After leaving the season earlier than hoped for, William Nylander is making highlight reel plays for Team Sweden over in the IIHF World Championships.
He’s clearly prepping for a giant year in the 2019-20 season and gaining the hockey world’s attention over in Slovakia certainly helps. Nylander currently leads the tournament in points, with seven in just three games for his country — including a four-point performance Monday afternoon against Norway.
The forward scored a total 27 points in 54 games for the Maple Leafs this season, but starting his season late and not training with the team certainly took its toll on the player’s production.
In this tournament so far though, he has a total of two goals and eight points in just three games — including a monster five-point performance against Norway.
But nevertheless Nylander is back to his old ways of making everyone’s jaw hit the floor with what he can do in the offensive zone.
First of all – William Nylander. 2nd of all – What a save… but it’s not a save. Glove is was past the line to give Sweden another goal. pic.twitter.com/KArx82bJo1
