Nylander has 31 goals and 59 points in 68 games this season. After scoring at just a half-point-per-game pace last season, Nylander answered critics with his first 30-goal campaign in 2019-20. The 23-year-old forward scored 17 of his 59 points with the man advantage. If the NHL completes the 2019-20 regular season, Nylander has a good shot at surpassing his previous career high of 61 points.
Nylander netted a goal on five shots in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Ducks. Nylander intercepted a clearing attempt and scored at 17:00 of the third period. It would be the Maple Leafs' lone tally in the game. The 23-year-old forward now has 30 goals, 58 points, 193 shots and a minus-1 rating in 67 games this season.
Nylander scored a power-play goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Lightning. Nylander set up John Tavares' go-ahead goal in the second period, and he notched the eventual game-winner with the man advantage less than two minutes later. The 23-year-old winger has been on an absolute tear lately, as he has recorded a point in 15 of the last 17 games, totaling nine goals and nine assists in that stretch.
Nylander (illness) participated in Monday's practice, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports. It appears Nylander will be ready to rock for Tuesday's matchup against the Coyotes after missing the last two games with the illness. He'll surely slot into the top six, and he'll look to pick up where he left off before incurring this illness, as he logged a nine-game, 11-point streak before getting sick.
Nylander (illness) will miss Saturday's game against the Canadiens, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports. Toronto will go with the same lineup it had in Friday's win over Anaheim, meaning Nylander won't play. The winger is still not feeling well and will miss his second game in a row because of an illness. The Maple Leafs return home to face the Coyotes on Tuesday, and Nylander should be good by then.
