  • Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Uninjured in car accident

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/8/18) Nylander and Maple Leafs teammate Kasperi Kapanen avoided any injuries in a minor car accident Friday, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.

    The collision reportedly transpired as the two forwards were leaving the Toronto practice rink Friday, but fortunately, they are both OK. The Leafs are now in Boston getting ready to take on the Bruins.

    Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Scoreless in return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/6/18) Nylander was held off the scoresheet Thursday against the Red Wings in his first game of the season.

    He started the game beside Auston Matthews and Patrick Marleau, his regular linemates from 2017-18. It will take a bit for Nylander to get consistency in his game, but expect increasing flashes of brilliance with each passing game. Plug him in.

    Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Will play Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/5/18) Nylander told reporters he would be in the lineup against the Red Wings on Thursday, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.

    Nylander -- who missed the first two months of the season due to a contract dispute -- is set to make his 2018-19 debut versus Detroit. Where the winger slots into the lineup likely won't be clear until the team's gameday skate, but it could be anywhere within the top nine. Frederik Gauthier may be the most likely candidate to be relegated to the press box.

    Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Might be ready Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/4/18) Nylander, who is undergoing standard medical testing after finally signing a new contract with the Maple Leafs, will not be ready to play Tuesday, Paul Hendrick of the Maple Leafs' official site reports, adding that Saturday's game against the Bruins is a realistic target for the star center's return.

    The Maple Leafs will want to see how Nylander looks in practice before playing him in a game. He's already missed 27 contests as the result of his contract standoff, so there will presumably be some rust for Nylander to shake off, even though he did work out in Sweden during the holdout. Still, the 22-year-old maintained a 0.73 points-per-game pace through his first 185 games in the NHL, and fans of the Leafs and fantasy owners alike seemingly can't wait for Nylander to return.

    Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Undergoing medical testing

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/3/18) Nylander -- who just re-signed with the Leafs on Saturday -- won't practice with the team Monday as he undergoes standard medical testing, James Mirtle of The Athletic reports.

    While coach Mike Babcock has been insistent that the team wouldn't prevent Nylander from playing right away, the fact that he won't get to practice Monday while undergoing routine preseason tests likely pushes his 2018-19 debut back to Thursday's matchup with Detroit. Fantasy owners and fans alike will no doubt be eager to see the Calgary native in action as soon as possible.
