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?

Right now, it's just a hot start, but, if he keeps it up . . . being near a point per game in the SEL at his age is very very impressive.

For the record, Nylander has 7 points in 5 games, not 7 games.

Yeah, of the players in the SEL last season who were near or above PPG by the end of the season, none were under 25 years old.

Don't forget our famed 7th round pick Andreas Johnson.  7G 4A in 15 games for Frolunda.

with our young swede defensemen coming along and Nylander and Johnson showing so much promise, I can still be excited about the Leafs….Especially with Babcock to coach them.
I better stop saying that.

Nylander-TOR with 2 more points today. Nice goal around 1:40, assist at 2:40 http://www.shl.se/shl-arena/38953/

Also scored a goal in the shootout, but that isn't in the video.

Depending on where the Leafs finish in the standings and how far he climbs in the draft rankings, keep your eyes on Mitch Marner in London.  This kid is really good.

Me neither, and I still can't get my head around how a Swedish team got that name.

I thought it was interesting that the 3rd hilight clip had him scoring on the Swedish team with the English name 'Lakers'.  Vaxjo Lakers has no 'ring' to it.
