According to a source, Alex Nylander will be joining the Mississauga Steelheads for the upcoming OHL Season.

“It’s done and it’s been done for a while now,” said the source.

Nylander was selected 12th overall by the Steelheads in this year’s CHL Import Draft and is the younger brother of Toronto Maple Leafs’ prospect, William Nylander, who is also property of the Mississauga Steelheads by way of the 2014 CHL Import Draft.

While William’s time to join the Steelheads has come and gone, Alex may not be the only Nylander joining the Steelheads. Reports indicate longtime NHLer Michael Nylander may be joining the Steelheads in some sort of coaching capacity. My source would not confirm nor deny the rumour.

A Nylander dawning a Steelheads uniform next season though, is as good as done.
