Hyland was not only a prolific scorer with 144 goals in 117 games to make him 5th all-time in the NHA over the second decade of the century but also, most importantly, was CLUTCH at least five times against top level competition when it mattered most:

(1) - scoring a hat trick in the NHA Wanderer's 1910 stanley cup championship final game over Ottawa;
(2) - scoring 26 goals and becoming an all-star selection in his one-year rental to the PCHL New Westminster Royals including four goals in the 1912 league championship game win over Vancouver;
(3) - scoring four goals in the 8-2 second of three game sweep win for the PCHA all-stars vs. a NHA all-stars team which sported Joe Malone, Cyclone Taylor, Odie Cleghorn, Sprague Cleghorn, Jack Darragh in what was a contest between rival leagues; http://www.gvshof.ca/news.asp?ID_ArticleIndex=43
(4) - returning to the NHA the following season, he scored 8 goals in one game in 1913 against the defending NHA stanley cup champion Bulldogs
(5) - scored 5 goals for the Wanderers in the first ever NHL game in 1917, the same game that the Canadiens' Malone also potted five, a feat accomplished by only ten more players over the next thirty years.
