Tropp has re-signed with the Ducks. Tropp spent all of the 2015-16 campaign in the AHL, piling up 39 points in 66 games while playing in Albany and San Diego. Most likely, he'll reprise his role as an organizational depth player this season.
Tropp was sent to AHL San Diego on Monday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports. Tropp joins Anton Khudobin, Michael Sgarbossa, and Stefan Noesen in the move to San Diego for the remaining two games left on the regular season schedule. At 26 years old, Tropp made 61 appearances for the Blue Jackets this season before ultimately being traded to the Ducks, although it seems that his role with Anaheim's upcoming playoff run will be limited, if he even plays at all.
Tropp was promoted to the Ducks from AHL San Diego on Saturday, The Orange County Register reports. Tropp was acquired from the Blackhawks at this year's trade deadline, but he's yet to make his debut with the Ducks. However, playing time in the NHL may be imminent for Tropp since the Ducks have locked up a spot in the playoffs and a couple of the team's forwards reportedly didn't travel to Colorado for Saturday's match, including Rickard Rakell (appendix). Still, he's safe to pass over in fantasy leagues given that he's just now getting a look.
Tropp was traded to the Ducks on Monday in exchange for Tim Jackman and a seventh-round pick in 2017, TSN's Frank Seravalli reports. Last June, Tropp was acquired by the Blackhawks in a mega-deal that saw Brandon Saad land in Columbus. Unfortunately, the Michigan native hasn't appeared in a single NHL game this season and should stay limited to an organizational depth role despite heading West.
Corey Tropp was acquired Tuesday by the Blackhawks along with forwards Marko Dano, Artem Anisimov, Jeremy Morin, and a 2016 fourth-round draft pick. In return, the Blue Jackets will receive forwards Brandon Saad, Alex Broadhurst, and defenseman Michael Paliotta.
