And yes, obviously an ectomorph that has trouble putting on weight, but it's not like a professional hockey club can't recognize that.
The worry from my standpoint is that this is a kid that has it easy based on his size. Going to OKC where you are up against men is going to take a toll on him.

Time will tell, but as I see it right now someone is going to be in the ECHL. Wonder if it's him.
