Doug Weight as an 18-year-old had played no NHL games

Current Oiler comparison:
Nail Yakupov as an 18-year-old has
29 gp
15 pts
(Yakupov is projecting better)
Doug Weight as a 19-year-old had played no NHL games

Current Oiler comparison:
Ryan Nugent-Hopkins as a 19-year-old has
89 gp
63 pts
(Nugent-Hopkins is projecting better)
Doug Weight as a 20-year-old had amassed
52 gp
30 pts
(No 20-year-old Oilers to compare, but the 18 and 19 year old ones still project to be much better.)
Doug Weight as a 21-year-old had amassed
131 gp
78 pts

Current Oiler comparison 1:
Taylor Hall 21-year-old:
152 gp
121 pts
(Hall is projecing better)

Current Oiler comparison 2:
Magnus Paajarvi as a 21-year-old:
145 gp
50 pts
(Weight is slightly ahead, but Paajarvi is in the discussion)
Doug Weight as a 22-year-old had amassed
215 gp
152 pts

Current Oiler comparison:
Jordan Eberle 22-years-old
176 gp
139 pts
(Eberle has a higher points per game)
Doug Weight as a 23-year-old had amassed
263 gp
192 pts

Current Oiler comparison:
Sam Gagner this season as a 23-year-old, currently has
248 gp
159 pts
(Weight is slightly better according to this stat, but to his detriment in this comparison Gagner is having the best season of his career in a season shortened by a lockout.)
