Zach Hyman feels your pain, Leafs Nation.

Once a fan of the Maple Leafs and now one of team’s hardest workers, Hyman gets the frustration being felt in the wake of another post-season failure.

“100%, I think it’s warranted, it’s justified,” Hyman said. “This loss is probably the hardest for me. Every year you get a year older, you become more part of the team, you grow up with the team.

“There is so much hope and you see a path to being successful and that’s when it’s really frustrating, is when you can envision yourself and our team moving on and making a run.

“From a fan point of view, I can see why it’s extremely frustrating. I feel the same way.”

Hyman will be eligible for unrestricted free agency after the 2020-21 season.

“I haven’t even thought about it,” Hyman said. “I want to be here and playing for Toronto. I love being here and being with these guys.”
