Not really, Zatkoff is only about 175, Jones is 6'4 and he's about 190 but he was about 165 when the Kings signed him. Bernier is only listed as about 185 most places. Goalies usually tend to be on the lighter side as the thought is the less weight you carry the quicker you can get around. Most goalies depending on height end up right around the 190 range at 6'1, give or take from there. It's typically the more athletic guys that carry more weight as they can naturally carry more bulk and still get around easily. 155 is usually were guys like Berube end up at his age as they are just starting to learn the ins and outs of nutrition, and how to hit the weights properly, something alot of goalies are scared to do since they usually see it as something that will slow them down.
