Lakers Land Big Defenseman

Chris Heisenberg is reporting that LSSU has received a verbal commitment from Wichita Falls Wildcats, of the NAHL, defenseman Zachary Trotman. The 6’3”, 190 pound, Novi native has 19 penalty minutes and has posted a minus 1 with no points in 10 appearances with Wichita this season. Prior to landing in Wichita this season Zach played for Detroit Victory Honda where he posted 3 goals and 9 points in 26 games in the U18 division in the 2007-08 season and 7 assists in 25 games in the U16 division in 2005-06.

In other recruiting news Traverse City forward Kyle Jean tallied two game-winning goals as the North Stars fashioned a 2-1 record against Mahoning Valley. On Friday, the Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., native scored the only goal of the game in a 1-0 triumph. After being held scoreless the next night, the 18-year-old Lake Superior State recruit scored the overtime game-winner on Sunday as the North Stars bested the Phantoms, 5-4.

"Kyle is so highly-skilled, and that's why he's going to a Division I college," said North Stars head coach Anthony Palumbo. “We needed big plays this weekend, and Kyle was right there to provide them."

I believe the Trotman kid played in 60+ games with 30 points for Honda last season and was perceived by many to be the cornerstone of that team which was ranked as high as #5 in the nation last year. He was drafted the last two seasons in the USHL and is still on the affiliate list there for next season. Maybe the CCHA sounded better than juniors to the high school senior?

Thanks for the info, I based by numbers on that stats that I found here:

Did see that he was selected by the Ohio Junior Blue Jackets in 2007 and Waterloo in 2008.
