While the NHL’s regular season is wrapping up, the OHL’s playoffs are well under way. It turns out there are some Panthers playing in the playoff this year, well, future Panthers that is. Panther prospect Vincent Trocheck has led his junior team the Plymouth Whalers into the West Conference Finals. After leading the OHL in scoring during the regular season, Trocheck is setting the points pace in the playoffs. In ten playoff games, Trocheck has 21 points (nine goals, 12 assists).
Panther fans would do well to remember the name Trocheck. In all likelihood he will be playing for the Panther as soon as next season. Whether he starts next year with the big club or is called up later on in the season, Trocheck will be with the Panthers at some point. For now, we can just enjoy watching an extremely talented player fine tuning his scoring prowess.
Do you think Trocheck will make an impact for Florida next year? Will he even play for the Panthers? Will he develop into a top six forward? Feel free to share your thoughts below.
