Top 25 Under 25: Vote on LA’s Top Young Players

This year, we want you to help us decide on our Top 25 Under 25 rankings.

Next week we will be running down the Top 25 players under the age of 25 in the Los Angeles Kings’ system, and this year, we’d like you to help rank them! If you were a reader last year, you know the drill on how the below Ranker works: if you approve of a player, think they have a bright future, etc., give them a thumbs up! If you’re doubtful of a prospect or if you don’t think they’ll make the NHL, you can go with the thumbs down, or simply don’t vote on them.

Alternatively, if you think someone is too low, vote them up, and if you think someone is too high, vote them down. Easy. In the past, when we've been torn between two players, we decide who to place higher based on who we'd rather receive in a trade for the other. For instance, Nick Shore and Adrian Kempe are very different players, but would you rather have the current bottom-six center, or the possible future top-six forward?

If you forgot how old each player is or what position they play, we’ve got that info at the bottom of this post. Anyone who is under the age of 25 at the start of the 2016-17 season is eligible. These results will be factored into our rankings, which we’ll begin revealing next week. Happy ranking!
