Across the board, no matter where you go, hockey teams embellish player heights. It's not just because they get compensation if a player does get signed to an NHL contract but because they like to see their players move on.

In my last AAA season I was 5'7 but listed as 5'9. The weight is usually 5-10lbs higher too. By the time I got to junior I was 5'8 (part of the reason why I'm no longer playing... ) and my teams were wanting to list me as 5'11.

I look forward to seeing this Hollweg character in a Ranger uniform for at least one game. Does he play with the energy of somebody like Tootoo? I really know nothing about him.
