The many sizes of Kevin Bieksa
Vancouver Canucks defenceman Kevin Bieksa is far from a household name, but with Sami Salo currently out with an injury, the youngster has been quarterbacking the power play and doing a pretty solid job of it. Through Vancouver's first five games, the former Bowling Green Falcon has one goal and three assists.
One bizarre thing I noticed the other day, however, is that most mainstream media websites can't seem to agree on something as routine as Bieksa's height and weight. Have a look:
Yahoo, ESPN, Sportsnet
6 foot 4, 218 pounds
6 foot, 205 pounds
6 foot 1, 195 pounds
6 foot 1, 186 pounds
What is this guy, a shapeshifter?
(The real answer is somewhere between all of the extremes above, but one thing's for certain: He's not 6 foot 4.)
