Toronto Maple Leafs forward William Nylander has entered some elite company, extending his incredible point streak this season to a 17th straight game on Sunday morning.
Nylander, who is playing in his home country of Sweden during the National Hockey League's Global Series, picked up an assist on a goal from Maple Leafs star forward Auston Matthews.
Nylander now joins truly elite company in NHL history, with today's tally putting him in a 4-way tie for the 8th longest point streak to start a season in NHL history. Nylander will share that spot with former Detroit Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg, Edmonton Oilers captain Connor McDavid and former Buffalo Sabres forward Dave Andreychuk, should Nylander extend his streak to an 18th game he would join former NHL greats Marcel Dion and Bill Cowley in a 3 way tie for 6th.
Among active players in the NHL today, only Connor McDavid and William Nylander have managed to start the season with 17 straight games with at least a point.
