The University of Denver hockey team will be without leading scorer Brock Trotter for undisclosed reasons during this weekend’s two-game series at Minnesota State, and no timetable has been announced for his return.
Trotter, who is not on the trip, leads the Pioneers with 13 goals, 18 assists and 31 points. He is the third-leading scorer in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association and 11th nationally. DU coach George Gwozdecky declined to reveal why the sophomore winger is absent, and when he might return.
“It’s a decision that’s been made internally, and he will not be with us this weekend,” Gwozdecky said from Minnesota. “Each of our players have private lives and I hope people respect their privacy.” (read rest of story)
