Everything was going swimmingly for Kurt Etchegary of the Quebec Remparts. The team was coming off a solid season and he was slotted in the 2nd line in between two very high-skilled wingers, Adam Erne and Nick Sorensen. In his first 13 games he picked up 11 points. The 2013 draft eligible center seemed to riding high.

Then a hip injury forced him to get surgery and set his hockey on hold.

“Rehab has been frustrating since I’m the kind of guy who hates to miss one game, especially not a few months. But I have been working with the doctors and the Remparts medical staff and training with Gabriel Hardy to get my body back into game shape,” said Etchegary.
