The right handed Estephan stands 6'0'', 188lbs, and put up some nice numbers in Lethbridge to the tune of 23-28-51 in 63 games this season. He had an extremely strong end to the year - after scoring just four points in his first 21 games, he put up 47 points in his final 42 contests.
The Sabres stay in the WHL and take C Giorgio Estephan (6-0, 180) with the 152nd pick. Smooth, slick playmaker out of Lethbridge. 23-28-51— Kris Baker (@SabresProspects) June 27, 2015
Here's what the scouts have to say
A slippery offensive center with tons of skill and offensive prowess. When he is confident with the puck, he can pull off moves that open up a lot of time and space for himself and teammates. Can create a lot of dangerous chances through utilizing his smooth skating and knowledge of the offensive end. Continues to get better in his own end, defensively and physically. All-in-all, a smart, hard-working center that continues to improve in all areas, game by game, and is not far off from becoming a complete, well-rounded hockey player that can dominate offensively.
BUF goes back to the WHL for super-skilled Giorgio Estephan of LETH. Skating isn't pretty but he makes plays. pic.twitter.com/AN0Wk0PJFC— Cody Nickolet (@DubFromAbove) June 27, 2015
