When I was a kid I used to love studying the NHL guide, looking up all the prospects each team had...

The Black Hawks had, at the time, the largest player I had ever seen. His name was Mark Hatcher (I believe the oldest brother). I think he was 6'7" and 240 pounds. Huge for the time (I guess still huge). I think he may have gotten in a single NHL game.

Those were some big kids the Hatcher parents were popping out.

A few years later the Flames drafted Peluwa, who was 230+, also very rare...and in a couple years later, there would be a couple of guys that sized drafted yearly.

In my draft yr, the Hockey News had a list of (I think) 500 names of players likely to get drafted along with their hometown and their size (and I realize that those numbers are still often incorrect). I believe out of that group of 500, there was less than 20 that were over 200 pounds.
