RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Trotman, who is working on a two-way deal with the B’s this season, played his first two NHL games with the big club last season, but spent the majority of the season with Providence in the AHL, notching eight goals, 16 assists and recording a plus-13 rating in 53 regular season games. The Bruins have a deep blue line as the coming season approaches, so it would take a few breaks for the 6-3, 219–pound Trotman to make the team out of the gate, but he’ll no doubt be on the team’s short-list of call-ups when injures hit.
The 6-foot-3, 219 pound Lake Superior State product is a depth blueliner in the Bruins’ system. Trotman recorded 16 points in his first full season as a pro with AHL Providence and his size gives him a chance to emerge down the road should his overall skills continue to develop.
The 21-year-old Lake Superior State product is one of a slew of young depth blueliners in the Bruins’ pipeline, but is a ways away from knocking at the big club’s door.
