07:41 AM ET 11.15 | In exchange for a guy who may not have fit into the long-term plans in Florida, the Panthers acquired forward Jimmy Hayes and defenseman Dylan Olsen. Hayes, who turns 24 next week, is a 6-foot-6 winger who hasn't been able to stick as a regular with the Blackhawks, but has 13 points and relatively unimpressive possession numbers in 43 career NHL games, though he has tallied 29 goals and 53 points in 80 AHL games since the start of last season. It could be an interesting fit if the Panthers were to pair Hayes with 6-foot-6 C Nick Bjugstad, a mix of towering collegiate forwards who have some skill to go with their size. Even if Hayes fits lower on the depth chart, he should get a legitimate opportunity to prove that he's capable of handling an NHL job.
