TORONTO - Hair stylists and Leafs fans can rejoice at the news William Nylander has signed an NHL entry level contract.

Toronto’s first round pick in the 2014 draft, with a flair on the ice and a distinctive blonde mane, agreed to the deal Monday afternoon.

“Not only does William bring a high level of speed and skill to his game, but he has a very strong character on and off the ice,” general manager Dave Nonis said in a release. “We believe he has a very bright future and are happy to have him signed to his first NHL contract.”
