Looks like the Jets have added some centre depth as first reported by TSN acquiring Rangers centre Kevin Hayes for their 2019 1st round pick, Brendan Lemieux and a conditional pick.  Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet indicates that the conditional pick is a 4th rounder (in 2022) if the Jets win the Stanley Cup.

Hayes has 14 goals and 28 assists for New York in 51 games this season.
