Alexander Nylander's Player Profile

The Draft Analyst - March 3, 2016 - "Hes an excellent skater with a deadly shot, but he can score goals from in close thanks to a ridiculous set of hands. Nylander is able to make smart decisions as he maneuvers through traffic, and his ability to stickhandle in and around a dense field of sticks and skates while knowing exactly where his linemates will be makes him an indefensible threat on the rush. Hes impossible to prepare for, as he can beat you with his playmaking or his heavy shot."

Damien Cox of Sportsnet - January 13, 2016 - "He only got to play a few shifts with his older brother at the world juniors, but showed very well in Helsinki."

Mike Morreale of NHL.com December 24, 2015 - "The son of former NHL player Michael Nylander will get the chance to play alongside his brother, William Nylander (Toronto Maple Leafs), for Sweden. The younger Nylander (6-0, 179) has displayed high-end skill and the ability to make plays at top speed with Mississauga of the OHL. Scouts like his shot and his excellent release. He has 21 goals and 47 points in 31 games,"

Future Considerations - November 2015 - "The son or former NHLer Michael Nylander, Alexander is a dynamic skating offensive catalyst that just produces points. His skating can go from effortless to shifty as he has the ability to use his edges to deke or juke through traffic with ease. Possesses soft hands and very creative puck skills plus the ability to make his teammates better with some jaw dropping passes. He is not a one trick pony however as he can also finish off plays. Top line NHL potential."
