Five things learned from Day 2 of World Juniors

Sunday, 12.27.2015 / 5:24 PM / 2016 World Junior Championship

Adam Kimelman - Deputy Managing Editor

Sweden forward William Nylander won't play Monday against the United States (9 a.m. ET; NHLN) because of a head injury, but a team doctor said Sunday there's hope the Toronto Maple Leafs prospect will play again at some point during the 2016 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Nylander left Sweden's 8-3 win Saturday against Switzerland at 15:37 of the first period after a check to the head by Switzerland forward Chris Egli. Egli received a game misconduct for the hit, and Sunday he received a three-game suspension from the World Junior Championship Disciplinary Panel.

"[Nylander] is walking around. He's at the hotel. Let's see how he does [Monday]," Sweden team doctor Per Adolf Bergsten told TSN on Sunday. "We'll take it day by day. Today is a rest day. He can't skate tomorrow. Hopefully he'll be back in the tournament. We have a timeline but I can't tell you what it is."

Sweden forward Alexander Nylander, William's brother and an A-rated prospect for the 2016 NHL Draft, said in a video published by TSN: "He's feeling better today. Hopefully he can recover and be back as soon as possible. … Hopefully he can be back for [the quarterfinals]."
