Most males reach their adult height at the age of 20, so it's not out of the question that he grows a little more.

Anyways, it was just meant to be a point of discussion.
It is possible, just unlikely. I suppose for me it's more of a general pet peeve, so often you see people stating that their favourite prospect has grown 1.5" and put on 20 lbs of muscle a year after the draft, when in reality they've probably grown something like 0-0.5" and put more like 5-10 lbs of muscle. For Galchenyuk personally, his size is not an issue at all, 6'0.5" and 194 lbs is already solid, and he's likely to bulk up significantly over the coming years, and maybe even grow a touch height wise. Again, just a pet peeve of mine that you often see people thinking their prospects with average builds will turn into a Backes, Clowe, etc. body type.
