Pittsburgh Penguins Zach Trotman

Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Zach Trotman will not be available to the Penguins for at least four weeks. The team announced on Friday afternoon that Trotman underwent successful right knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus. General Manager Jim Rutherford said he would be out for four-to-six weeks.

Dr. Hans Olsen performed the surgery in Wilkes-Barre. O Jan. 13, the Penguins placed Trotman on the Injured Reserve list. 

Over the past three seasons, Trotman has played 24 regular-season games for the Pittsburgh Penguins and played 100 games for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. At the NHL level, Trotman has one assist with the Penguins. In his career, the defenseman has played 91 games for Pittsburgh and Boston, with 13 career points (3g, 10a).

In June 2019, Trotman, 30, signed a two-year, $1.4 million contract with a two-way option. Trotman makes $400,000 in the AHL.

This offseason, Zach Trotman and his wife, sportscaster Jeanna Trotman became parents. The couple shared photos of their son, Luca Trotman, who was born on Dec. 15.

The Penguins held Trotman out of the NHL postseason bubble. He has not played with the Penguins since the pandemic pause last March.
