Yes and alot of that hype, praise ect.. was because of the way he can skate and his size. Size translates a little better to the pro game all things being equal.

In the last 10 years, there's only been one sophomore who's won the Hobey Baker. And Gaudreau is smaller.
I don't know if he is going to win the Hobey or not but either way it's not going to affect his NHL chances.

Until he actually hits the pros he will be a hyped prospect that is really small and yes like every prospect he will have something to prove in the pros.

His chances are less and were less than Kreider because of his size plain and simple.
