Rasmus Dahlin, one of the NHL's best defensemen, discussed the Maple Leafs in his pre-game interview ahead of tonight's matchup.

He revealed which player in Toronto is the toughest and scariest to play against.

His answer surprised many fans. Here's what he said:

"Oh, he's scary to play against. He's so fast, but he's so shifty. There are so many times you think you have him, but you don't. He's one of the hardest players to play against in this league." - Dahlin on Nylander

Many might have expected to hear names like Ryan Reaves or Auston Matthews, but there's another factor that could explain Dahlin's answer.

Dahlin and Nylander, both Swedish, have played together on several occasions on the international stage.

The defenseman's response underscores the respect he holds for Nylander.
