Estephan Listed on NHL CSS Preliminary 2015 Players to Watch

estephanThe National Hockey League released the Central Scouting Service Preliminary 2015 Player to Watch today and Lethbridge Hurricanes 17-year-old forward Giorgio Estephan was one of 39 Western Hockey League players on the list.

Estephan, who has been sidelined with injury through training camp and the first two games of the regular season, is not expected back for another two to three weeks with a lower body injury.

In his first WHL season, Estephan scored 12 goals and 24 points in 64 games last year as a sixteen year old. The Edmonton, AB, product was selected fourth overall in the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft by the Hurricanes.

Once the 6’0, 185 lbs forward returns he will solidify the Hurricanes top six forwards both offensively and reliability defensively.
