Each team has already played roughly 10 games this season, which means that the season is about 20 percent over.
With that in mind, here is an early season power ranking of the top 25 players of the season thus far. A player's past performance is not a major factor in compiling this list.
Keep in mind this is not just a list of the top 25 scorers in the league, although plenty of highly productive players are included. We have defensemen and goalies in this list, so overall performance is considered.
Also remember that these are the best 25 players this season so far. There are still nearly three months of hockey to be played. Some of these players will continue to shine, others are just off to hot starts and will fall back to the pack.
