Toronto Maple Leafs right wing William Nylander brought his season-opening point streak to 16 games as he finished with a goal and two assists in Friday's 3-2 victory against the Red Wings. Nylander fueled the third period comeback with his line scoring three times in the final frame, giving the Maple Leafs a win in Stockholm, Sweden for the 2023 NHL Global Series. Nylander recorded a three-point game for the third time this season, bringing his season totals to 11 goals and 25 points through 16 games. Nylander becomes the 15th different player to have a point streak of at least 16 games to start a season, and he will look to keep the streak alive against the Wild on Sunday.
Toronto Maple Leafs right wing William Nylander continued his dominant start to the season as he scored two goals and added an assist in Friday's 5-4 shootout victory against the Flames. Nylander opened the scoring with a power-play goal that came three minutes into the first period, and he added a short-handed goal after an impressive takeaway to give the Maple Leafs a two-goal advantage at the beginning of the middle frame. Nylander becomes the second active player with a streak of at least 14 points to open a season joining Oilers center Connor McDavid who began the 2021-22 campaign with a 17-game point streak. Nylander has provided fantasy managers with first-round value across standard formats, with season totals of nine goals and a team-high 21 points through 14 games.
Toronto Maple Leafs right wing William Nylander finished with a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 6-3 loss against the Senators. The 27-year-old opened the scoring with a power-play goal early in the first period, and with the goal his season-opening point streak was extended to 13 games. Nylander has totaled seven goals and 18 points through 13 games, which ranks second on the team as he trails only center Auston Matthews with 19 points. Nylander has provided early-round fantasy value with his terrific start to the season and he will look to build on the success when the Maple Leafs take on the Flames on Friday night.
Toronto Maple Leafs forward William Nylander will be used as a center at the start of training camp. The 27-year-old was initially drafted as a center back in 2014, but he's mostly played on the wing for the team, featuring in the middle only in the case of injuries. "We'll commit to it for a bit here," head coach Sheldon Keefe said of the decision. "(We're) not committing to any sort of specific period of time, but just to say it's not going to be a one-off or a one-day thing or a one preseason game. We want to give it some time to come together just to see what that looks like." Nylander has previously played at center for Keefe in the AHL. Should he fit into the position, the Maple Leafs would find themselves with some incredible center depth, as Keefe could then send out Nylander, Auston Matthews, and John Tavares in different units.
