Now that the 2015 Top 25 Under 25 profiles are over, it's time to take a look at the changes from the previous rankings.

The top three were untouched, as Alex Galchenyuk repeated as champion, with Brendan Gallagher and Nathan Beaulieu holding on to their respective positions.

The biggest jump from 2014 was Daniel Carr, who climbed all the way from 28 to 16. Michael McCarron was another prospect who saw a giant leap in his ranking, going from 21 to the top 10.  Jeremy Gregoire and Charles Hudon also saw an impressive improvement, rising five spots.

Dalton Thrower saw the biggest fall from grace, likely due to his demotion to the ECHL last year. The top 10 saw some big changes, with Jarred Tinordi losing five spots on his previous ranking, and Michael Bournival dropping six.
