Canucks 6th round draft pick, and possibly one of the smallest players we've ever drafted. Kid's 5'7", a winger, and weighs in at 179 pounds. A Fin who played in the OHL and put up stellar numbers.

...so in the same article Palmu is listed at 179 Lbs and 5'7'' and then later at 165 Lbs. and 5'6".....that's a big difference...which is it?

He was listed at 5'6" 165 lbs in 2015.

Man if he can get to 5'9" that would be huge for him.

The OHL is a tough league.  The kid must be tough to put up big numbers there.

6th round home-run swing, ain't nothing wrong with that. If he was 4-6 inches taller, he'd have gone in the first 3 rounds in 2015.

Definitely the most intriguing pick for the Canucks this draft. I can see the elite upside. I'm pretty sure he's done growing however he could still get heavier. I'm very excited to see what this cat can do with the comets this year. Utica is going to be STACKED.

He's most likely done growing in height.

Maybe. Maybe not.

Being an overager makes it more likely than not. But he's built like a truck for his size so hopefully that hurdle isn't too big.

This is ideal.

Those are great numbers. I expected pGPS to spit out something in the teens and maybe an expected points/82 of ~40. A better than 25% graduation percentage with and expected points of -55 is stellar for this kind of late pick.

 

Here's hoping he reaches projections.

 

And honestly, I'd say his "intangibles" might push the odds even higher, given how strongly build this kid is and the jaw-dropping skill he's displayed at times.

 

Gonna be a real fun prospect to follow over the coming years. :)

In the New NHL this kid will do fine. He is exactly the type of player that will change games. If he is given a  fair shot he will play in the NHL.

Power Play QB for Utica - maybe for the Canucks one day too?

Kid makes plays and has a great one-timer.

If he's 5'7 and 179 he's probably close to maxing-out physically.  Not a bad thing, as he can settle in with the body he has and work on his game.  If he has the heart and drive of a Fleury, Johnson, St. Louis, Gallagher, etc. then we could have something.  He's in that same size range.  If nothing else, an entertaining lil guy to watch develop, with a cool name to boot, lol.
