- At No. 7 of our 2021 Top 25 Under 25, we have newcomer and netminder Jesper Wallstedt. [Hockey Wilderness]
- Jordan Greenway is one spot ahead at No. 6 of our Top 25 Under 25 as well, keeping his spot after sticking to the dominant two-way line with Marcus Foligno and Joel Eriksson Ek. We’ll see where that goes this season... [Hockey Wilderness]
