Despite injuries, Zach Hyman put together his most complete season as a Leaf

There was probably an article somewhere titled: Zach Hyman? Sink or swim?
Boy, he swam this year. I doubt there’s much debate this was his best year as a Leaf of his three full years.
I think this was my favourite goal of the season. Not just by Hyman, but by any player.
After falling behind 3-0 in the game against Montreal, Hyman’s 4-3 goal with just under two minutes left clinched the Leafs’ seventh consecutive victory over the Canadiens.  The Leafs, including Hyman, scored two more empty netters to make it a 6-3 score.
Those goals were two of 21 that Hyman scored this season, a career high, while picking up 20 assists, en route to 41 points, also a career high. Was that sentence great? No, but you got the point anyway. Zach Hyman had a pretty good year overall, so let’s talk about it.
Season recap:
Hyman had a knack for coming up big at a few times this year, scoring four game-winners. Besides the Montreal goal, he also scored this beauty against Pittsburgh.
