Coach Mike Babcock said Hyman (knee) is still a few weeks away from getting back into action, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports.
Babcock didn't allude to a specific timeline, but he was initially slated to return in late October after undergoing surgery to repair a torn ACL. There's no reason to think that's not a realistic time frame since Hyman has been skating since August. The 27-year-old will need to take contact in practice before that can happen. Fantasy owners should beware that Hyman may end up on the third line, and it's unclear if this injury will hamper his abilities going forward.
Hyman (knee) was designated for injured reserve Monday.
Hyman is still recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in late April. The initial timeline had Hyman coming back in late October, so his placement on injured reserve isn't surprising. Hyman has been skating, though, so he's making progress in his rehab and may make a quicker return than expected. The 27-year-old winger posted 41 points in 71 games last year, and he should have a significant role once he's back at full speed.
