Vincent Trocheck: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
A former third-round pick by the Panthers in 2011, Trocheck is working his way into becoming a full-time NHL player. Last season, he spent the majority of the season with the Panthers, scoring seven goals and 15 assists in 50 games. Trocheck is in line to be a third-line winger this season, where he'll provide some young blood next to veteran pivot Dave Bolland. At just 22 years old, Trocheck's stock is quickly rising, and he could find additional value if he works back into a power-play role this season.
Trocheck, a former junior scoring star, saw action in 20 games for the Panthers in 2013-14, scoring eight points. He found much greater success with San Antonio of the AHL, putting up 42 points in 55 games, making for an overall successful first season as a pro. At just 21 years old, Trocheck is still developing, and his chances to make the big club out of training camp are limited a strong group of forwards in front of him. If he saw significant time in Miami this year, he could make an impact as one of the Panthers' best prospects.
2013-14 will be Trocheck's first year as a professional, and he likely won't have much of an NHL impact. He lit up the OHL last season with a line of 50/59/109 in 63 games with the Plymouth Whalers and the Saginaw Spirit, so he could potentially get called up if he's scoring a lot for AHL San Antonio, but it would be wise to wait for him to do that before thinking about him as a fantasy option.
Trocheck, who signed an entry-level contract with the Panthers in April, will most likely spend this upcoming season with the Saginaw Spirit of the OHL. Trocheck, the team's third-round pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, posted 85 points in 65 games in his third OHL season. The hard-working, two-way forward has a ton of upside and could find his way up to the big club within the next year or two.
