Looking at the Tucson Roadrunners website they have Lil' Tidbit listed as 5'10" ! Say what?
My son told me Central Scouting makes you stripdown to your Jockeys and stand against a wall barefoot and they pull out the tape measure....I can't imagine the actual AHL / NHL is any different or is it like youth / high school hockey where every undersized kid adds 15 pounds and 4 inches to make themselves feel better about their Irish heritage?
Kid is still playing in AHL getting paid 80-100K to play hockey . He has done quite well for himself and i wish him all the best. No need to be a jealous hater.
CG? I see him listed at 5'8" 160. What AHL team do you play for?
Teams can list whatever they want. Adam McQuaid was always listed as 6'5". Now 6'4". Bit young for him to have shrunk.
If you saw 5'10" they changed it, because it's 5'8" now.
BTW, did your "son" tell you that Central Scouting also measures them fingertip to fingertip, which is actually more usable "height?"

What are you talking about? Wingspan? When do you ever see an athletes wingspan listed in his bio/stat sheet, etc?
Daddy should have broken out the HGH like other local dads have been known to do....best investment in the kids future he could have made....oh, other than talking him into going to Penn State.
I'm calling BS on the "Dr of Pediactrics" (ahhhh it's spelled pediatrics) post about needing a prescription for HGH. How long have you been at the old pediatrics game? Take a few minutes from your busy day of pediatricing and chasing nurses around and go to any serious gym or Crossfit place and look around. Yeah, all those guys (and half the women) in there, they all have prescriptions for steroids and the laundry list of injectables they have in their bodies.
It's so cute in today's world that a doctor thinks we all wait in line, pay for an office visit, then pay-up for a specialist, get told 'everything is fine,' pay the co-pay, pay for the visit, file for insurance coverage, wait three months to be told 'it's not covered,' then go about our merry way when a 15 year old kid is grabbing the stuff off the internet and having it delivered to their door in five days for pennies on the dollar. Just why do you think all of these young athletes are getting testicular cancer and a litany of other serious blood & cancer related illnesses?
