Greenwich resident John Hayden had a great rookie season this as a freshman on the Yale hockey team. Hayden played his freshman and sophomore seasons in prep school at Brunswick.

Greenwich native and Yale freshman John Hayden got off to a slow start for the Bulldog’s hockey team this year, but as the season progressed so did Hayden. The 6 foot, 3 inch, 210 lb. forward ended his first year of college hockey with 16 points, scoring three goals and adding 10 assists. Along the way, he earned ECAC Player of the Week and Rookie of the Week awards.
Prior to entering Yale, Hayden was drafted in the third round of the NHL draft by the Chicago Blackhawks (the 74th overall pick in the 2013 draft). He  also was  invited to the 2013 USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp. He attended Pioneer High School in Ann Arbor, Mich., and served as a captain for the U.S. National Team Development Program.
Hayden also skated with the Team USA squad that won the 4 Nations Tournament in Ann Arbor, was MVP of the 2013 USHL/NHL Top Prospects Game and won the silver medal at the IIHF U-18 World Championships in Sochi, Russia.
Hayden, the son of Diana and Mark Hayden, spent his freshman and sophomore years at Brunswick School, in Greenwich, where he scored 59 points over two seasons, notching 21 goals in his sophomore year.
His brother, Will, goes to Wake Forest University and his sister, Catherine, is in high school at Sacred Heart.
