The Winnipeg Jets have traded forward Kevin Hayes to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the 2019 NHL Draft.
Hayes is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.
He was acquired by Winnipeg on Feb. 25 from the New York Rangers with Brendan Lemieux and Winnipeg’s first-round pick in the 2019 draft going the other way.
Hayes recorded five goals and eight assists in 20 regular-season games for the Jets in 2018-19.
The 27-year-old added two goals and an assist in six playoff games as Winnipeg fell to the St. Louis Blues in the first round.
