Hyman (knee) was placed on long-term injured reserve Tuesday, per CapFriendly. Hyman will miss Wednesday's game versus the Senators, which will be his 10th absence since suffering the injury April 18 versus the Canucks. The 28-year-old Hyman is expected to return some time during the playoffs.
Hyman (knee) will miss Wednesday's clash with the Senators, David Alter of The Hockey News reports. Hyman will be shelved for his 10th straight contest and will likely be held out of action until the postseason, as the team needs the cap space to activate Frederik Andersen (lower body) off long-term injured reserve. Despite having appeared in a mere 43 contests this year, the 28-year-old winger reached the 30-point mark for the fourth straight season and could be a decent fantasy option in postseason pools.
Hyman (knee) returned to practice in a non-contact capacity Wednesday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports. Hyman will need to be cleared for contact before rejoining Toronto's lineup, but he's clearly trending in the right direction. The 28-year-old winger racked up 15 goals and 33 points in 43 games before suffering a sprained knee April 18 versus Vancouver.
According to coach Sheldon Keefe, Hyman (knee) has resumed skating, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports. Although Hyman getting back on the ice is an encouraging development, he'll need to rejoin his teammates for practice before being cleared for game action. The 28-year-old forward has missed Toronto's last five contests with a sprained knee.
Hyman suffered a sprained MCL and will miss at least the next two weeks, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. Hyman took a brutal knee-to-knee hit from Alexander Edler on Sunday, which resulted in a two-game suspension for the Canucks defenseman. A two-week timeline means that the earliest Hyman can return is with fewer than 10 games remaining in the regular season. The 28-year-old has racked up 33 points and a plus-19 rating in 43 games this season.
