NHL Growing

from the Montreal Gazette,
The elite professional is of unprecedented size in 2005-06, based on the 710 active players and injured reserve on first-game rosters of the NHL's 30 clubs. This average player has grown two inches, added 20.4 pounds and aged two years since 1972-73, the first year the league tracked him, when he was 5-foot-11, 184.5 pounds and 26.4 years. He is 3/10ths of a pound heavier and one-half year older than in 2003-04, and is 6-foot-1 for the 11th consecutive season.
