Canes Estephan & Nielsen Off to NHL Camps

The Western Hockey League is proud to announce that 127 WHL players have been invited to attend NHL training camps in September. All of the 127 players attending NHL camps are eligible to return to the WHL for the 2015-16 season.

Of the 127 WHL players set to attend NHL training camps, 81 were selected in the NHL Draft and 46 are free agent invitees or are eligible for the 2016 NHL Draft.

Two Lethbridge Hurricanes are heading to camps. Defenceman Andrew Nielsen is going to the Toronto Maple Leafs and forward Giorgio Estephan will make his way to camp in Buffalo. Both players went in this past June's NHL Draft.

All 22 WHL Clubs will send at least one player to an NHL training camp. The Kelowna Rockets boast an impressive 12 players who will attend NHL camps, which is the most of any WHL Club. In addition, the Seattle Thunderbirds will send 10 players to NHL camps while both the Brandon Wheat Kings and the Portland Winterhawks will see nine players attend NHL training camps.
