William Nylander Married, Family, Net Worth
Swedish ice hockey player William Nylander rose to fame in the world of hockey at a mere age of 16. He was lucky enough to debut in the Swedish Hockey league-Allsvenskan alongside his hockey star father, Michael Nylander in February 2013.
The very same year, he won a gold medal for representing Sweden at the World U-17 Hockey Tournament.
Following the success, he was drafted as the eighth overall in the first round by Toronto Maple Leafs at the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.
Family, Parents, Age
William - age 23 - was born on 1 May 1996 in Calgary, Canada to former professional ice hockey player father Michael Nylander and mother, Camilla. He is the eldest among his parents' six children.
In the Nylander family, sports is a family affair. William is not the only sports star in the family. His younger brother Alexander Nylander is also a rising star in hockey - who was drafted by the Buffalo Sabres in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.
The two brothers would always argue about who would get picked higher; but coincidentally, Alex also got selected in the eight-slot.

Just like the two brothers, their sister Stephanie is also into sports. However, unlike her brothers, Stephanie chose tennis and is aiming just as high as her brothers reached in hockey.
