Each Friday throughout the regular season Kevin Weekes will be bringing you his Friday Four in his Weekes on the Web blog. He will be blogging about four players, teams, plays, trends or really four of whatever in the NHL that have caught his eye.
A rookie in New York, the Los Angeles Kings coming on, and two defensemen that are on my radar and better be on yours too. It's all in my Friday Four:
1. It's happening for Hayes
One thing you have to give the Rangers credit for is their scouting and drafting and development. They've done a really good job, an excellent job for the most part, in developing talent. Sometimes it is about guys they trade for or acquire, whether it's an off-the-grid guy like Mats Zuccarello or a guy like Hayes, who has a big body and can skate and play.
