Draft stuff: Nylander nets first

William Nylander checked into the draft discussion Saturday, scoring the first goal of his SHL career as MODO defeated AIK 2-1. The No. 2 rated European skater on Central Scouting's midterm rankings, Nylander showed the hands and moves of a natural goal scorer with a twitch fake and finish to give MODO to the 1-0 lead at 13:05 of the middle period.

Nylander's milestone marker comes in his 13th SHL contest. The 17-year old pro had previously scored 11 times in 29 games in Sweden's second division with Rogle and Sodertalje.
