Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reported Monday that the team was leaning toward holding the 24-year-old out of the game for disciplinary reasons.
Nylander just returned from a five-game absence after he self-reported a brief meeting with someone who later showed symptoms of having COVID-19.
The forward self-isolated and tested negative for nine straight days before returning to the lineup Sunday in Vancouver. He scored a goal and logged 21 minutes in the 3-2 overtime loss to the Canucks.
Nylander has 14 goals and 18 assists in 40 games on the season.
