The Lethbridge Hurricanes have selected Centre Cole Plotnikoff from Surrey, BC with their only pick in the second round of the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft.
Plotnikoff was taken 28th overall.
Earlier today, the Hurricanes took Giorgio Estephan with the 4th overall selection. Estephan had 100 points in 32 games, including 43 goals and 57 assists with the Edmonton Southside Athletic Club this past year.
The Hurricanes made their second, first-round selection in the Draft. With the 18th pick overall, acquired from Moose Jaw in the Cam Braes trade, the Canes selected defenceman Thomas Lenchyshyn.
Lethbridge did not have a 3rd round selection this year, so they made trade to acquire the 53rd overall pick in the third round and chose forward Colt Conrad from Manitoba.
