That height and weight don't match up. The kid needs to hit the gym hard.

RussianRocket10 06-30-2013 08:47 PM

155 pounds? Wow. :laugh:

CS 06-30-2013 08:48 PM

Toothpick. Pretty sure he's closer to 170.

Still not exactly matching up though.

Roo Mad Bro 06-30-2013 08:48 PM

The phrase "Do you even lift?" has never been more apt.

KJS14 06-30-2013 08:49 PM

At least he's playing at the junior level already..

Very happy with amount of defense men taking in this draft...still confused with 3rd pick...should of taking another d-man and stocked up the cupboards full.

starbuck97 06-30-2013 08:51 PM

6'3 155? He's like the Machinist.

Krishna 06-30-2013 08:52 PM

I'm 6'1 and about 140-145... How does this kid play hockey at a high level? A strong breeze could blow him into the next state

RussianRocket10 06-30-2013 08:54 PM

Fun fact: Going by the weight listed on NHL's website, he's the 2nd lightest player to be drafted today.

FreshPerspective 06-30-2013 08:55 PM

Wow if he is 155 wet he'll need to have Stevens bake him some cakes.....he's got to be 170 at least but maybe not!

GKJ 06-30-2013 09:04 PM

According to nhl.com's database, Drake is the 2nd lightest player who was drafted. Chicago picked Anthony Lewis who is 5'6'' 145.

Krishna 06-30-2013 09:08 PM

Just think how fast this guy must be

he's 1/2 as much as Byfuglien and is thinner than a piece of paper

Maybe we can get Casey Matthews to get a supply of dem roidz from his brother.

Flying 06-30-2013 09:41 PM

he's going to be doing a lot of oats and squats during the offseason

n62 06-30-2013 10:07 PM

To heck with lifting, dude start eating! That's like critically low BMI.

jd2210 06-30-2013 10:16 PM

If his pictures are any indication, he needs to lay off the lemons and start eating some whey

Appleyard 07-01-2013 06:07 AM

Wow, that is scarily thin... my brother is 6'3 and 168 and he is like a toothpick with shoulders.

kimmofan44 07-01-2013 06:21 AM

relation to Dallas Drake? (or Nathan Drake? or Drake mallard a.k.a. dark wing duck? or Drake ? or Drake's coffee cakes? just kidding)

DrinkFightFlyers 07-01-2013 07:01 AM

Holy crap I just saw how skinny this kid is. I hope he doesn't put on weight but still makes the NHL. Probably would be comical to see him out there on NHL ice being so tall and so thin.

MP92 07-02-2013 08:15 AM

Im sure he'll put on some weight as he gets older. Then again, some people just can't gain weight no matter what.

DrinkFightFlyers 07-03-2013 01:59 PM

They should fuse his skeleton with some adamantium. I'm not talking about giving him claws or anything to use a beserker attack on the ice, but just to give a little more weight to his hits and provide some power behind his slapshot.

Beef Invictus 07-03-2013 03:18 PM

Wow, I just want to force feed this kid a cheeseburger.

Coffe 07-03-2013 03:30 PM

Is he Justin Longs twin brother?
