2016 Draft Central Player Profile: Alexander Nylander

by Chris Lund / Toronto Maple Leafs

Central Scouting on Nylander
Director of NHL Central Scouting Dan Marr:

“Nylander is a dynamic player who is an elite skater with a creative skill-set. He has very good offensive hockey sense allowing him to create scoring chances in a variety of ways while making plays at top speed. His offensive instincts make him extremely dangerous in one-on-one situations and a scoring threat every time he is on the ice.”

Video Highlights
Watch Nylander take a great feed from Leafs prospect Dmytro Timashov and score a beauty at the 2016 World Juniors.
