An OHL scoring champion, Red Tilson Trophy winner, and World Junior gold medalist - No, this isn’t an article about Hart Trophy finalist John Tavares, but rather the Florida Panthers’ highly touted prospect, Vincent Trocheck.
Selected by the Panthers in the 3rd round (64th overall) in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, Trocheck became a household name to many hockey fans this year after seemingly coming out of nowhere to dominate the Ontario Hockey League. Trocheck finished the 2012-2013 OHL season with a staggering 109 points (50G-59A-109P) in 63 games split between the Saginaw Spirit and Plymouth Whalers. Amazingly, Trocheck became the 2nd consecutive player within the Panthers’ organization to win the Red Tilson Trophy as MVP of the OHL. Last season, goalie prospect Michael Houser (free agent signed by Florida on July 10, 2012) was awarded the trophy for his outstanding play for London Knights.
