No it is true and for most every sport that involves a long, constant season. As Brian Fogarty and Clint basically said, over the course of a season, players simply expend too much energy to effectively put on muscle and weight. Generally, the offseason is the "loading" period, where athletes put on as much weight and strength as possible. This slowly deteriorates over the course of a long season.

Of course, this doesn't happen 100% of the time, but its the general rule. It also makes common sense right? Huber has played like 100 games this year. Its just too hard to gain weight with that much energy output. Its not due to a lack of dedication.
