Observations:

December 2016 - December 2016 - Offensive dynamo Giorgio Estephan is at it again with the Lethbridge Hurricanes this season. Already at 14 goals and 13 assists in 23 games, Estephan is on pace for another 70+ point season. He suffered an injury at the end of the season last year which held back his point production, so this is the year for Estephan to remain healthy and really help the Hurricanes roar into the playoffs. Estephan has impressed in all factors of the game during camp as well, so he could see the NHL sooner rather than later. Max Marko

April 2016 – Estephan has signed an ATO with the Rochester Americans, Estephan could get some good developmental minutes with the Amerks last six games of the season. This experience will help him when he returns to the Lethbridge Hurricanes next year. The Hurricanes were upset in the first round of the WHL playoffs, which is also a great lesson for the young pivot to develop into a better leader for his team.

 

April 2016 – Giorgio Estephan destroyed his career high numbers in all scoring categories this year in Lethbridge. Giorgio finished his third WHL campaign with 30 goals, 44 assists for 74 points in 59 games played (1.25 pts/gp). Paul Zwambag

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: C

Estephan will have to continue to develop his defensive game to become a more well-rounded centre at the NHL level. When he has confidence, he can make some pretty slick moves and create dangerous scoring chances .
