Scouting Report

Strengths: Plays with an edge. Cepek isn’t
afraid to mix it up with anyone.
Weaknesses: Often takes too many penalties.
Not a great skater and isn’t blessed offensively.
Projected Role: Cameron Cepek needs a lot of work, but could become a decent physical
defenseman in the NHL.


Defenseman Cameron Cepek has entered his third WHL season with the Portland
Winter Hawks. The Habs decided to gamble on the blue-liner after he played
only 21 games last season due to a wrist injury. However, it was the 10
points and 71 PIM that caught the scouts’ eyes during that short span of 21
games. Cepek will look to build on his early success last season with the
Winter Hawks this year.
