RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Brock Trotter.
Trotter spent last season in the AHL, skating in 35 games and recording 31 points for Portland. And while his minus-11 was a far cry from his career-best plus-33 with Hamilton of the AHL in 2009, Trotter is a player who could impress during training camp, eventually leading to a call-up down the line. He'll start the season in the AHL.
Trotter returns to the Canadiens organization after spending a year with Riga Dynamo in the KHL (Russia). Not much has changed with Trotter since we last saw him: he plays hard from the blue line in, but rarely shows up on defense. He averaged a point per game with AHL Hamilton in 2009-10 and is likely to open this season there. His lack of attention to defending, and his small stature work against him.
Trotter had an injury-plagued career at the University of Denver but there's no doubting his skill set. Trotter will begin his pro career on the Habs' AHL farm team in Hamilton for 2008-09.
