Trocheck notched a pair of assists in Tuesday's 7-4 victory over Buffalo. The 22-year-old came into Monday on a five-game point streak, only to be silenced along with the rest of his teammates by Detroit goalie Petr Mrazek. But the Panthers bounced back in a better matchup, and so did Trocheck, who now has 11 points over the course of the last seven games. It's surprising that only three of those have come on the man advantage, where he sees heavy time and has been quite effective this year.
Trocheck scored two goals -- one of them into an empty net -- and added a power-play assist Thursday in a 6-3 win over Detroit. That's goals in four consecutive games for Trocheck, who's racked up five goals, three assists and a plus-7 rating in that span. This has been a season of hot and cold streaks for the young center, who went six consecutive games without a point before this stretch. Inconsistencies are to be expected, but Trocheck's 10 power-play points have him tied for the most among Panthers.
Trocheck tallied a goal and an assist against the Capitals on Tuesday. Tuesday's matchup was Trocheck's second consecutive multi-point game. The center has been lighting the lamp as he has found the back of the net three times in as many nights. The 22-year-old's goal streak comes after riding out a six-game slump in which he failed to record a point.
Trocheck scored the game-winner and picked up an assist in Tuesday's 5-1 win over Toronto. After breaking a six-game pointless streak Friday, Trocheck delivered his fourth multi-point game of the season. Despite his recent slumps, he is on pace for a career-high 44 points. Trocheck may have faced a drop in ice time, but this may finally be the sign of a breakout going forward.
Trocheck laid four hits on the Oilers in Monday's loss but was unable to find the scoresheet for the fifth consecutive game. So long as he ends the slump soon, fantasy owners shouldn't frown on Tro this season. After all, Florida's third-round pick from 2011 already has 12 goals and 12 assists, and that point production is second on the team only to Aleksander Barkov's 28 combined goals and assists at the center position.
