    Does he have any chances of getting drafted? His scoring pace is astonishing for a kid his size. I mean he's built like an average 11 year old. If he's lucky, he might be one of those rare cases that hits a growth spurt at 18.

    iirc, he did some tests at a doctor's, and the results weren't too optimistic. he probably has to play his entire career as a midget among men.

    I highly doubt he ever gets drafted. I just don't see him having success at the NHL level.
    On the other side, he used to outscore Nino Niederreiter at every level of his career, even now in his rookie year in the OHL.
    It's a shame he isn't at least 5'7. Martin St. Louis shows how well you can perform without size and much physical presence.


    First sequence is a breakaway goal by Marschini. He's really flying out there.


    interview (german) and some playing sequences. He really is a fighter, I hope he'll have at least a good AHL career.

    Definitely needs to put on some more weight.

    Nathan Gerbe has made it to the NHL despite only being 5'5", but he also weighs a lot more than Lino and has the benefit of being North American.

    he needs to get to at least 155 if possible.

    Guessing that would be about 65-70 kg?
    It is possible, but it is going to take him a few years to get there.

    yeah I imagine it's going to take time, he might not even have the frame to support it. What you notice about all the small guys in the NHL is that they have absolutely huge lower bodies.

    judging from the video clips of him in normal clothes he doesn't look that skinny, so I don't see why he wouldn't be able to bulk up to maybe 150-160. Yeah I've heard St.Louis' thighs are HUGE.
