Originally selected by the Washington Capitals in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft, Hay played two games with the Capitals before he was traded to the Florida Panthers in exchange for Esa Tikkanen in what turned out to be their run to the finals in 1998. Hay also played for the Tampa Bay Lightning and Calgary Flames.
Hay compiled 6 points in 79 NHL games.
Hay also spent time in the American Hockey League, ECHL, and the Central Hockey League. During his time with the Pensacola Ice Pilots of the ECHL, Hay was named In Glas Co ECHL Player of the Week for the week of December 13–19, 2004.
Hay had initially signed with the Fresno Falcons of the ECHL in July 2007 as a training-camp invite but was eventually released by the team in October. Upon being released by the Falcons, Hay had agreed to play with the Nottingham Panthers of the EIHL. Two days after agreeing to terms, Hay announced that he " would not be in a position to pass a medical on arrival and has been forced to retire from the sport." Despite this, Hay then played with the Bentley Generals of the Chinook Hockey League for the 2007-08 hockey season.
He agreed to play with the Corner Brook Royals during the 2008-09 season. Despite promising to "at least play all home games", Hay was a no-show to several team functions a week prior to the Royals' first home game, and decided to play with the then-Swedish Division 1 team Orebro HK
Hay currently lives in Calgary and runs the DH One Speed Athletics Hockey School and Bootcamps.
