Breaking News: Zach Hyman to be traded to Edmonton Oilers with 8 year deal to be signed

Toronto Maple Leafs winger Zach Hyman met with the Edmonton Oilers earlier on Wednesday.

Hyman who is reportedly seeking a long-term contract with more than $6 million in annual salary just can’t be afforded by the Leafs.

However, Johnston reports the Maple Leafs have indicated a sign-and-trade for Hyman — which would allow the 29-year-old to sign an eight-year contract — which is on the table with a reported $5.5-6 million per year deal.

With the trade freeze lifting after 1pm ET on Thursday, expect an official announcement of the move to occur for both clubs with the Leafs getting back a draft pick.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
