Trotman was designated for waivers by the Penguins on Tuesday, James Mirtle of The Athletic reports.

Trotman was never going to make the Pens' 23-man roster this season, but the fact that he lasted until the later stages of training camp speaks to his abilities. The 27-year-old is closer in talent to Brian Dumoulin than Kris Letang, so don't expect him to contribute offensively if he gets called up during the 2017-18 campaign.
