Holy mother of god.
6'9 247 lbs center.
Curtis Douglas at eliteprospects.com
f***in hell yea 6'9 250lbs
What in the holy f***... Obviously have watched zero highlights of this kid but how good of a skater can you be at 6'9. Also I assume most of his 20 goals are from being the size of 2 players and just having a ridiculous physical advantage at that age
Theoretically, he should be able to be a better skater because of his stride, but there is some odd phenomena in hockey where guys above a certain height never have elite skating skill. I don’t know if it’s because their growth spurt changes their dimensions so much that they never develop the same as normal sized people or if skating coaches struggle to know what to do with them or if the better athletes at those heights end up choosing basketball over hockey.
Jim Nill decided to put all his "draft for size" bias into a single pick this year - why take a bunch of 6'3 guys when you can take a single 6'9 monster!
My scouting report on Douglas.
OHL Prospects: My Final Top 50 OHL Players for the 2018 NHL Entry Draft - Part 3: 30-11
Doesn't appear he will receive an ELC but Douglas did play at a point-per-game pace for Windsor in his fourth OHL season.
Any likelihood another team will take a shot on selecting him when he re-enters the draft?
Stars let his rights expire today
Another victim of the COVID Crunch
Gaglardi is so broke he can’t afford a signing bonus on an entry level contract. Not good.
No reason to waste money on a shitty player.
I don't know what kind of hockey player he is, but he had a couple of really entertaining fights. Oh well, never really expected much out of this pick.
Didn’t really give us a reason to sign him, he’s fine but not worth giving a 3 year ELC
