New, comments

Listen to all of the 16 podcasts surrounding the 2020 list of the top players under 25. And a partridge in a pear tree.

Congratulations to Nick Suzuki, the youngest ever number-one on Eyes On The Prize’s Top 25 Under 25!

The last six weeks have seen us work our way through the Montreal Canadiens’ young guns one by one, finally ending on a high note with Suzuki beating out Jesperi Kotkaniemi and Cole Caufield for the top spot on this year’s list.

This year, a bonus audio concept was added to, and featured beside, the standard articles. As we wrap up both the list and the foul year that was 2020, we recommend you end it on a high note by listening to our contributors discuss every angle of Montreal’s prospect pool.

To paraphrase Mott The Hoople, all the young dudes from Arvid Henrikson to the aforementioned Suzuki are included and analyzed throughout the series. The only exception is (and will remain) Patrik’s nemesis Sprague Ribinsoin, for reasons too dark to disclose in this article.

Please listen, share, and continue to enjoy both the articles and the podcasts while we prepare for a new year with, hopefully, a new NHL season waiting in the horizon.
