FANTASY KEEPER / DYNASTY RANKINGS

NOTES: This list of players and prospects who will be 25 years old or younger around the start of next season should be used to prioritize players for offseason 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.

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 2021 (e.g. Luke Hughes) and 2020 (e.g. Devon Levi) will be added to this list once they sign their entry-level contracts. This list is a collaborative effort by Pete Jensen and Anna Dua.
