There is positive trend in Extraliga in last 5 seasons. There is higher number of young scoring leaders.
However this number is still very low. There are 2 realy big problems:
1. Our best young prospects (U18 - especially forwards) leave Slovakia and play junior hockey in CHL.
2. Best young scoring leaders leave Extraliga and play pro hockey especially in czech extraliga and in KHL.
For defenders i decided to choose plus minus statistic. Question is: How many players under 25 years there are among 25 best defenders?
There is very positive trend in Extraliga in last 5 seasons. There is really higher number of young defenders that are plus minus leaders (especially in last 2 years).
In my opinion there are some really talented young defenders such as Stajnoch, Hrasko, Brejcak, Kramar, Daloga, Bohunicky, Grundling etc. Some of them plays in KHL (Sersen, P. Mikus) or in AHL (J. Mikus) yet.
For goalies i decided to choose Saves Percentage (or Saving) statistic. Question is: How many players under 25 years there are among 10 best goalies?
