While some scouts think that being short is an obstacle to playing at the NHL level, there are plenty of players throughout NHL history that have proven those skeptics wrong.
This list takes a look at the 25 best "short" players in NHL history.
Let's clarify what "short" means, at least for purposes of this list. To qualify, a player has to be less than 5'10". They also had to be at least below-average in height during the time they were playing.
Obviously, the more successful a player was, the higher he will be on this list.
As always, your comments are most welcomed. Feel free to suggest any players you feel I've overlooked or make a case for why a player should have a higher or lower ranking.
