41. Mikko Rantanen

Drafted 10th overall in 2015, Mikko Rantanen came with high expectations after a tremendous junior career in Finland.  Rantanen didn’t play much with the big club as a rookie, as he played mostly in the AHL, where he was the co-winner of the Rookie of the Year.  Rantanen would win a permanent roster spot the year after, and he would score 38 Points, but afterward, he would begin his ascent to greatness.  

In the last two seasons, Rantanen scored 84 and 87 Points respectively and was an All-Star last year, the first of what could be many for the young sensation.  As of this writing, Rantanen is in his fifth year with Colorado and is one of the top players under 25 in the game.
