– Former UNH men's hockey standout Darren Haydar (Milton, Ontario), who was recalled from Chicago (AHL) on Thursday, scored his first-career NHL goal at 2:21 of the first period in Saturday night’s 6-5 loss to New Jersey.

Haydar added one assist to give him a two-point night in his second game with the Thrashers this season.

Haydar was one of the “Hobey Hat Trick” finalists in 2002, the first year the field was narrowed to three players.  Haydar led the Wildcats in scoring his senior season with 31-45-76, and was the national leader in points per game (1.90).  The Hockey East Player of the Year, Haydar led the ‘Cats to their first-ever Hockey East tournament title as well as the regular season crown.

UNH advanced to its third Frozen Four in five seasons.  Darren, the 1998-99 Hockey East Rookie of the Year, closed out his career third on the UNH scoring list with 219 points, trailing only Ralph Cox (243) and 1999 Hobey Baker winner Jason Krog (238).
