But after growing up in the limelight in hockey circles because of his father's ownership of several junior teams around Toronto, flying under the radar didn't seem to bother Hyman according to the Sun-Sentinel report.
"I'd hear that I was getting ice time because your dad owns the team,'' Hyman told the Sun-Sentinel. "It gave me a harder outer shell to be able to walk away from that.''
Hyman, who is Jewish, is in Israel competing for Team Canada in the Maccabiah Games, but before leaving he opened up about playing under the microscope while growing up among other things, including being an author of two children's books.
