Hyman was returned to AHL Toronto on Thursday as part of an eight-player roster shuffle. Hyman is a promising two-way forward who's split time between the Leafs and their minor-league affiliate. He's picked up 33 points in 54 games with the parent club and six in 16 with the Marlies.
Hyman scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Lightning. This was Hyman's first career multi-point effort in his ninth NHL appearance. The 23-year-old has been one of the more successful pieces of Toronto's recent youth movement, with three goals in his last five games.
Hyman scored a goal in Wednesday's shootout victory over the Islanders. After defenseman Martin Marincin's slap shot was blocked by Thomas Greiss, the rookie scored off the rebound, earning his second goal in two games. Hyman, along with centerman William Nylander, was the first of the two Leaf's rookies to score against Greiss on Wednesday night. Playing only six games in the NHL, the 23-year-old right winger has two goals and two points under his belt. Fantasy owners can look forward to Hyman becoming a promising roster filler in the next few years.
Hyman notched his first NHL goal Monday in a 4-3 shootout loss to Buffalo. He drove the net hard and hammered home his own rebound. Hyman is a hard worker who is proving he belongs in the NHL. But for now, he won't deliver much fantasy value.
Hyman was recalled from the AHL by the Leafs on Monday, Jonas Siegel of TSN reports. Hyman joins a parade of Leafs making their NHL debuts in Monday night's game. A star at the University of Michigan last year -- 54 points in 37 games -- Hyman has had a decent rookie season in the AHL, collecting 13 goals and 33 points in 54 games. He'll likely see bottom-six minutes to start out, with some time on the penalty kill in the forecast.
