On Height

Eli 14.11 is 5' 11 1/2" now.

He had a private lesson last week (hey--he can have private lessons now!), and the shooter was a (very nice) kid who played in the BCHL last season.

He's 20.

Hockey players, at least in junior hockey, are always referred to by their birth years. So you don't say "I'm 12," for example, you'd say "I'm an '04".

They were chatting during a break in the session. "So, you're what--a '97?" the shooter asked.

Eli laughed. "I'm an '01," he said.

"Jesus f-ing Christ!" said the shooter, and he skated off, laughing.
