2020 M&G Top 25 Under 25 Introduction & Voting

We need your rankings off the Flames Top 25 Players under 25

Another season of hockey has passed, and hoo boy was it a strange one. Usually we’d full on into the first week of the regular season by now, but with COVID shutting things down and pushing everything back, we are just emerging from free agency now.

With that in mind, we figured it would be a good time to start our annual Matchsticks and Gasoline Top 25 Under 25 ranking, where we rank all players under the age of 25 in the organization. To maintain consistency from past years, we will be once again using August 1 as the cutoff date for ages, so for example: Artyom Zagidullin turned 25 on August 8 2020, but since last year he was 23 on August 1 2019, he will be considered 24 for this list thus he’s not aged out/ineligible.

As with last year, we will NEED YOUR HELP again as we ask that you fill out the following survey where you can the players in the system according to your own opinion. It uses a simple drag and drop method from best to worst. You can rank just your Top 25 or rank them all, it’s your call. Just make sure to hit submit after! I would also recommend using a computer to fill it out over a phone, although either is doable.

Our writing team will each fill out our grades and have them added to the totals. The poll will be open through Friday October 16 2020 with the list starting the following week.
