Trotman underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee and will be out 4-6 weeks. Regardless of when Trotman is cleared to play, he will almost certainly end up on the taxi squad or perhaps even in the minors, as the Penguins are relatively deep on the blue line following the offseason additions of Mike Matheson and Cody Ceci. Without a path to regular ice time, Trotman figures to be a non-factor in fantasy leagues this year.
Trotman is on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports. Trotman missed the 2020 postseason with an undisclosed injury, so it's not clear if this latest problem is related. Even if healthy, Trotman was a long shot to crack the lineup with any consistency following the additions of Mike Matheson and Cody Ceci in the offseason. As such, he shouldn't be expected to offer much in terms of fantasy value this year.
Trotman (undisclosed) joined the Penguins on ice for special-teams work Wednesday, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports. Trotman missed the Penguins' short appearance during the NHL's return to play in August with an undisclosed issue. With an on-ice appearance in training camp, it's safe to assume the 30-year-old blueliner is over the mystery injury. Trotman is a long-shot for the Penguins' Opening Night roster -- it's more likely he's a candidate for the taxi squad since he has 91 games of NHL experience under his belt.
Trotman (undisclosed) won't be available for the playoffs, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports. Trotman likely wouldn't have seen any game action in the playoffs anyway, as he only appeared in eight games with the big club as an injury replacement option this year. The 29-year-old blueliner will now set his sights on getting healthy for the 2020-21 campaign.
Trotman was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Monday. Trotman saw action in three games following his mid-February call-up in which he registered five shots, seven hits and three blocks while averaging 13:15 of ice time. With the Indiana native headed back to the minors, the Penguins could be getting John Marino (jaw) or Brian Dumoulin (ankle) back for Tuesday's clash with Ottawa.
