There's always hope but I would be surprised if he grew anymore than another inch. It's something we see all the time in the QMJHL. One example, Kyle Farrell could have been a hell of a player had he had a 5'11" frame. If you're going to make it at that little man size you need a world class skill set.

If you compare Garland to Audette, it's not even close. Garland seemed a bit hesitant a few times in the game I watched but the kid was all over the ice and despite his dwarf-like build he was able to hold his own and create space with his skill and speed. I think he ended up with 3 points and all I kept thinking was "Wow this kid is small"

Going into the game I didn't know what to expect. I knew he was over a PPG average but that only tells you so much. Definitely worth another look soon, glad he ditched the NCAA route.
