Peterborou­gh na­tive’s first NHL goal is a game win­ner

The Peterborough Examiner - - SPORTS -

Peterborou­gh na­tive Bar­rett Hay­ton’s first Na­tional Hockey League goal was a big one.

His game-win­ning goal early in the third pe­riod broke open a 3-3 tie as the Ari­zona Coy­otes ral­lied for a 5-3 win over the New Jersey Devils on Fri­day night at the Pru­den­tial Cen­ter in Ne­wark, N.J.

In a post-game in­ter­view with Fox Sports, Hay­ton gave credit to team­mate Nick Sch­maltz for cre­at­ing a turnover and feed­ing him.

“Stick on the ice, puck right on my tape, so not too much to do there,” Hay­ton said.

Hay­ton was named the third star of the game.

“I felt pretty good out there. I think I can still be bet­ter and make more plays, but it felt pretty good,” Hay­ton said.

Hay­ton, cap­tain of the OHL’s Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds last sea­son, started the sea­son with the Coy­otes, but had only had one other start so far this sea­son, get­ting an as­sist against the Vegas Golden Knights on Oct. 10.

He was signed by the Coy­otes after be­ing the fifth over­all pick in the 2018 NHL draft.
