  • Nylander will center the third line for Game 3 with Nazem Kadri out, reports TSN.ca. Nylander will skate between Patrick Marleau and Connor Brown with Kadri in limbo. He'll need to step up after a lackluster performance in Game 2 where a lazy turnover behind the Leafs' goal resulted in an easy goal by Boston's Danton Heinen. "[Nylander's] got to play hard. It's real simple," said coach Mike Babcock on Monday. "He just has to compete at a high level with and without the puck."

  • Nylander scored a goal in the last game of the season Saturday in Montreal. He finished the season with seven goals and 27 points in 54 games. Nylander never got on track after holding out for a significant chunk of the season in a contract impasse. So it's hard to believe he'll find his mojo in the playoffs. There are stronger fantasy options if your hopes are pinned on the Leafs.

  • Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Good to go
    By RotoWire Staff

    Nylander (illness) will be in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Sabres, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports. Nylander missed Wednesday's morning skate due to an illness, but he was never in serious danger of missing the evening's matchup with Buffalo. The 22-year-old forward will slot into his usual role skating on Toronto's second line and second power-play unit against the Sabres.

    By RotoWire Staff

    Nylander is under the weather and is in doubt for Wednesday's clash with Buffalo, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports. Coach Mike Babcock didn't seem too worried about Nylander's status and it seems unlikely he will want to miss a matchup against his brother Alexander, but his absence from practice is certainly worth monitoring. The 22-year-old finds himself bogged down in a 10-game goal drought, though he still racked up six helpers over that stretch.

  • Nylander collected two even-strength assists and five shots in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Blackhawks. Nylander has been somewhat of a disappointment this campaign after signing a huge contract, recording 19 points in 42 games. The 22-year-old has a career-low 5.7 shooting percentage this season, which could mean some progression and more goals could be coming. It's worth noting that Nylander didn't receive any power-play ice time in the game, which would hurt his fantasy value if that trend continues.
