Nice little update on Toninato.  5th in the nation in scoring, seems to need to work with Barb Underhill a  little more but didnt we say the same thing about Joe Colbournes skating at one point and he has turned out to be a real stiff.  Could be a stud centre of the future




Colborne had 10 goals, 28 points last year as a bottom 6 centre. He is 24 years old. I guess Toninato has 4 years to surpass those totals to prevent him from becoming a stiff.

Glad to see the kid doing well. I wasn't happy about losing him (why he had to go who knows, roster casualty or some such because, you know, Orr/McLaren).

I hope he turns out well for the Flames.

On a side note, I've watched a couple of their games this year and if they keep it up, they'll have a new fan in me. Love the D with Giordano/Brodie/Wideman, and they've played a great team game so far. Hiller's been pretty good too!

0 goals so far this year....mind you he also has 6 points in 8 games.

Nylander is apparently looking good in Sweden.

12 months ago Nylander couldn't get a 4th line shift in the SHL. Now he's probably one of if not the league's best player.

I'm not surprised. He was born in Calgary after all. Good Canadian boy!  ;)

Until a better video emerges, Nylander just scored this penalty shot goal: https://vine.co/v/OhFuQ1UK730

It was hard to make him out in that video because he was so skinny. He needs to put on weight to be visible on Canadian broadcasts.

Umm. A) That was a joke. B) That's a super over-used joke nickname for any player who has good hands.

My son just texted me "Nylander has 7 points in 7 games, one off the team lead, but has only played a third of the games of anyone on his team"

That was quite a shock looking up his stats like that! Can anyone put that into some context or is that really as good as it seems?

Considering he has matched his entire point total of last year in 7 game is pretty impressive where he had 7 points in 22 games with Modo.
Must of picked up a ton of confidance in his time with the Leafs.  He is playing like a man now, the boy is getting left behind.
