Jonah Gadjovich is a big and physical guy standing at 6’2″.

Apparently, he dropped his weight from 215 pounds to 205 this summer according to Canucks Army’s Chris Faber.

Gadjovich’s skating has been a weakness of his and from what has been seen at camp, he looks faster and more physical than ever. Gadjovich scored in both Friday and Saturday’s scrimmages.

Just like Friday’s goal, Gadjovich scored from in front of the net, his favourite spot.

Gadjovich already got played one game of NHL action last season. The preseason will give him the chance to show off his improved skating as well as his aggressiveness and net front presence.

It’ll be interesting to see what kind of minutes Green gives him in the preseason and see how he battles for that competitive fourth line spot.
