When Nylander scored his power play goal last night, he reached 9 on the season, and now sits tied for first on the Leafs rookie record books for power play goals in a rookie season - tied with Dan Daoust, Alexander Steen, and Walt Poddubny. One more and he sits alone on that list.

3 - Mitchell Marner - 37
3 - Steve Thomas - 37
