Harold Macarius Hyland (January 2, 1889–August 8, 1969) was a Canadian professional ice hockey forward who played for the Montreal Wanderers and Ottawa Senators. Harry was one of the great stars in the early years of professional hockey.
Born in Montreal, Quebec, Hyland first played professional ice hockey for the Montreal Shamrocks in 1908-09, joining the Montreal Wanderers in 1909-10 where the club won the Stanley Cup. He played for the Wanderers until they folded in 1918, except for one season where he joined the Pacific Coast Hockey Association (PCHA) New Westminster Royals. After the Wanderers folded, he joined the Ottawa Senators, where he was named playing coach. He retired the following year.
He once scored eight goals in a game against the Quebec Bulldogs in 1912-13. He scored the first hat trick in NHL history, playing in the league's very first game on December 19, 1917, in which Hyland's Wanderers defeated the Toronto Arenas 10-9, in Montreal.
He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1962.
