When '07 La Crescent graduate Eriah Hayes was skating for the Lancers, Coulee Region Chill, Topeka Roadrunners, Minnesota State-Mankato Mavericks and Worcester (Mass.) Sharks, he was likely dreaming of this moment.
36 seconds into the third period Thursday night, Hayes scored his first NHL goal.

Patrick Marleau and Tommy Wingels were credited for the assists.
Hayes, who was called up to San Jose on Jan. 3, was playing in his 13th game with the Sharks.
Hayes' goal was the only one of the night for San Jose (34-15-6). The Sharks lost the game 4-1.
