As National League owners and the player's union discuss their various issues, future NHL players have already begun their seasons. The vast Canadian Hockey League got underway last weekend, and most European leagues are already into their second or third week. The AHL season has yet to begin, and the official roster is still in the works as players complete for spots and attention from the Panthers' front office. Not to be missed, the NCAA's various programs are set to begin soon as well.

Check out the numbers and my list for the Top 25 Players Under 25 in the organization after the jump...
