Have your say in ranking the top-25 under 25

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Colorado Avalanche at San Jose Sharks Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

It’s that time of year again. With the draft behind us, and a new crop of youngsters added to the depth chart, we are set to begin our Top 25 Under 25 series, by bringing you profiles on all 25 of those players individually. For most teams, this list will be mainly filled with prospects, the Colorado Avalanche don’t fall into that category. Thanks to come incredible work by Joe Sakic and the front office, the Avs have a group of youngsters at the NHL level that is the envy of nearly every other team in the league. This means that a lot of the players at the top of the T25U25 list are already core members of a team that not only made the playoffs, but was able to knock off the number one seed in the Western Conference.

Last year’s final ranking was an interesting on that in hindsight could use a little tweaking.

Here’s how the top-10 finished:

  1. Nathan MacKinnon
  2. Mikko Rantanen
  3. Samuel Girard
  4. Tyson Jost
  5. Cale Makar
  6. Nikita Zadorov
  7. Martin Kaut
  8. Alexander Kerfoot
  9. Conor Timmins
  10. Shane Bowers

MacKinnon and Rantanen as one and two was a no brainer but something tells me Girard and Jost won’t be rounding out the top-4 this year.

Once again we’d like to open up the voting to the readers. We want your help to rank this incredibly talented group.
