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.
Trocheck notched a goal on two shots and dished two hits in Monday's 5-4 win over the Wild.
Trocheck tallied in the third period, and Noel Acciari scored in the dying seconds to secure the Panthers' win. In his last nine games, Trocheck has amassed two goals and six assists. He's up to 28 points, 106 shots on goal and 58 hits in 41 appearances this season.
Trocheck notched a goal and dished two helpers in Sunday's 8-4 win over the Maple Leafs.
Trocheck assisted on Josh Brown's first-period tally and a Mike Matheson goal in the second before scoring one of his own in the middle frame.

Trocheck posted an assist, two shots on net and four hits in Sunday's 4-1 win over Pittsburgh.
Trocheck set up Brett Connolly for the team's second goal, which went down as the game-winner. The 26-year-old Trocheck is currently working on the second line, but he's producing at a modest pace with five goals and 17 assists through 35 games. That's a long way away from the 31-goal, 75-point line in the 2017-18 season.
Trocheck picked up an assist in Monday's 6-1 loss to the Lightning.
The Panthers were pushed around big time by the Lightning but managed to put one past Andrei Vasilevskiy on the power play early in the second period. Aaron Ekblad took a short pass from Trocheck and threw it on net for Jonathan Huberdeau to tip it home. Trocheck has started to get his offense back into gear with five points in his last five games.
Trochek scored a goal and added two assists in Friday's 7-4 win over the Stars.
After picking up only one helper in his prior seven games, the 26-year-old busted out with his best performance of the season. The line of Jonathan Huberdeau, Trochek and the surprising Noel Acciari is suddenly the hottest combo in the league, and Trochek could use some good fortune -- even after Friday, he still has just five goals and 18 points through 27 games.
Trocheck was left without a point in a 6-1 win over the Senators on Monday.
Despite being on the line that saw Jonathan Huberdeau pick up four assists and Noel Acciari score a hattrick, Trocheck was kept off the scoresheet for the sixth time in the last seven games. He was able to end the night a plus-4, but his offensive woes continue as his breakout 75-point 2017-18 season begins to look like an anomaly.
Trocheck was held pointless on three shots in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Lightning.
Trocheck has gone four-straight games without a point and has been held to a relatively disappointing 14 points in 23 games this season. Going into the season Trocheck was a breakout candidate after an injury-riddled 2017-18, but he has not been able to get into gear on the Panthers' second line.

Trocheck rounded out the scoring with 4:29 left in the regulation when he deposited his fourth goal of the season. He had also assisted on a Brett Connolly goal in the second period.

Trocheck collected an assist, a shot and two hits in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Flyers.
It has been an up-and-down start to the season for Trocheck, who had big expectations placed on him after seeing his 2018-19 season derailed by an ankle injury. Still, despite a lower-body injury that kept him out for seven games, Trocheck has managed nine points through 14 contests.
Trocheck scored twice on six shots in Thursday's 4-3 loss to Winnipeg.
Trocheck's pair of third-period tallies were overshadowed by Winnipeg's trio of goals in that frame. The 26-year-old center hadn't lit the lamp since Opening Night, but hopefully this performance can get him going.
Despite a previous report that suggested otherwise, Trocheck (lower body) will play Saturday against the Islanders, Fox Sports Florida reports.

Trocheck (lower body) won't play Saturday against the Islanders, George Richards of The Athletic reports.

Coach Joel Quenneville plans on reinserting Trocheck (lower body) into the lineup for Saturday's game against the Islanders, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

Trocheck (lower body) is considered day-to-day, but he won't play Thursday against Washington, David Work of WPLG Local 10 News reports.
Trocheck will miss a seventh straight contest Thursday. Coach Joel Quenneville told reporters that the 26-year-old pivot has made "some progress" in his recovery Wednesday, but there's still no clear timetable for his return to game action. Nonetheless, another update on Trocheck's status should surface prior to Saturday's matinee matchup with the Islanders.
Coach Joel Quenneville said Trocheck (lower body) has made "some progress" but wouldn't reveal a target for his return, David Dwork of WPLG Local 10 News reports.
Quenneville outright said Mike Matheson (undisclosed) had a "good chance" to play Thursday against the Capitals, so his elusiveness in regards to Trocheck's timeline is unfavorable. Trocheck hasn't been ruled out completely and still has two days of practice to prove he's ready to go. Otherwise, Brian Boyle figures to continue centering the second line. Trocheck posted six goals in eight games before his injury.
