Trochek scored the game-winning goal on the power play in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over the Islanders. After starting his Canes tenure with zero points through four games, Trochek finally made an impact. The 26-year-old now has 11 goals -- one more than last season -- and 37 points through 60 games between Carolina and Florida.
Trocheck was acquired by the Hurricanes from the Panthers on Monday in a swap for Erik Haula, Lucas Wallmark, Chase Priskie and Eetu Luostarinen, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. Trocheck has tallied a mere 36 points in 55 games this season, well off his 75-point 2017-18 campaign. While the 26-year-old seems unlikely to reach the 20-goal mark, even with the change of scenery, he could still push for 50 points -- a threshold he has reached in three of the last four seasons. The Pittsburgh native should slot into a top-six role with Carolina in addition to jumping onto the power play.
Trocheck posted an assist and two PIM in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Golden Knights. Trocheck has picked up four points in his last four games. The center is up to 36 points, 129 shots and 83 hits in 55 appearances this year -- that's two points better than what he had in the same number of contests last year. A one-time 75-point producer, Trocheck appears more likely to end up around 50 if he remains healthy for the rest of the campaign.
Trocheck scored a goal and dished an assist in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Ducks. Trocheck's second-period tally would stand as the game-winner -- his first such goal this year -- and he later assisted on MacKenzie Weegar's empty-net goal. The 26-year-old center is now at 35 points, eclipsing his production from last year by one. Trocheck has added 128 shots, 80 hits and a minus-2 rating in 53 outings.
Trocheck scored an empty-net goal in Monday's 5-3 win over the Sharks. Trocheck's game is clearly not at the 31-goal level it was in 2017-18, but he's earned every score honestly this year until notching his ninth on an empty net Monday. The 26-year-old now has 33 points through 52 games, and he's averaging 17:05 per contest -- the lowest since his age-21 season in 2014-15.
