well you seem to actually get some tall and powerfull prospects these days. Girgensons doesn't display what I would call babyface!
Maybe your diet has changed in recent years

Found these quotes in the net:

"The Latvians are one of the tallest peoples in Europe, the average height of men being 171 cm., of women 160 cm" (it must be an old quote if you call 1.71 tall) and even better:
"Latvians are also among the peoples with the heaviest brain men 1378 grammes, women 1243 grammes" (probably too political incorrect to mention these days, so another old quote).

Overall it's great news for Latvian hockey - big and intelligent prospects are by nature yours to have
