He has lots of time to put on weight, and he's been doing that.

And wouldn't Gaudreau scoring at the same pace as Kreider at his size make his achievements even more impressive?
No, small players tend to score a lot more at lower levels, but the majority struggle when they play against NHL competition. Look at most junior and college leading scorers and you'll see that a lot of them are undersized.
