John Hayden started the hockey season as a senior at Yale University. On Saturday against the Toronto Maple Leafs, he scored his first career NHL goal.

Signed last weekend to his entry-level deal, Hayden has already appeared in one NHL game for Chicago, but he’s now on the score sheet.

Hayden tied the game in the second period, kicking a Jonathan Toews pass from his skate to his stick and then quickly roofing his shot on Frederik Andersen.
