I wouldnt be able to give you an accurate size on his dad right now, however from what I remember people were always wondering about Hunters size and if he would be tall enough to be competitive. From what ive seen hes always competitive whatever size/age he plays agaist.

He's currently listed at 5'10 on hockeydb, with two years left until hes draft eligible, perhaps he would be able to get to 6'0 or more.

Putting it on YouTube flipped the video to make it seem like he's a righty. He explained in the comments at some point.

I'm not saying guys like mackinnon and lazar won't put up good numbers but there is a chance they won't, and this guy has already proven he can produce at the chl level and will most likely continue to improve and grow
Sean Monahan also had a great season in the OHL for Ottawa.

Even if he stays at 5'10" and fills out his skillset is good enough to make the NHL

His playoff line of 11-4-59 would indicate that he could put up those kind of stats next year.

He also played very good for Team Pacific at the World Under 17 challenge recently. On the Bronze winning squad he had 5 goals and 9 points in 6 games.

Because of his late birthday he is also not eligible until the 2013 year.

Average size right now standing 5'10 and weighing in at 160. Probably could be expected to grow another 2 inches atleast. Very good skater with good top end speed and amazing hands.

I rather have Sean Monahan who's playing for Ottawa in the OHL.
This kid got 47 pts in 65 games and 4 pts in 4 playoff games. This kid will be a top 5 and possibly a top 3 of the 2013 draft.

what is Seans skillset like?

Points are one thing but it could have a lot to do with team context as well.

I honestly have no idea as I haven't seen him play.

I didn't see him enough to be 100% correct since I only saw a bit of him on tv but what I've seen was enough. He simply creates spaces,got hands and a got a great shot. He's a excited prospect since he's all ready over 6 feet 2 and might grow abit more. might become a beast. Only time will tell!!!

Very taleneted kid, needs to improve his skating though if he wants to be really elite. I have seen him play a few games in the playoffs too and looks scared ****less at times when hes about to get hit.

I disagree,
Got to see him live in the Hat this weekend. Had very good skating. Thought his speed was good but could work on his strength of stride. Was not afraid to go to the corners but did get out muscled a few times. Has very good vision.

He's definitely gotten bigger, even from the end of the season. Perhaps not so much in height, but looked a lot thicker.

He was one of the shooters for Canada's U18/U20 goalie development camp a few weeks ago.

9 goals in 10 games. He has sick hands and he is gonna rip the league up in his draft year next year. Such great hands and offensive skills.
