Fresh Faces: Vincent Trocheck

By: Kinsey Janke

Just a few months into the age of 20, Vincent Trocheck already has a lot to be proud of.

During his four seasons in the Ontario Hockey League, Trocheck totaled 299 points (120g, 179a) in 264 games. In his final season, one he split between the Saginaw Spirit and the Plymouth Whalers, Trocheck was awarded the Eddie Powers Memorial Trophy, awarded annually to the player with the most points, as well as the Red Tilson Trophy, which recognizes the OHL’s most outstanding player. He was also named to the OHL’s First All-Star Team in that same season.

Trocheck competed in the 2013 World Junior Championship, representing the United States, and helped the U.S. capture gold. The Pittsburgh native had six points in the seven games played by the U.S., and played a part in the gold-medal game where he added an assist and an empty net goal to seal the victory. As the 64th overall draft pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, Trocheck is lending his talents to the Rampage, hoping to land a roster spot in Florida.

On his first day of camp in San Antonio, Trocheck stopped to talk about his time in Russia at World Juniors, and what he hopes to achieve during his first professional season.

San Antonio Rampage: You were drafted in 2011, what was your reaction to being drafted and signed? What did your family think?
Vincent Trocheck:
It was just the beginning of my dream coming true. To get drafted by Florida was a big honor. I had followed them for a while and I’d talked to them before the draft. I signed with them a year later, and after that season, it was just another stepping stone towards my dream. Ever since then, I’ve just been working towards my goal.

SAR: You did very well in Russia at the World Junior Championship. How did that feel competing for your country, and then taking home the gold?
VT: That was an unbelievable experience to go over there and wear the USA crest on my shirt. To be able to just go there is a huge honor, and then to be able to win gold on top of it was just… Words can’t really describe the feeling.

SAR: Why did you decide to go to major juniors instead of the collegiate route?
VT: When I was younger, I was thinking college the whole way until my OHL draft year. Then that year I talked to a few teams, and I went to visit a few games, stuff like that. I talked to a few people, and I just liked the atmosphere and I thought that was my best chance to groom myself for the NHL.

SAR: What are you looking forward to most this season?
VT: I’m just going here and I’m trying to get to the big club. I’m going to work as hard as I can while I’m down here, and hopefully I get called up.

SAR: Who’s your favorite player? Who do you model your game after?
VT: Peter Forsberg has been my favorite player since I was a young kid.
