    Default Height and weight listings--Do some players suffer from growth-hormone disease?

    Sometimes Mike Amadio is 6'. Other times he's 6'3"" A bunch of other times, he's 6'1".

    http://www.dobberprospects.com/mike-amadio/

    http://www.dropyourgloves.com/Player...x?Player=89612

    After years of being 6'4", Kopi is now 6'3".

    Other players whose height and/or weight have fluctuated significantly are Nic Dowd, Nick Shore, Drew Doughty (6', or 6'1"?),
    Derek Forbort (drafted at 6'6", is now 6'4"), and probably at least 1 or 2 others.

    Could this be the result of some growth hormone-related disease?


    I realize weight can fluctuate, but height as well?

    Occasionally, a player's Junior measurements are listed, and this is one cause.

    But for the rest of the time, what's up?

    Kinda like here, when sometimes there's one thread on a certain subject, and sometimes there's two!

    Sometimes they cheat and get measured with skates on

    Johnny Brodzinsky currently listed at 218 lbs.

    If that's true, he's gonna' be sloooooow.

    Michael Mersch currently listed at being down to 213 lbs.
    If that's accurate, he should be quicker this year.
    He'll make up for Brodz.

    Maybe, they are drinking brain and nerve tonic.

    Lots of hockey players have astonishing growth spurts weeks after being drafted.

    Paul Kariya grew three inches.

    Our own Mikey Squid grew at least two.
