Being a young overachiever has become commonplace in the NHL.

This weekend’s 59th NHL All-Star Game will include 12 players under 25 years old—not including the rookie selections with an average age of 21.

At the season’s midway point, the top five goal scorers in the NHL are 25 or younger, led by 21-year-old Steven Stamkos with 32 goals. Twenty-two-year-old Logan Couture leads the San Jose Sharks with 21 goals, and the New York Islanders’ scoring leader is 21-year-old John Tavares with 19 goals.

And not to mention, Erik Karlsson—this year’s top vote getter and most productive NHL defenseman—is only 21 years old.

Let’s take a look at what the six youngest All-Stars will bring to the table this weekend in Ottawa.
