Kevin Hayes has proven himself to be a solid addition in the offseason for the Flyers, but it seems like every week more and more fans are taking a liking to not only his game, but his personality, too.
If Hayes didn't grow up playing hockey and being a ref, since you know, he used to ref, then one might think he would grow up to be a comedian.
Every time he gets mic'd up for a game, Flyers fans are in for a treat. This time was no different when the team hosted the Los Angeles Kings on 80s night (though Hayes knew nothing about the theme night until he hit the ice).
He also recycled a joke during warmups — after getting a laugh from Claude Giroux when questioning him about the current playlist, he found himself alongside Connor Bunnaman cracking the same joke, but about Alain Vigneault. Equally funny, though.
When both teams find themselves on the benches waiting for a challenge from Vigneault to be completed, Hayes and Nicolas Aube-Kubel have a laugh when 'Kubes' jokes if A.V. has to go to the box if the call was not overturned.
Now, was this nickname one Hayes often used for Aube-Kubel, or does it change every game? These are the questions that keep Flyers fans up at night.
Hayes also jokes quite a bit about being bad with, "I suck," "I might f------ retire," and "I'm the f------ worst player in this league right now."
Everyone knows he's great. Truly, where would the penalty kill be without him this season? You know what ... that's a dark and twisted path I'd rather not go down at the moment.
The funniest bit though has to come when a puck hits the boards right in front of Hayes while he's on the bench and calls for security.
The gift that keeps on giving.
