Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Records first 30-goal season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Puts up one of each
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nylander (illness) participated in Monday's practice, Kristen Shilton of 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.

Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Officially ruled out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Not traveling with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nylander (illness) won't travel with the team for Saturday's game in Montreal, Kristen Shilton of reports.

Head coach Sheldon Keefe wouldn't rule Nylander out completely, suggesting he could make the short trip Saturday morning and be ready to go by game time. However, the fact that he's staying behind indicates that he shouldn't be considered likely to play. A confirmation either way on Nylander's status should be available prior to the start of the contest.

Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Late scratch Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nylander (illness) won't play Friday against Anaheim.

With Nylander under the weather, Andreas Johnsson will get bumped up to Toronto's top line against the Ducks. The 23-year-old forward won't have to wait long for his next chance to play, as the Maple Leafs will be right back at it Saturday against Montreal.

Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Scores to keep point streak alive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nylander extended his point streak to eight games with a goal on three shots in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Panthers.

Nylander put the Maple Leafs on top 2-1 with 55 seconds left in the second period when he re-directed an Andreas Johnsson feed. It was Nylander's 25th goal of the season, extending a career high. The 23-year-old has six goals and four assists during his streak and he's lit the lamp in six of his last seven outings.

Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Point streak at seven games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nylander picked up a power-play assist in Saturday's 2-1 overtime victory over the Senators.

Nylander had his five-game goal streak end, but a seven-game point streak remains. He has nine points (five goals, four assists) in that span. Nylander's breakout season continues -- the young winger has 47 points (24 goals, 23 assists) in 52 games, in large part because he's moved from the perimeter to the dirty areas of the offensive zone.

Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Extends point streak to five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nylander scored a goal and an assist with four shots in a 5-2 win over Nashville on Monday.

Nylander is riding a five-game point streak and has lit the lamp in each of the last four. In fact, he has 12 goals in his last 15 games and has certainly put a three-goal month of October in the rearview mirror. If there were any questions surrounding Nylander after he struggled through a seven-goal, 27-point campaign in 2018-19, he has answered all of them. His goal tonight was his 23rd of the season -- already a new career high -- and he boasts 45 points in 50 games.

Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Point streak at four games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nylander scored a goal in a 6-2 loss to Chicago on Saturday.

The Maple Leafs may have lost, but Willie stretched his point streak to four games. Nylander has three goals and two assists during his point streak and has 43 points, including 22 goals, in 49 games on the season. This is his breakout; enjoy the ride.

Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Four points in last three games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nylander scored the Leafs' only goal in a 2-1 shootout loss to the Flames on Thursday night.

Willie is on a three-game, four-point (two goals, two assists) streak. He has 42 points (21 goals, 21 assists) in 48 games, a pace that would see him top 70 points for the first time this season. Nylander has found chemistry with John Tavares of late and the duo has looked sharp. Keep trotting him out there.

Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Puts on shooting gallery in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nylander registered an assist and a game-high nine shots on goal in Sunday's 8-4 loss to the Panthers.

Nylander's lack of scoring success was not without effort -- the 23-year-old's nine shots were three more than he'd had in any other game this season. Despite that, he also went minus-4 Sunday, dropping him to an even plus-minus rating with 39 points in 46 contests.

Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Has 11 points on five-game streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nylander scored two goals and added an assist in Thursday's 6-3 win over Winnipeg.

The snipes stretched his goal streak to five games (six goals, five assists). Nylander has been hotter than hot playing alongside John Tavares. Take advantage.

Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Stays hot versus Wild
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nylander had two points in a 4-1 win over Minnesota on Tuesday.

Nylander has now produced eight points over his last four contests, including goals in each game. After a rough 2018-19 campaign, the 23-year-old Swede has dominated to the tune of 35 points in 41 games this season. With two or more points in three straight contests, Nylander will try for four in a row Thursday in Winnipeg.

Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Hot streak continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nylander scored a goal and added an assist Saturday in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Rangers.

He's riding a three-game, six-point streak and he has 10 points (five goals, five assists) in his last six games. Nylander has looked explosive beside both John Tavares and Auston Matthews, and his value is rising.

Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Three points including game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nylander scored the game-winner in overtime and added two assists, one on the power play, in Friday's 5-4 victory over the Devils.

After setting up John Tavares for the tying goal midway through the third period with the man advantage, Nylander got credit for the winner when he stripped Jack Hughes of the puck at the Devils' blue line, skated in and cut to the front of the net, then lost the handle and watched Damon Severson accidentally bat the puck behind MacKenzie Blackwood as he tried to clear it. It's Nylander's second three-point performance in the last four games, and on the year the 23-year-old now has 15 goals and 31 points through 39 contests.

Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Benched by coach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nylander was benched for part of Saturday's game.

His play was all over the place and he looked uninvolved on the backcheck. So Leafs' coach Sheldon Keefe limited Nylander to just three shifts in the second period, none in the final 13 minutes. It's a bit of a gut punch for Willie, who exploded offensively the night before. Let's hope this lights a fire for the talented winger.

Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Explodes offensively
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nylander scored two goals, including the game-winner, and added an assist in Friday's 6-3 win over the Rangers.

Willie had just three points in his previous nine games, but this explosion might be just what the doctor ordered. Nylander has extraordinary talent and he's on pace to equal his 61-point pace from each of the last two years. And one of these days, he'll explode offensively. Stay patient.

Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Inner sniper emerging
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nylander notched his 10th goal of the season in Saturday's 2-1 overtime win over Buffalo.

He's on a bit of a roll -- Nylander has five points, including two goals, in his last five games. His game has shown growth this season and he's actually on pace for close to 30 goals. Nylander may still deliver in the mid-60s by season's end, but that jump in sniping is a big deal.
