Official height of players

Hi, I wonder what is the best website to know the height of the players. There are so many different information about the height of NHL players. I'm OK for the difference about the weight, because most of NHL players are much bigger when they get into the NHL, but we don't grow up at 18 years old.

Roy = 6'0" in early carrer, 6'2" end of career
Balej = 5"11 in Montreal, 6'1' in NYR (from ESPN)
Hasek = 5'11" early career, 6'2" end career
Eric Cole = 6'0" before 2002 playoffs, 6'2" after 2002 playoffs

I understand when there is a fifference by an inch, but 2 inches is a lot. On HockeyDB, they always list the players smaller (I think that it is the height/weight of the players when they are drafted), while on ESPN, the players are taller and bigger. I(I think that ESPN measure the players with their skates )Are the height/weight of the players provided from the team, so they can make their players "bigger"? Which info are the offical ones?

I don't know for sure but I've heard nhl.com has the most accurate heights.
