The New York Islanders are a team with a young core and that is put on display with the amount of talent they have under 25 years old.

When looking at this New York Islanders team, there’s one thing that stands out, the youth. Yes, you have older guys who are a part of your core but the Islanders window of contention isn’t really even open yet.

Just last year, Corey Pronmon ranked the Islanders (subscription required) with the fifth-best farm in the league. There’s a ton of talent on this list that hasn’t even made the big club yet, and that’s what we’re going to look at today.

We’re going to go through and get a look at the best 25 guys either on the roster or in the Islanders system that are under the age of 25. That means no Devon Toews, who already turned 25 but anyone who is 24 or younger as of today can make this list.

We’ll start with the back end and work our way to the top, so without further ado, let’s get started with our top 25 under 25!

(Thank you to Mitch for helping out with this list!)
