Can you believe that we’re in the midst of the 10th annual Eyes On The Prize Top 25 Under 25? Each year it gets more interesting as it continues to grow. This year we had a record 678 members participate!
As we get set to head into the top 10 of our 2019 Montreal Canadiens T25U25, let’s take a look at who’s already graced us with their presence.
In case you need a complete refresher, our introduction breaks down how a player is considered eligible and what you can expect from their profiles.
Before diving into the countdown, we took a look at who would not be joining us in the T25U25 this year due to either being too “old” (Charlie Lindgren) or just up and leaving us (Nikita Scherbak). We also welcomed the newbies (Nick Suzuki).
Just because they were the furthest down on the list doesn’t mean they don’t deserve recognition. These 11 players just have their work cut out for them to try to make the list next year.
Inching a little closer to actually making the Top 25, players coming in at the 35-31 range remained on the outside looking in despite their enticing skills.
It just goes to show that we’re dealing with quite the impressive prospect pool when players like Cole Fonstad, who jumped nine spots from last year, still can’t make the cut.
And the rundown of players in the official countdown, from the two who tied for 25th to the most recent reveal of the 11th-best young player.
