"COME AT ME BRO!"
It's official! The Blackhawks have signed Jimmy Hayes to a three-year contract. Hayes came to the Hawks from the Leafs during the summer. He joined his brother, Kevin Hayes, who was drafted by the Hawks in the first round. They also play together at Boston College. Kevin gave us a handful of cheesy draft photos. But Jimmy recently joined him for an "awkward family" photo shoot for Blackhawks magazine.
Jimmy's contract starts at the beginning of the 2011-12 season. Read more about the signing from the Blackhawks' official release: here.
Also, I can't guarantee that will be my last Jersey Shore reference.
