Think they play 68 games in an OHL season. I know he had like 40+ goals in 64 games last year ..still he is only 5'9. I know I know people make such a big stink about size., but let's hope this kid has one last growth spurt in him.

I don't care about his size. He'll fill out like his father and be just fine.

His dad, Steve, was not much taller, but he was as much a banger as a scorer. Christian, diminuative as he is, will never be a banger. But with a real nose for the net, he reminds me more of Joey Mullen.

Size never was a problem for Joey, even in a more physical era.

Haha... good reference.. That was a cool hockey movie..

Yeah.. Steve Thomas was short but he was real stocky and strong.. I guess they called him stumpy for a reason.. He had a quick release on his shot and was tough to knock off the puck.. You have to think C. Thomas will fill out and be similar size to his Dad. I am sure Gordie Clark and crew believe this..

Adam Graves is part of the Oshawa Generals ownership group. He knows Thomas very well. You know Graves put in a good word. Good bloodlines.

I don't care if he doesn't get taller, he just needs to get stronger and be smart so he doesn't get knocked off the puck.

Really like the kid and think he can make the NHL.

Grandson, I believe. The effing Pens picked him in some middle rounds of the last draft. Makes me despise that franchise even more

Pretty excited for this kid.

His size doesn't scare me too much. Guys that size can thrive in the NHL.

I am so envious of the Rangers picking this kid up. I really wanted the Leafs to pick him up. The father son tradition would have continued.

An apple doesn't fall far from it's tree. If he's anything like his dad, and I have no doubt that he is, he'll be a jam. What he lacks in size, he'll make it up in spirit.

I hate the Rangers even more

The kid still looks like he is 15-16 years old. I think he still has a growth spurt in him, he probably will end up being bigger than is father was.

It would be cool if the kid could fill out to say 6'1...

Cool? That'd be more than cool.

I'll be happy if he reaches a legit 5'9" and bulks up his frame.

Well Dubi was drafted at 5-10/180ish I believe, and wound up adding 3 inches and some 25 ish pounds. A really good example of a player having a considerable growth spurt post draft.

Thomas looks like a true sniper. If he could add a bit of size it would be nothing but positive.

Also for the folks that love stats, Thomas should be able to provide plenty of grist for that mill.

His size is a concern.

Playing against 16-19 year olds in Canadian Juniors is managable for someone his size.

Playing against 20+ year old, physically mature, grown men is another thing.

Non-physical, diminutive players, no mater what their skill, will always have a much harder time.

The bloodlines side of the argument is not really a good one. Many players related to great NHL players never amounted to anything as NHL players.

I'm hoping this kid reaches his potential. But he needs to get bigger and stronger. If he can get to about Callahan's size and strength, and add some physicality to his game, that would be great.

CT isn't exactly a weakling and he doesn't shy away from contact at all.

IIRC he actually placed in the top 10 of a few of the strength tests at the combine.

People need to remember that small does not equal weak all of the time. Obviously hes going to need to get bigger but thats nothing that a good diet and a ton of hard work can't take care of (even if his mom is/was really skinny.)
