Nylander's game is all about skill. Blessed with exceptional hockey sense, technical skills and overall offensive awareness. Very creative and shifty player with speed and soft hands. Furthermore, he has a great release, a good scoring touch and the ability to do the unexpected with the puck. On the downside, there's some consistency issues and intensity could be better. Some room for improvement when it comes to his defensive game as well.
