Looked it up he started the season at BC at 153 lbs, still the number of small guys with great skillsets even making the NHL a career is small and star status even smaller.

He has lots of time to put on weight, and he's been doing that.
11 lbs is a good start but he still needs another 20 and even then he is still a longshot.

And wouldn't Gaudreau scoring at the same pace as Kreider at his size make his achievements even more impressive?
Not really big guys take longer and we are talking about making the NHL here, size isn't as great of an issue in College as it is in the pro ranks or heck even Major Jr where there is a longer more NHL like shcedule.
