Looks like Nylander is an American

Per Kevin Oklobzija of the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle:

The Florida Panthers have found their replacement in Rochester for injured center Mark Cullen, thanks to the Washington Capitals.

Center Michael Nylander has been loaned to the Panthers/Amerks.

It’s a significant move because the Panthers will be paying most or all of Nylander’s $3 million salary.

Nylander, 38, is ultimately hoping to prove he’s still NHL worthy. A native of Stockholm, Sweden, he has played 18 pro seasons in North America.
