He can over come his limitations with patience. Most sub 5'9" Nhlers dont really establish themselves till their early/mid 20's.
Dont get me wrong, I love Gaudreau. I'm just willing to wait.
170 ish seems like a good weight for JG.
JG's career path will very much be like Atkinson's, but Atkinson really came on to the scene in his sophomore year, whereas JG was a stud as a freshman(and STILL improving as a sophomore)
If he wins the Hobey this year, and hopefully another national champ, then Abbotsford is where he will go to. Atkinson was almost PPG in his first year in the AHL and he played 27 games with Columbus. I dont see how JG cant do just as good if not better
