as a result, will miss the remainder of the season during recovery.

In his first game back post suspension, Hayes skated well, starting the game on the Eagles' fourth line with Michael Sit and Brendan Silk. He even found his way onto the scoring sheet, assisting on the first of two Bill Arnold goals. This season, Hayes has six goals and 19 assists in 27 games. The 2010 first-round draft choice of the Chicago Blackhawks has 17 goals and 50 assists in 102 career games.

Having Hayes on the ice made everyone around him better. The forward also was one of the Eagles' top scoring threats so this is a pretty significant loss for the Eagles as they head into the late-season stretch run.

Boston College, currently in a four-way tie for first in Hockey East, has two regular season series remaining -- this weekend in a home-and-home against Providence followed by a two game set up in Burlington against the Catamounts.
