|Assets:||Has the prototypical size all NHL scouts look for in a defenseman. Also moved the puck fairly well and limits his mistakes with or without the puck.|
|Flaws:||Doesn't have natural physicality, so he needs to work hard to become a more intimidating figure for the highest level. Also isn't a natural point producer.|
|Career Potential:||Decent defenseman with a little upside.|

NewsTrotman appears to be on track to crack the Bruins' lineup on a regular basis this coming season, the Boston Herald reports.
Bruins defenseman Zach Trotman scored his first National Hockey League goal, which proved to be the game-winner in the, 3-2, victory over the Red Wings on Thursday. | 04/02/2015 10:12 PM
NewsBruins defenseman Zach Trotman scored his first National Hockey League goal, which proved to be the game-winner in the, 3-2, victory over the Red Wings on Thursday.
ImpactWhat a time to get your first NHLgoal. Trotman had the puck on the leftside of Red Wings goaltender Petr Mrazek when Trotman just casually sent the puck to the front of the net. Mrazek was unable to play it as the puck sneaked under his left arm. The victory moves Boston into a tie with Detroit for third place in the Atlantic Division race.

Pro Hockey Talk
ImpactTrotman will come with a $625,000 annual cap hit at the NHL level. His deal is two-ways in 2014-15, but it's just one way for the second season. He had eight goals and 24 points in 53 AHL games last season.

Trotman returned to AHL Sunday | 12/30/2013 7:59 AM
NewsThe Bruins assigned Zach Trotman to Providence of the AHL on Sunday.
ImpactHe, along with David Warsofsky, were called up on an emergency basis for Saturday's game against Ottawa due to a number of injuries on the Boston blueline. Trotman did fairly well in his NHL debut. He took three shots on goal and had a neutral plus/minus rating in 16:41 of playing time in the Bruins' 4-3 loss. The 23-year-old Trotman has had some moderate success from an offensive perspective in both the CCHA with Lake Superior State University and with Providence of the AHL. That said, he is not a fantasy asset at this time.
Boston recalls blueliner Zach Trotman | 12/28/2013 3:30 PM
NewsZach Trotman has been called up on an emergency basis.
ImpactHe will be eligible to play Saturday night in Ottawa, but he may serve as a healthy scratch because the Bruins just brought up David Warsofsky earlier in the morning. Trotman was recalled after it was learned that Dennis Seidenberg would miss the rest of the 2013-14 season because of a knee injury.
Zach Trotman impresses Julien at camp | 09/16/2013 10:01 AM
NewsZach Trotman has impressed coach Claude Julien during training camp.
Impact"He's a strong kid who's got an unbelievable shot," said Julien, who has paired him with Zdeno Chara for part of camp. "I think he's improved immensely from where he was at the beginning of last year. Those are guys that sometimes are dark horses. Maybe they got overlooked when it came to the draft, but as their game starts coming along ... I think he's been a really good." He suffered three concussions last year in the AHL, from January to May, so it's incredible that he's even on the ice. The Bruins plan to use him in some NHL pre-season matches, but he's probably a long shot to be around by the time the regular season begins.
