Scouting Report
Assets: Like his father, Michael Nylander, he has excellent playmaking skills. However, he is also a better skater than his dad and can score more goals, too (thanks to a great wrister). Can play either wing or center.
Flaws: Is undersized for the National Hockey League game, so he must continue to get stronger in order to maximize his scoring output at the highest level. Also, he must work on his play without the puck.
Career Potential: Dynamic, versatile playmaker with upside.
