2021 Top 50 Men’s U23 Players. Stats and Notes

The Men’s top 50 list has officially concluded for the year. It is now time to look at just some random notes for the list, like what the team had the most players or which player had the highest rise. It was a fun and challenging list thanks to the pandemic. For some players, large judgment calls had to be made given the limited amount of games for some teams. The goal this year was as well to give more credit to goaltenders, but it is hard to rank them in Poland given the sparse opportunities available for them. We don’t see many goalies in the PHL under the age of U23, not a lot of players abroad, and to top it off the MHL is not an easy place to watch or ever find statistical trends.
