Do you have a legitimate chance to make the NHL?

Heh...similar. I'm 24 also, been playing for years when I was younger, now mostly on and off so the skills have gone away a bit.
"Scouting Report": OK skater with decent north/south speed and balance, but poor agility and east/west. A very good wrist shot and an inconsistent slap shot (but when it's good it's really good). Above average passer but below average stickhandler. Above average body checker when I hit which is inconsistent. Very responsible defensively, play the angles well, and go to the right places. Slightly below average size though. Versatile, can play any forward position.
Prospect Grade: 0.5 D
