FloridaPanthers.com caught up with forward
Vincent Trocheck who is playing for Team USA at the World Championship in Minsk, Belarus.

Trocheck has played in five games for Team USA, while averaging 11:36 of ice time. He owns a 53.3% face-off winning percentage in the tournament, most recently winning five of six draws in Team USA’s 3-1 win over Finland on Sunday.

“It’s been pretty cool experience. Minsk is a really nice city. We have been able to walk around downtown, explore the city, see attractions and stuff like that. The buildings are more modern than you would think and the rink (Minsk Arena) that we play at is unbelievable.

It took a couple of days to adjust to the time difference. I tried to sleep on the plane on the way over, to try to get caught up on their time but it really takes a few days to get adjusted.

Our hotel here is really nice. I am rooming with Johnny Gaudreau. We were together at World Juniors (in UFA, Russia) last year so I know him a little bit.

I’ve been all over the line-up. I played with Gaudreau and captain Justin Abdelkader for a little bit as well as with Jimmy Hayes and Colin McDonald right now. We’ve got a good team, we’ve got a lot of good players, and everybody works hard.

My pregame routine is not really much different than what I usually do back home. We get pasta and chicken, the usual so that works out and then we have a couple of busses that take us over to the rink. We usually get there a couple of hours early and then get into our pregame routines.

Playing Belarus in our first game of the tournament was crazy. The fans here are wild. They are so loud, and with all the chants, it was kind of like being at a European soccer game, it was crazy. It was pretty cool to be able to get the win and to see the crowd get taken out of the game.

I’m not feeling worn down (on the number of games played this season). For my whole life, it’s been hockey year round so I’m kind of used to it. I’m just flattered that I’m over here and representing the U.S.A.
