    He has played in Austria with Jesenice and is a defender and is 15 now. Hasn't put up any points in the 2 years he has played but this is crazy, a 13 year old pro ??? Wow. Anyone else heard about the kid?

    Sometimes playing up isnt a good thing. Have to see it to be the judge. It is an accomplishment as long as he belongs.

    It is. The statistics are exactly the same, but HockeyDB only takes stats from Jesenice's contests in the Erste Bank Liga.

    I think being up at such a young age would be very impressive by itself. The Austrian league is a full-fledged pro league, I can't imagine a player getting a chance without earning merit for it.

    Doesn't matter in this case though, I'm pretty sure it's a typo. Eliteprospects has him as a 91, not a 96, and I tend to trust them more in regards to Europeans.

    when i saw A. Zupancic i was thinking about the Oshawa General, who is also in my class. And he was far from a 'prospect' he was a grocery stick (as friends in my circle would call him)...but i never made it any far either, who am i to judge.

    You would be surprsied. There are 15 year old players 6'4-6'7 playing AAA in Ontario. Ususally lacking in weight (no shock), but still kids are getting bigger.

    The infos wrong but 6'0 180 isn't that obscene for a 15 year old.

    My friend was a baseball pitcher and he was 6'3 190 lbs at 15
