Blackhawks prospect Adam Boqvist commented on the post with two fire emojis.

An interesting wrinkle to Nylander’s jersey number is it’s the same one is father, Michael Nylander, worn with the Blackhawks from 1999-2003. Michael Nylander was only the second player to have donned the number in franchise history after Bernie Nicholls (1995-96). No player has worn it since.
