Some people have enough strength to compensate for a lot of size loss. I doubt Antropov can do that. But Marty St Luois is very strong.

Either way, he's killing it. How common is that scoring? I don't follow USHL at all.
One thing I've heard about the combine is the necessity to complete the exercise completely according to standard. A lift for example can be disqualified if it wasn't done completely correctly, and so just strength alone isn't recognized.
