Trotter Out For Undisclosed Reason
CHN Staff Report
Denver sophomore forward Brock Trotter is not with the team for its trip this weekend to Minnesota State, and it's uncertain when he will return.
In not disclosing the reason for his absence, Denver coach George Gwozdecky revealed that it wasn't because of an injury.
"It's a decision that's been made internally, and he will not be with us this weekend," Gwozdecky told the Denver Post. "Each of our players have private lives and I hope people respect their privacy."
That mystery notwithstanding, the Pioneers lose their leading scorer. Trotter has 13 goals and 31 points, which places him third in the WCHA.
Trotter, a Brandon, Manitoba, native, 16 goals and 40 points in 40 games last season. In his first season, he played five games before getting injured and missing the rest of the season. He received a medical redshirt, which enabled to retain four years of eligibility.
