Along with Lucas Thaler, the following players are nominated for the election:
Senna Peeters | 21 | Forward | HC Innsbruck
Oskar Maier | 21 | Forward | Pioneers Vorarlberg
Tobias Sablattnig | 20 | Defenseman | EC-KAC
Throughout the season, five monthly winners will be determined. For this purpose, four players will be nominated each month who will stand for election. Due to the few game days in September, the first two months have been combined into one election. The five monthly winners will then compete in April 2024 for the title of Young Star of the Season 2023/24.
The election consists of three components: in addition to the fan voting on the league homepage, the PULS 24 experts and journalists will also cast their votes. If two or more players receive the same number of votes, they will be ranked according to the result of the fan vote.
