Brock Alexander Trotter (born January 16, 1987) is a Canadian professional ice hockey Centre who is currently with Croatian club, KHL Medveščak Zagreb of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). He played two games in the National Hockey League with the Montreal Canadiens during the 2009–10 season.

Playing career[edit]

On April 15, 2008, he was recalled from the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League. He was expected to play his first NHL game on April 19, 2008, against the Boston Bruins but was a late scratch. In the 2009–10 season on February 5, 2010 Brock was again recalled from Hamilton Bulldogs to Montreal. He finally made his NHL debut on February 6, 2010 against the Pittsburgh Penguins in a 5-3 victory.[1] Playing with familiar Bulldogs teammates with Ryan White and David Desharnais, Trotter went scoreless in two games before returning to the Bulldogs to lead the team with 36 goals and place second to Desharnais with 77 points.

On July 28, 2010, Trotter left the Canadiens organization and North America to sign a two-year contract as a free agent with Latvian team Dinamo Riga of the KHL.[2]

On July 4, 2011, Trotter signed a one-year, two-way contract to return with the Canadiens. Trotter's return to Montreal was short lived when on October 23, 2011, he was traded to the Phoenix Coyotes along with a seventh-round pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft in exchange for forward Petteri Nokelainen and defenceman Garrett Stafford.[3] He was then assigned to the Coyotes' AHL affiliate, the Portland Pirates. Trotter was placed on his third team in the 2011–12 season, when he was reassigned by the Coyotes, as a part of an AHL trade for goaltender Peter Mannino and Kenndal McArdle to the St. John's IceCaps on March 2, 2012.[4]

After sitting out two consecutive seasons with injury, Trotter opted to make a return to professional hockey by signing a one month trial contract with Croatian club, KHL Medveščak Zagreb of the KHL on June 24, 2014.[5]
