Nevertheless, there is quite a bit of William Nylander girlfriend gossip. If you're curious, a few names in the rumour mill are Philippa Soderberg and Penny Liarakos.

But, again, those are rumours. On his Instagram, William Nylander once set fans into a frenzy when he posted a picture of himself walking dogs with a girl.

The 2021 photo didn't show his friend's face, however, and that's about as close as Nylander has come to introducing a special someone.

William Nylander is in his mid-20s, so he still has plenty of time to figure out his life off the ice.

The Swedish NHL star was actually born in Calgary, Alberta, but grew up in the US and Sweden. Like fellow NHLer Elias Pettersson, Nylander represents Sweden in international hockey competitions.
