Michigan's Zach Hyman Could Become a Free Agent

Bill Rapai

Michigan senior forward Zach Hyman had a breakout season in his final year with the Wolverines. His 22 goals and 32 assists for 54 points eclipsed the combined total in each of those three categories for his first three seasons at Michigan. Hyman was tied for fourth nationally in scoring and was named one of ten finalists for this year's Hobey Baker Award.

That incredible year has Hyman rethinking his professional future. Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reports that Hyman is considering not signing with the Florida Panthers, who drafted Hyman in the fifth round of the 2010 NHL Draft, and waiting until the August 15th deadline, when he would become an unrestricted free agent. Friedman says there is doubt that a deal gets done before the August deadline.

We ranked Hyman as the 48th-best NHL prospect in the NCAA this season.
