During his draft-eligible year of 2014, Nylander put up impressive numbers in Sweden’s SHL league, playing as a youngster against experienced pro players. His performance in Modo caught the eye of the Toronto Maple Leafs, who selected Nylander with the eighth overall selection in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Nylander’s dominance with Sweden wouldn’t stop there, as the young Swede has represented his country in international competition numerous times.

Notching 87 assists through his first 185 NHL games, Nylander has quickly made a name for himself as one of the league’s top playmaking talents.

His amazing rink vision and passing abilities helps the young Swede get the puck to near-impossible spots, while his quick skating provides teammates with plenty of open ice.
