Leafs' Prospect William Nylander Scores Pretty One-Handed Goal in Sweden

The Toronto Maple Leafs have themselves a pretty thrilling prospect in 18-year-old William Nylander of Sweden. Toronto took Nylander--the son of former NHLer Michael Nylander--with the 8th overall pick last year and elected to send him back to Sweden to hone his skills. Apparently he's doing just that. Nylander has racked up 18 points in 18 games for Modo.

North American fans will get to see more of him when he comes to Canada for the World Juniors later this month.

Judging from this video, we can expect some blazing speed and a nose for the net.
