Nylander scored two goals and added an assist during Monday's 4-3 win over Tampa Bay. Now up to five goals and eight assists through his past 10 games, Nylander is upping his game heading into the fantasy stretch drive. He sports a rock-solid 2.8 points per 60 minutes for the campaign and should continue to be viewed as a high-end asset while flanking Auston Matthews in all situations.
Nylander scored two goals, added an assist and registered five shots during Monday's 7-4 win over Anaheim. The 21-year-old winger has now marked the scoresheet in six of his past seven games for three tallies and six assists. The heater has Nylander up to 12 goals and 41 points through 55 games for the campaign, and he's now back on track to post his second consecutive 60-point showing. Continue to view the Swedish winger as a solid option in the majority of fantasy settings.
Nylander stretched his point streak to five games and six points with an assist in Thursday's game. It's widely believed that Willie's sophomore season is a step back from his rookie excellence. But he's on almost the same pace for points and has dramatically improved his plus-minus (plus-18 in 53 games vs minus-3 in 81 games in 2016-17). Nylander's skill is undeniable. He's a solid target in keeper formats for those looking to build assets. Nylander's owner might be taking the same glass half-empty view as some fans and that will work to your advantage.
Nylander contributed a pair of assists in Thursday's win over the Stars. Nylander enters the NHL All-Star break riding a three-game point streak, having been held off the scoresheet just four times in the month of January. The 21-year-old has notched 10 goals and 36 points through 51 games and is sporting a tidy plus-13 rating. Considering he continues to skate alongside Auston Matthews at even strength and on the power play, Nylander should continue being a reliable source of fantasy production.
Nylander got back on the scoresheet with the primary assist on an Auston Matthews goal in the second period of a 4-2 loss to Colorado on Monday. Nylander was in a bit of a slump after going scoreless in his past three games, but he got back to what he does best: finding Matthews to set up a score. He's well off his pace from last year with just 33 points in 49 games, but if Matthews stays healthy, stronger numbers might be on the horizon for Nylander.
