FANTASY KEEPER / DYNASTY RANKINGS

NOTES: This list of players and prospects who will be 25 years old or younger at the start of this season should be used to prioritize players for fantasy roster decisions and drafts in keeper and dynasty leagues. Value has been quantified based on factors including but not limited to age, draft position and year, team security, projected long-term lineup placement and more. Rookies have been included on this list.

Some valuable players who will turn 26 years old before the start of next season (e.g. David Pastrnak, Kevin Fiala, Sam Bennett, William Nylander, Dylan Larkin, Alex Tuch, Adrian Kempe) or who are currently 26 (e.g. Nathan MacKinnon, Leon Draisaitl, Igor Shesterkin, Aleksander Barkov, Aaron Ekblad, Ilya Sorokin, Brayden Point, Juuse Saros, Thatcher Demko, Nikolaj Ehlers, Sam Reinhart, Pavel Buchnevich) should also be prioritized in keeper and dynasty leagues but have been excluded from this list.

Some notable NHL Draft picks from 2022 (e.g. Logan Cooley) and 2021 (e.g. Luke Hughes) will be added to this list once they sign their entry-level contracts. Any other top prospects (e.g. Iaroslav Askarov, Jesper Wallstedt, Sebastian Cossa, Kaiden Guhle, Simon Nemec, Aatu Raty) could join the rankings if they make their rosters out of training camp.

This list is a collaborative effort by Pete Jensen and Anna Dua.
