Nylander Comments On His Absence From World Championships

After William Nylander missed out on the World Championships many believed it was due to his brother Alex. Alex would've likely lost his spot in the lineup had William shown up and played. Now according to William, this was not the case.
Interviewer: "Was there any truth in the information that you did not want to push out Alexander?"

Nylander: "No, there wasn't."

I: "What was it about then?"

N: "I will not say."

I: "Alexander said during the World Cup that you were heard every day, what did you talk about most during those days?"

N: "I was prepared to come. That was what the conversation was about. Then there was trouble."

I: "A lot of people get curious when you say "trouble", what does that mean? Many will probably continue to speculate now."

N: "You can do that."

Nylander's Trouble

While this does confirm that William didn't sit out on account of his brother it does not explain why he did. As is said in the interview this has led to a lot of speculation about what trouble could have come up.
While we may never know the true reasons many fan theories will likely come out in the coming weeks. It will be interesting to see if William participates in any upcoming events with the Swedish national team especially now that the NHL seems to be getting closer to a return to the Olympics.
