2018 Fantasy Outlook
Hayden split his 2017-18 campaign between the NHL and AHL, notching four goals and 13 points in 47 appearances with the Blackhawks and adding five goals and 17 points in 24 appearances in the minors. The 23-year-old Chicago native should be a full time NHLer this season, but he'll likely be tasked with a bottom-six checking role. The physical forward will likely rack up a ton of hits while throwing his 6-foot-3 frame around this campaign, but that won't be enough to make him worth owning in most fantasy formats.

Leading team in hits
CChicago Blackhawks
February 28, 2019
Hayden currently leads the Blackhawks in hits with 85 in 47 appearances.
ANALYSIS
Hayden will never be a viable fantasy asset, as he's only notched four points while averaging 9:23 of ice time this season, but his physicality and willingness to drop the mitts will continue to make him an attractive fourth-line option for coach Jeremy Colliton down the stretch.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Hayden was pretty impressive during his first taste of NHL action last season, tallying four points (one goal, three assists) while racking up 22 shots on goal and 44 hits in 12 games with the Blackhawks. Although he looked like he belonged with the big club in limited action, coach Joel Quenneville isn't just going to hand the Yale product a spot on Chicago’s Opening Night roster, but he'll presumably compete with the likes of Tanner Kero, Kyle Baun and Vince Hinostroza for a spot in the lineup on a nightly basis throughout the year. Hayden has a lot of potential as a big-bodied forward who likes to throw his weight around, but the questionable role leaves him as an undesirable option in most fantasy formats.
