NHL top 25 under 25: Ranking hockey's best young stars for 2019-20 This list is not based on potential like other prospect or draft-related stuff I've done. This is based purely on resumes, with 2018-19 season production at 5v5 amongst 25-and-under peers the foundation of the analysis. Team success and the role that player on on that successful team also played a role. I tried not to read too much into QoT and QoC, but some were too obvious to overlook. Lastly, this was finished in late September, so one or two on the list may technically not be "under 25". Edit: The honorable mentions are in no specific order.
