Found a decent website that mentions a few stick lengths on NHL players

“I’ve got a short stick, way below the chin,” Flyers sniper Simon Gagne says.
Brendan Morrison is another guy who’s found a happy medium — which is about chin-high, a stick length he’s had for as long as he can remember.

“I have a bit of a reach being a guy, I guess, who’s a little bit smaller,” Morrison says. “But it’s not so long where you can’t handle the puck in tight.”
A master at handling the puck in tight is, of course, Henrik Sedin.

He and his brother Daniel (Sedin) have cut about three inches off the length of their sticks since they arrived in the NHL seven seasons ago, he says.

Their sticks now come up to about their collarbones, with Daniel’s being perhaps a couple of millimetres longer.

“My first couple of years here, with a longer stick, it was tough to handle the puck in the corners,” Henrik says. “When you get it in your feet there’s not a lot of room with a longer stick.”
