  • 2007-2008: 185 cm (6'0.8")
  • 2008-2009: 187 cm (6'1.6")
  • 2009-2010: 188 cm (6'2")
  • 2010-2011: 188 cm (6'2")
  • 2011-2012: 188 cm (6'2")
  • 2012-2013: 188 cm (6'2")

That first season (from which the HockeyDB probably got its numbers) was when he debuted for Arboga in Hockeyallsvenskan as a 14-year-old.
Then, apparently, he grew 6 inches in a year!
Or, the Swedish Icehockey Association got it wrong...

Anyway, here are some pictures of him playing in a men's league as a 14-year-old.
You be the judge.
