  1. Why would two good junior teams teams draft a 5'7" 140 lbs.? Is there something I'm missing with this kid?

    1. Do you not know just take a look at who he is and these team have always done there home work that why they are so good you should always do your home work before asking these questions like Mike said 15 year oldes do grow I do hope this helps

    2. Yes there is , these teams have good people who do a great job in researching players that why they drafted that player and again that why they are both top teams in the junior ranks . So the best thing I can tell you is for you to do a better job when researching players if you don't know how than ask the scouts of some of the top teams. PS. I do hope this is some help to you.
