But he isn't, he is incredibly small and slight.

Even Kreider only saw his stock really sky rocket with his 18 game performance in the NHL playoffs.

Going into the year the 6'3" 220 lb speedster was ranked around 20th.

Gaudreau would need a Forsberg type of WJC performance to get into the top 20 IMO.

Even with his rookie season last year at BC and the scouts seeing his skill set his size and weight still keep him out of most top 100 lists never mind "one of the top prospects in the world discussion."
