Trocheck registered a power-play goal on five shots in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to Florida. He also went 11-for-17 (64.7 percent) on faceoffs. Trocheck sent the game into overtime with a terrific re-direct at the side of the Florida net, potting his seventh goal of the season. The 27-year-old former Panther has been productive all year, but he's cranked it up over the last 10 days with a five-game point streak (two goals, five assists).
Trocheck (lower body) provided two assists, three shots on goal, a plus-2 rating and a pair of hits in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Stars. Trocheck missed one game with the injury, and he skated 19:06 in Thursday's contest, second-most among Hurricanes forwards. His first assist Thursday came on the power play. The 27-year-old appears locked into a top-six job. He's racked up an impressive six goals, five assists, a plus-4 rating, 21 hits and 35 shots on net through 10 appearances. Consider this the green light to reinsert Trocheck into fantasy lineups.
Trocheck (lower body) is expected to return to the lineup for Thursday's game versus Dallas. Trocheck is expected to return to a prominent role following his one-game absence, skating on Carolina's third line and top power-play unit against the Stars. The 27-year-old forward has picked up six goals and nine points through nine games this campaign.
Coach Rod Brind'Amour is hopeful Trocheck (lower body) will be able to play Thursday against the Stars, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports. Trocheck missed Monday's loss to the Blue Jackets with a lower-body issue, but it appears as though his absence may be limited to a single contest. Another update on the 27-year-old forward, who's picked up six goals and nine points in nine games this campaign, should be released prior to puck drop versus Dallas.
Trocheck (lower body) will not suit up for Monday's game against Columbus, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports. Trocheck has tallied nine points in nine games to start the season while holding down his top-six role. The 27-year-old will have a couple of days to rest up before Thursday's tilt in Dallas, but his status for that game is uncertain at this time.
