Hyman confirmed he will return to the lineup at Maple Leafs practice Tuesday.
Hyman has been recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL. He underwent the procedure at the end of April, following the club’s loss to the Boston Bruins in the first round of the playoffs.
The 27-year-old registered career-highs in goals (21) and points (41) in 2018-19. His presence back in the lineup will bring some much-needed grit up front and help lessen the loss of Mitch Marner, who will miss at least four weeks with an ankle injury suffered over the weekend.
