Zach Trotman

(62) during the third period of Boston

The Boston Bruins announced this morning that they have once again recalled Zach Trotman.  Trotman has been one of those players that have bounced around between Boston and Providence as the NHL club has been struggling with injuries. The Bruins are heading out for a four game road trip out to California and Arizona, and the B’s are taking no chances with potential injuries to their blue line.

  • The Trotman call up makes a lot of sense. Zdeno Chara was considered questionable for the western road trip, and this will give the Bruins captain a few more games for healing and rehabilitation. Besides, I’m sure the fan base would much rather welcome home the captain when he plays again in the home black jersey.

    So far this season, Trotman has played in nine games for the Black and Gold. He has put up two points (no goals) for Boston. He’s a -1 with thirteen shots on goal. If he gets to play, it will be in a third pair roll or to cover any player that is being sat as a healthy scratch. Trotman had a solid season last year for the Providence Bruins. He put up twenty four points (eight goals) for the Baby B’s in the 2013-14 season. He was used heavily on the power play for Providence, where he earned three of those eight goals with a man advantage.

    Heading into this latest road trip, the Bruins are doing better than expected. With the list of injuries to the team (especially the defensemen) this season, the Black and Blue Bruins have held their own. They went 8-3-1 in the month of November. The Bruins are 14-9-1, giving them a total of twenty nine points. That places them fourth in the Atlantic, and sixth overall in the East.  From a playoff standpoint, they would have the top wild card slot if the playoffs started today.
