RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
