Using pictures like that is so dumb. You don't know what kind of shoes/skates these players are wearing and they are all at different angles. Pictures are so misleading with height because it can look different depending on where the picture was taken...like the depth and the angle.

If I had to make an educated guess about JG...I would say 5'7 or 5'8. My guess is right in the middle at 5'7 and 1/2

Maybe Trouba isn't 6'1 anymore, genius.

5"6, 7 8 9 10 11.. Does it really matter in the end? he isn't 3 feet tall... Just let the kid develop and I am sure he will try as hard as he can to do so. He is closer to the NHL then any of us arguing like old women on the damn internet.

Trouba was 6'2" at the NHL scouting combine in 2012. He might have grown a bit since then, I suppose.

Gaudreau is standing straight while Gibson is leaning in.

And generally the goalie skate blade holder is shorter so the boot sits lower to the ice.

Cant really use this photo as a reference.

I keep shaking my head at the people still bringing up his lack of height, he's more than tall enough to snipe top shelf goals, win MVP awards and championships but yet he's too short to make the NHL

He can crash the net without getting hurt.

Enjoyed watching him at the WJC but I think he's in tough as far as the NHL goes. He's light, he's short and looks like he has short limbs.

Totally different game on the bigger ice surface for him and one to his advantage. On smaller ice he won't be able to create as much space for himself.

Good luck to him though.

Whats his height compared to Ennis?

Ennis's size actually helps his gamee. Not sure how big the gap is in skill, but it wouldnt surprise me to see this kid make it playing a similar style.

According to Wiki Ennis is 5'9 and the last measurement I heard of JG is at 5'9 or just under.

Similar size. Ennis is 5'9" probably 165-170 this year. Gaudreau is 5'8" 160 though he's no where as explosive as Ennis, his agility and hockey smarts are on par with him

USA Hockey has him listed at 5'9" and 150 lbs. You'd think that would be somewhat up to date. (PDF is dated 12/11/12)

We also need to start him on the Keith Tkachuk / Kyle Wellwood diet.

He'll probably gain another 10-15 pounds of muscle and strength by the season's end with BC. Going to that program was the best thing for him.

Still pretty thin then if hes actually 5'9. Good progress though, I am not too worried about his weight, he still has plenty of time to add on more.

I highly doubt that kid is 5'9 WITH skates on. Seriously, that kid is nowhere near 5'9.

He has been measured at it several times but you're right it is a huge conspiracy to convince HF that he is a viable nhl prospect

Oh my god, do you believe Marty St. Louis is 5'9 too?

Don't believe everything you hear, kid....look at him on the ice, he's a dwarf.

Watched the game USA vs Finland and he was no bigger than Lino Martschini.

Yes multiple sources have faked measuring him at 5'8-5'9 over the past year in order to accomplish ?
