The Hurricanes have acquired Vincent Trocheck from the Panthers for Erik Haula, Lucas Wallmark, Chase Priskie and Eetu Luostarinen.
Carolina will hope Trocheck can regain some of the elite form he flashed in the 2017-18 season, when he racked up a career high 75 points (31G/44A). Trocheck hasn't quite looked like himself since suffering a fractured ankle in November 2018. The 26-year-old has 10 goals and 26 assists through 55 games this season.
Trocheck (lower-body) is expected to play on Saturday.
Trocheck has missed the last seven games with a lower-body issue but the plan is for him to play on Saturday. Head coach Joel Quenneville told reporters that Trocheck "looked good" following Friday's practice, so expect an update a few hours prior to tomorrow's afternoon tilt. Trocheck has one goal and five assists (six points) in eight games this season.
Trocheck (lower-body) remains day-to-dayl will not play Thursday.
Trocheck will miss his seventh straight game on Thursday and remains day-to-day, which makes him questionable for their Saturday/Sunday back-to-back.

Trocheck (lower-body) will miss his fifth straight game.
Trocheck remains out of the Panthers lineup on Wednesday, which means the Panthers will continue to lean heavily on Noel Acciari (16:43 TOI/gm). Monitor Trocheck's status leading up to Saturday's game vs. the Red Wings.
Trocheck (lower-body) will not play on Sunday.
Trocheck (lower-body) is expected to miss his second straight game.
Trocheck missed the Panthers morning skate in Calgary and is not expected to play. Trocheck remains day-to-day and that leaves Brian Boyle to centre the second line again.
Trocheck (undisclosed) is not on the ice for warmups; will not play vs. the Penguins.
Trocheck always seemed unlikely to suit up against the Penguins after missing Monday's practice and Tuesday's morning skate. Brian Boyle will make his Panthers debut and centre the second-line in Trocheck's place.
Trocheck (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.
Trocheck missed Monday's practice and Tuesday's morning skate, suggesting that he will not be available for tonight's game vs. the Penguins. Head coach Joel Quenneville would not rule Trocheck out, listing him as questionable. The newly signed Brian Boyle will replace Trocheck in the lineup and Noel Acciari may move up to centre the second-line.
Trocheck (undisclosed) is questionable to play Tuesday vs. the Penguins.
Trocheck was absent from Monday's practice and head coach Joel Quenneville is unsure whether his second-line centre will be available on Tuesday. The Panthers recently signed Brian Boyle to a one-year deal and the veteran was skating in Trocheck's spot in Monday's session.
The Panthers have activated Vincent Trocheck from IR.
Trocheck is listed as a game-time decision for Friday’s game but activating him from IR all but confirms that the Panthers’ No.2 centre will be back in the lineup vs. the Maple Leafs. Look for Trocheck to centre a line with Jonathan Huberdeau and Nick Bjugstad in his return.
Trocheck (ankle) will be a game-time decision on Friday.
Trocheck appears ready to return to the Panthers lineup ahead of schedule after suffering a gruesome ankle injury on November 19th. Trocheck had a solid year going before getting hurt, posting 14 points (3G / 11A) in 18 games. Trocheck shot just 6.0 percent over that stretch but is a career 10.8 percent shooter, so he should be capable of adding 10-plus goals in the remaining 37 games.
Trocheck will undergo surgery to repair significant damage to his leg; out long-term.
Trocheck suffered a gruesome injury in Ottawa on Monday night and could miss the rest of the 2018-19 season. The Panthers likely won’t release an official timetable until after Trocheck’s surgery, but their centre depth just took a huge hit. Henrik Borgstrom could be recalled to fill-in for the 25-year-old.
Trocheck was given a “maintenance” day and is expected to play Thursday.
It looks like the Panthers have caught a break and Trocheck should be in the lineup tomorrow. This isn’t overly surprising considering he was able to play through a suspected ailment on Monday. Trocheck will head into Thursday’s game on a four-game point streak, picking up two goals and five assists (seven points) during that stretch.
Trocheck missed Wednesday’s practice with a suspected lower-body injury.
Trocheck seemed to be in some discomfort at the tail-end of the Panthers’ loss to the Senators on Monday. However, he was able to finish the game, collecting two assists in 20:15 TOI. The Panthers’ second-line centre continues his great season, having posted 26 goals and 38 assist (64 points) in 67 games. His absence from Wednesday’s practice clouds his status for Thursday’s game, but check in on him during tomorrow’s morning skate to see exactly what’s up.
Trocheck (ribs) was back on the ice on Wednesday and will play on Thursday.
Trocheck was banged up on Saturday but has been deemed good to go on Thursday. Trocheck has played very well this season, posting 14 goals and 21 assists (35 points) in 36 games this season.

The Panthers have signed Vincent Trocheck to a six-year contract worth $28.5 million ($4.75M AAV).
Trocheck is looking like a third-round steal from the 2011 NHL Draft. The 22-year-old centre is coming off of a huge 25-goal, 28-assist (53 points) season, earning himself a huge extension. He is a key member of a young core in Florida that will be looking to do even more damage in 2016-17. Trocheck should be able to turn in another 25/25 season.
Trocheck (ankle) will not play in Game 4.
Trocheck (ankle) will travel to Brooklyn; remains questionable for Game 3.
Trocheck has missed the Panthers last eight games with an ankle injury, but will travel with the team for Game 3 and could return to the lineup. He may not play on Sunday, but it is a good sign that he is nearing a return and should be back during the first round.
Trocheck (ankle) is listed as day-to-day; questionable for Game 1.
Trocheck has missed the last six games and appears to be in danger of missing the start of the playoffs. Trocheck did not skate on Monday and is still wearing a walking boot, so his return does not appear to be imminent. This is a tough break for Trocheck, who had 25 goals and 28 assists (53 points) in 76 games this season.
