Alex Galchenyuk played all of eight OHL and four international games during his draft year, but the Canadiens still picked him 3rd overall. That's also where he lands on our Top 25 Canadiens Under 25 list.
Dalton Thrower, fresh off being drafted 51st overall in 2012, makes his debut on EOTP's Top 25 Under 25 at #16. The tough, all-round defender has a lot to like about his game, but might be too aggressive.
Eyes on the Prize kicks off our Top 25 Under 25 countdown with Gabriel Dumont, who makes the final cut for the third straight year. The gritty defensive center made his NHL debut in 2011-12, and will look to build on that accomplishment in 2012-13.
