Same goes with
Hampus Lindholm - 6'2'', 185 according to IIHF and then 6'3'', 195 at the combine.
Andrei Vasilevski - 6'3'', 183 by IIHF - 6'3'', 210 by NHL
Brendan Gaunce - 6'0'', 212 (IIHF) - 6'1.75'', 207 (NHL)
Daniil Zharkov - 6'2'', 179 (IIHF) - 6'3.5'', 207 (NHL)
Olli Maata - 6'2'', 198 (from WJC-U20) - 6'1'', 204 (NHL)
Tomas Hertl - 6'0'', 187 (from WJC-U20) - 6'2.25'', 198 (NHL)
Esa Lindell - 6'2'', 190 (IIHF) - 6'3'', 187 (NHL)
Most of them which are above seem to be out of the date but mostly they are quite accurate.
