Cole Caufield is showing he has the talent and pedigree to overcome his diminutive size (5-foot-7, 162 pounds) and excel in the NHL.
The No. 15 pick by the Montreal Canadiens in the 2019 NHL Draft, Caufield's older brother, Brock Caufield, played at the University of Wisconsin. Their father, Paul Caufield, played NCAA Division III hockey at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. Their grandfather, Wayne Caufield, was a 2011 inductee into the Wisconsin Hockey Hall of Fame who spent more than two decades coaching youth hockey and managing hockey clinics in the Milwaukee area.
