The NHL is a young man's league these days, with plenty of guys who have still yet to hit their prime years dominating statistically. Ranking the best players under the age of 25 is no easy task. There are plenty of potential candidates for the top 10 or so, but these chosen ones stand out for a variety of reasons.

Points, of course, are a consideration. Many of these guys are going at a point-per-game clip on the forward ranks. The defensemen have their share of offensive ability but are also driving possession or facing top lines from the opposition every night and playing important minutes.

Some may not be around the next time you take a look because consistency is key, and many don't discover that element of their games until later in their careers. But the list is full of guys who have that potential staying power.

Missing the cut because they've already turned 25 are a half-dozen superstars such as P.K Subban, Frederik Andersen, Jamie Benn, Kevin Shattenkirk, Jakub Voracek and Max Pacioretty.
