Darren Dreger reveals William Nylander's injury status ahead of Game 1

Published April 20, 2024 at 11:38

William Nylander missed practice yesterday and was reported as uncertain whether he would be in the lineup for Game 1 against the Bruins. Now, Darren Dreger has revealed more details on his injury.

In breaking news, Darren Dreger took to X.com to share that William Nylander is dealing with a 'tweak' that he felt on the Leafs off day prior to the post-season beginning. Dreger reports that it is not something he was playing through at the end of the season and that his status for tonight's game is still questionable.

William Nylander's availability tonight remains uncertain. It's believed he felt something on the off day after the last game. Likely a «tweak» but not something he was playing with. Remains questionable for game 1.

The Leafs have been keeping their cards extremely close to their chest regarding their anticipated lineup for tonight's first matchup of the series. If Nylander is out, that will be a massive blow to the Leafs, though, as he has been incredible this year and historically performed well in the playoffs.

More details to come as they are revealed.
