Christopher Joseph "Chris" Hayes (born August 24, 1946) was a Canadian professional ice hockey player, most notable for the single game he played in the 1972 Stanley Cup Finals for the eventual Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins, his sole National Hockey League action.

He grew up in Chapeau, Quebec, a small village bordering on the Ottawa Valley. Hayes spent three years playing junior hockey for Oshawa 1965-68. He left hockey for two years, but returned in the 1970-71 season to play for Loyola College in Montreal. He then turned pro playing in four pro leagues for five different teams in a four year span.[1]

While playing for the Oklahoma City Blazers of the Central Hockey League in 1972, Hayes was called up due to injuries to play for the Boston Bruins. He played one game in the 1972 Cup Finals, and never played in the NHL again.[2] Hayes was not resigned by the Boston organization after the end of the 1973-74 season, and played four games in the NAHL in 1975-76, his final professional action.
