Let’s watch all of William Nylander’s 31 goals from this season

William Nylander’s 2018-19 season was a complete nightmare. But this year? That was a different story.

Nylander didn’t endear himself to fans last season. After sitting out the first two months of the season due to a contract holdout, Nylander finally inked a deal at the last possible moment and returned to the team in December. When he did finally return, Nylander looked like he was a step behind his usual dynamic self. He ended up scoring seven goals and 27 points in 54 games, his least productive season since breaking into the league.
After a mediocre performance on the ice followed his contract holdout, Nylander had a big season ahead of him to remind the fanbase how good he actually was. He did exactly that this year.

In this instance, Rogers is using the Blue Jays, a key part of their brand, to sway people into purchasing their streaming service, Sportsnet Now. Why would you pay to watch only the things Sportsnet offers when you can pay to watch literally all of the baseball games instead? If you’re a baseball fan, you’d obviously go the MLB.tv route for your streaming. But, now that the Jays are blacked out in Canada if you want to watch the …
