Trocheck makes return, helps Panthers top Maple Leafs

After spending the past two months recovering from a fractured ankle, Vincent Trocheck finally made his return to the ice.

The All-Star forward made his first appearance since Nov. 11 and delivered an assist to help the Florida Panthers top the Maple Leafs 3-1, snapping a seven-game losing streak. Trocheck played 18 minutes on 24 shifts in his return.

“I’ve been pushing for a while,” Trocheck said. “The day [the injury] happened, I gave them a date. I said Jan. 21 was the day I was going to come back. They told me I was full of [expletive].”

“We have an unbelievable training staff and I owe it all to them.”
