Renowned insider Elliotte Friedman revealed the full details of William Nylander's injury, which kept him out of the first three playoff games.

After the Leafs announced Nylander's absence due to injury, speculation ran rampant in the Leafs market.
Friedman confirmed on Sportsnet that Nylander had a severe migraine, prompting doctors to test him for a concussion. He mentioned that one reason for the secrecy surrounding Nylander's situation is the difficulty in diagnosing whether it's a migraine, concussion, or another related issue.
"According to multiple sources, William Nylander's absence from the Toronto lineup has to do with a migraine so severe that team doctors tested to see if he suffered a concussion. One of the reasons for the secrecy around his situation is that an actual diagnosis has been hard to come by, whether it is a migraine, a concussion or something else that could affect that area."

Friedman also noted that in 2022, Nylander had switched to a tinted visor to help with "eye migraines" he experienced during previous seasons.
According to the American Migraine Foundation, migraines typically last one to two days, but with accompanying symptoms, recovery can extend to over a week in some cases.
This suggests Nylander might be back for game four against the Bruins on Saturday.
