Predicting the Most Improved Players for the 2015-16 NHL Season

July 15th, 2015 by Carol Schram Leave a reply »
As the NHL offseason winds into the dog days of summer, transactions among teams start to slow to a trickle. During their downtime, players rest their bones, spend time with their families and friends and hit the gym in an effort to come back better than ever next year.

When 2015-16 gets underway, expect to see the most improved performances of the new season coming from the 25-and-under set. Some will be reclamation projects looking to make the most of what might be their last chance at ice hockey's top level, while others will be high-level prospects realizing their potential and a select few young guns will take aim at superstar status.

In an effort to keep a reasonably level playing field, this slideshow does not consider raw rookies without NHL experience for the title of "most improved." 

The focus here is on players who will take the biggest steps forward in their games next season—all around the ice—to be a part of the NHL's 2015-16 All-Improved Team.

Who else do think will surprise us with their play next season?
