Observations:

June 2017 – Nyman (pronounced Newman) is a speedy offensive winger. His explosive acceleration is arguably his best asset and he is a shifty player that hard to hit or check the puck off his stick because of his quick hands and feet. His offensive skills are above average for the OHL and he makes plays and has an excellent sense of timing to jump on loose pucks and rebounds for second chance goals.

Nyman lacks size and strength and while he plays hard defensively and physically, he often is ineffective or loses puck battels, not due to lack of compete nut because he is just out gunned physically.

Nyman had a solid offensive rookie season in the OHL and proved to be a clutch scorer for Kingston and produced for Finland internationally as well. If he can bulk up and get stronger, he could be a good value mid-round pick. Peter Harling

Fantasy Outlook: C-

Undersized, speedy goal scoring winger.
