I now live very close to where Shane McColgan grew up.

His father and uncle own a few bars in Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach. I've never met his father (Shane), but I've been talking to his uncle about this kid for two years now.

The skinny: he's closer to 5'8" than 5'11" in person. I'm 5'11" and the kid is significantly shorter than me. He translates to a Theo Fluery type of kid if he develops. I don't think his size is as big an issue as most people would believe. He's pretty solidly built (his uncle by the way is almost square) despite the fact that he's pretty short.

Good family, solid kid. He should be a nice agitator with enough offensive upside to sneak his way on to a second line if he develops. Even if he doesn't develop, he could still be a nice lower line kid who's tough to play against.
