    News

    Nylander (illness) will be in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Sabres, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.

    Impact

    Nylander missed Wednesday's morning skate due to an illness, but he was never in serious danger of missing the evening's matchup with Buffalo. The 22-year-old forward will slot into his usual role skating on Toronto's second line and second power-play unit against the Sabres.

    News

    Nylander is under the weather and is in doubt for Wednesday's clash with Buffalo, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports.

    Impact

    Coach Mike Babcock didn't seem too worried about Nylander's status and it seems unlikely he will want to miss a matchup against his brother Alexander, but his absence from practice is certainly worth monitoring. The 22-year-old finds himself bogged down in a 10-game goal drought, though he still racked up six helpers over that stretch.

    News

    Nylander collected two even-strength assists and five shots in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Blackhawks.

    Impact

    Nylander has been somewhat of a disappointment this campaign after signing a huge contract, recording 19 points in 42 games. The 22-year-old has a career-low 5.7 shooting percentage this season, which could mean some progression and more goals could be coming. It's worth noting that Nylander didn't receive any power-play ice time in the game, which would hurt his fantasy value if that trend continues.

    News

    Nylander picked up an assist in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Oilers.

    Impact

    The apple snapped a four-game point slump. Nylander's game is improving, but it will be next season before he fully shakes the effects of his holdout. Hold him long term, but don't overrate him short term.
