Dave Feschuk: The Maple Leafs are better with Nick Foligno — whose quotable shot at Toronto’s defence no longer applies

If it goes well, Foligno will be the Zach Hyman-esque grinder they have been seeking to complement, say, John Tavares and William Nylander. Or maybe he’s a third-line checking staple. The details will be worked out after Foligno serves his seven-day quarantine and dons the same No. 71 his dad wore for the Leafs, Dave Feschuk writes.

Leafs have to find a way to keep Hyman; Campbell playing into role as long-term starter

A couple of things have become more clear during the Maple Leafs’ recent run of success. We’re looking at Zach Hyman and Jack Campbell. We already had a fairly good idea that it will be imperative for Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas to find a way to re-sign Hyman during the off-season rather than watch the 28-year-old join another team in free agency. ...

SIMMONS: Finding Zach Hyman. The story behind the trade that brought him to Toronto

In search of a 17-year-old Zach Werenski, the Maple Leafs took a shine to a 22-year-old college teammate named Zach Hyman. This is how it works sometimes in sports. You shop for one thing, you find something else. The Leafs knew they were going to be picking early in the 2015 NHL entry draft. They just didn’t know how early when they heavily scouted the University of Michigan’s Werenski at a January tournament. They came away impressed with Werenski. But they...

Matthews line, Campbell shine as Maple Leafs start four-game trip with win in Winnipeg

Never mind the Winnipeg Jets’ forward depth. No fooling, the Maple Leafs’ superstars shone on the last night of March in Manitoba. Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner, with the help of Zach Hyman, shone early in the North Division battle, providing the Leafs with a comfortable cushion on the way to a 3-1 victory at Bell MTS...

Sunday’s FTB: A Maple Leafs Goalie Controversy

Photo by Derek Leung/ The controversy we deserved is here! The Toronto Maple Leafs got some payback against the Calgary Flames last night, defeating them 2-0 in a convincing win with a lineup that was expected to be the same as in Friday’s game, but instead had a surprise shakeup mere minutes before the game with Wayne Simmonds jumping to the top line and Zach Hyman moving to what was nominally the fourth line. We have more coverage in our game recap here. What was more remarkable about the game was the return of Jack Campbell in net, who has been out injured for much...

Dave Poulin: Why the Leafs’ Zach Hyman is the perfect plug-and-play linemate — soon to be reflected in his pay

Beyond the necessary physical skills, it’s the mental side that separates Hyman. He takes on any role with supreme confidence plus a humbleness that comes with being a late-round draft pick. There is an understanding that he has earned everything he has received, Dave Poulin writes.

Saturday FTB: So you want a new goalie

Photo by Andy Devlin/NHLI via Jack Campbell is nice, but replacing Freddie this off-season will be no small task Frederik Andersen ain’t what he used to be, and he’s going to be a free agent this off-season. The Leafs will be against the cap and also have to work on re-signing Zach Hyman, and also have Morgan Rielly as a UFA the following year. They’re going to have to replace a bunch of their one-year free agents like Spezza, Thornton, and Simmonds even if one or more of them do re-sign. Suffice it to say, the Leafs are in a dill of a pickle when it comes to...

What A Zach Hyman Contract For The Toronto Maple Leafs Could Look Like

It’s no secret, Zach Hyman is as vital to the success of the Toronto Maple Leafs as any of his teammates. He won’t score as many goals as Auston Matthews, or dazzle with the puck like Mitch Marner. However, his value is irreplaceable and almost untraceable on the stat sheet. Which makes it that much […] The post What A Zach Hyman Contract For The Toronto Maple Leafs Could Look Like appeared first on Last Word On Hockey.

TRAIK-EOTOMY: Can the Maple Leafs afford to bring back Zach Hyman — and should they?

It was a week ago when TSN’s hockey panel tried to answer the question of who was the Toronto Maple Leafs’ third-most valuable forward after Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner. The options were John Tavares, William Nylander and … Zach Hyman? At least one panellist chose the latter. That’s how valuable the heart-and-soul grinder has been to the team this year, something GM Kyle Dubas reiterated in his...

Hyman's impact on Leafs each day is obvious, but future not as clear

Kyle Dubas had no interest in speculating about Zach Hyman’s future. “I’m not going to comment on him or any of the pending free agents, restricted or unrestricted,” Dubas said. “I don’t think it’s productive at this time to do so.” With the salary cap of $81.5 million US expected to remain flat for the foreseeable future, clubs such as the Leafs will be challenged to keep valuable players who...
