Blackhawks Top 25 Under 25: The 2019-20 midseason rankings

Keep track of Second City Hockey’s list on the Blackhawks’ best players under age 25.

The Blackhawks are a little more than halfway through their 2019-20 season, so it’s time for Second City Hockey to unveil its midseason Top 25 Under 25 series.

The midseason list is grouped into rankings compromised of five players per article opposed to the daily single player profile format in August.

The biggest changes from last August are the departures of forwards Brendan Perlini and Aleksi Saarela, who were ranked Nos. 8 and 12, respectively, were traded away. Forward David Kampf, ranked No. 15, also graduated out of the rankings based on age and defenseman Carl Dahlstrom, ranked No. 22, was claimed off waivers by Winnipeg.
