As the NHL season approaches its midpoint, it's time to review the performance of Zach Hyman, the gritty forward of the Edmonton Oilers. Hyman has been a key player for the Oilers since he joined the team in 2021, and this season he has continued to be a valuable asset as the teams scoring leader.

Let's start with the basics. Hyman has played in 31 games this season, recording 20 goals and 13 assists for 33 points. He has also averaged 19:35 minutes of ice time per game and has been a valuable asset on the powerplay, contributing with 6 goals and 2 assists.

But beyond the numbers, Hyman has shown his usual brand of hard work and tenacity on the ice. He has been a valuable member of the Oilers' top line, providing a physical presence and creating space for his linemates, Connor McDavid and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. He has also been a reliable forechecker and backchecker, using his speed and strength to disrupt opposing teams' plays.

One area where Hyman has been probably the best on the team is in his offensive consistency. He has had a few cold streaks, but asides from that he has played solid the whole year even when the team was struggling at the start.

Overall, I would give Hyman a A for his performance so far this season. While he has been one of the most valuable players for the Oilers, leading the team in goals is quite an accomplishment considering he plays on the same team as Draisaitl and McDavid. However, given his hard-working style of play and his ability to step up in big games, he has shown that he is an important player for the team.

As the Oilers look to make a deep playoff run this season, Hyman will be a key player for the team. If he can continue to play his hard-working style of hockey while keeping his offensive consistency, he will be a valuable asset for the team in all situations. With his dedication to the game and his willingness to do whatever it takes to help his team win, the sky is truly the limit for Zach Hyman.
