There's a lot of uncertainty around William Nylander. With trade rumours and contract negotiations front and center, his past play has been under a microscope. This NHL analyst made a shocking prediction for the forward's upcoming season.

Nylander is a Super Star

Nylander is unquestionably one of the NHL's best goal-scorers. He recorded 87 points last season and Matched Auston Matthews in goals with 40. While much of the focus is on the Leafs' stars Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner, Nylander has been a consistent producer every year since he joined the Leafs in 2015.
The forward also scores when it counts, with 3 overtime-winning goals last season, and 10 points in 11 playoff games last year as well.

Analyst's Prediction for Nylander

NHL Network Analyst Mike Rupp talked about just how good he thinks Nylander will be this year, predicting that he will take an even bigger step in becoming one of the NHL's best. He believes we haven't seen Nylander's best yet.
"When they need something. He's [Nylander] is a guy who steps up, which means so much for me when I'm looking at players. And I think we're starting to see more and more that this guy can take over.

They have a stud here, that I think we haven't even seen how high he can go. I don't know what the ceiling is for William Nylander" - Mike Rupp
With free agency on the horizon for Nylander, this year is a big opportunity to show the Leafs and the rest of the league just how good he is.
