William Nylander played all 82 games for the Maple Leafs in the regular season, but when they need him most, his status is now seemingly up in the air.

Heading into their first round playoff matchup against the Boston Bruins, there were questions over the health of some Maple Leafs players, and now superstar forward William Nylander is added to that group. After playing all 82 games this season, Nylander has now mysteriously missed practice on Friday, with Head Coach Sheldon Keefe giving a shock answer when asked about his availability for game one.

Toronto head coach Sheldon Keefe declared William Nylander and Bobby McMann, who did not practice today, as "possibilities" for Game 1.




In 11 playoff games a season ago, Nylander was one of the Leafs best contributors with 10 points, and if they're to get through the tough test of the Boston Bruins in this one, they will need him and the rest of the team as healthy as they can be.
