I get it. We do in-depth prospect features here, we do prospect film breakdowns, but what everyone really wants is the ranking. So here we go, we're going to rank the Penguins' prospects.
To qualify as a "prospect" for this exercise, there are three criteria.
- The player must be drafted by or under contract with Pittsburgh, not on an AHL deal with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
- The player must be age 25 or under.
- The player must not have played in an NHL game.
Using that criteria, we can come up with a list of 27 players.
