Zach Hyman Unlikely to Return to the Leafs

zach hyman will not re sign with the leafs

As we etch further into the off-season, the picture of the Toronto Maple Leafs roster situation for next year becomes more clear.

As it stands, it does not look like Zach Hyman will re-sign with the club. Hyman who understandably wants to test the free agent market will see what he can fetch, which will likely be in the $5m-$6.5m range a price too steep for the Toronto Maple Leafs to stomach.

Sportsnet insider Chris Johnston had this to say on the Leaf Report:

“I really believe that it’s highly unlikely that we’ll see Zach Hyman back with the Leafs”

Further, James Mirtle who covers the Leafs for the Athletic said the following:

“The more I’ve talked to people around the team in the weeks since the Leafs’ season ended in ugly fashion, the less that feels like where we’re headed. In fact, it feels downright unlikely anything is going to get done.”

Everyone with intimate knowledge of the Toronto Maple Leafs believe it is the end of Zach Hymans tenure with the team, he wants to get paid and the team can’t match what other teams are going to be offering him.

Zach Hyman has played 345 games for the Toronto Maple Leafs putting up an impressive 185 points.

It’s not all bad news for Leafs fans, we reported earlier that the Leafs are looking to make a big splash this off-season by bringing in a high profile player. Hyman leaving  improves their cap situation and makes the chances of the Leafs landing a high profile player this off-season all the more likely.
