Generally speaking teams in Mestis aren't as big as in SM-liiga, but KalPa still seems to be a team full of dwarves. The average height and weight of the currently contracted 19 players is 5'10'' and 176 lbs! So Sami would be bigger than average player on that team.

At the moment the biggest (not the heaviest though) team in SM-liiga, with its 15 contracted players, is Ilves averaging almost 6'2'' and 193 lbs. Most of the teams are at least 10 pounds heavier and a couple of inches taller than KalPa. It will be very interesting to see how these small and skilled players will cope in next year's SM-liiga.
That's pretty funny. A team where Kapanen is one of the bigger players
