Hyman (undisclosed) retook the ice late in Game 4, Mike Zeisberger of NHL.com reports. Fortunately, it appears Hyman has avoided a major issue and should be available to play in Game 5 on Friday. He should continue in his duties on the top line flanking John Tavares and Mitch Marner.
Hyman departed Wednesday's game with an injury, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports. No update was offered on Hyman after the contest, so his availability for Friday's Game 5 versus the Bruins remains unclear. If he can't play, Nicolas Petan is the other forward currently on the roster who could draw in.
Hyman scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Canadiens. Hyman also took a puck to the head that had him down on the ice for a short while. Thankfully, he didn't miss any ice time. It would have been a huge loss for the Leafs if he wasn't ready for the start of the playoffs. Hyman finished the season with a career-best 41 points (21 goals, 20 assists).
Hyman scored a goal and added two assists in Monday's 7-5 win over the Panthers. The 26-year-old has found the back of the net in three straight games, and Hyman's 20 tallies on the season are a career high. He's also two points shy of tying last year's career-high 40, but most of that production has come since the beginning of February -- Hyman has an impressive 12 goals and 20 points in his last 26 contests.
Hyman (illness) will rejoin the lineup for Friday's game against the Flyers, Hyman was considered a game-time call after taking part in practice Friday morning, but it appears he's feeling well enough to give it a go. He will take the place of Nicolas Petan among the lines and slot in alongside John Tavares and Mitch Marner. He doesn't typically participate on a power-play unit, which limits his appeal to deep fantasy leagues, but Hyman still has 32 points over 59 games.
