The 2017-18 NHL campaign is fast-approaching and there's certainly a great buzz surrounding the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Not only did the team come close to upsetting the Washington Capitals in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but all the rookies who burst onto the scene last year are only going to get better. 

One of those rookies was William Nylander, who exploded for 22 goals and 61 points in his first year with the club. While he dazzled for the Leafs, Nylander was also a force for Team Sweden on the world stage. His busy 2016-17 hockey season makes for one fantastic highlight reel. 

This compilation was put together by YouTube user  SK Hockey and highlights all of the rookies' nasty plays from the past year. 

While Matthews and Marner certainly get most of the media attention, Nylander is one to watch in the coming years.
